This paper defines this theory by Maslow and examines its importance to American businesses today. Maslow's theory of hierarchy of needs discusses the hierarchy and satisfaction of various human needs and how people pursue these needs. This theory is used by human resource managers to motivate their employees.

From the Paper:

"These theories are fully applicable in today's work setting. As far as the matter of the applicability of these theories to hospital employees is concerned, one should first identify as to whether a hospital employee fits the profile of an average business employee? Does he respond to the same motivator patterns as identified by Maslow? Does he possess the same hierarchy of needs as possessed by an average business employee?"
