1) One theory that could be used to refer to motivation in an organisation such as DrainFlow is Frederick Herzberg’s ‘Two factor theory of motivation’ theory, [Huczynski and Buchanan, 2001, p. 305]. According to this theory, there is two sets of factors that could make an employee to be content or discontent with their job, the motivator factors which consists of the individual’s level of achievement, advancement, growth, recognition, responsibility and the work itself, this would lead to the satisfaction of employees. The other factor is hygiene factors which consist of the individual’s pay, company policy, supervisor style, status, security and working conditions, which would lead to dissatisfaction, [Huczynski and Buchanan, 2001, p. 305]. According to Frederick Herzberg (1968), an increase of hygiene factors or context factors would not lead to an increased of motivation and performance despite it removing the dissatisfactions of an employee. Rather he argues that organisations should use Vertical loading factors to satisfy job enrichment of an employee.

This is a major reason for why a gap exists between men and women, as there is a distinct difference in time put in by employees by gender. Full time jobs are considered to be a minimum of 35 hours working a week, and the “80 cents to a man’s dollar” statistic simply takes the earnings of all the individuals in that pay range. It becomes clear then that the statistic is ignoring a rather large work time disparity and making what a man earns in nearly nine hours equivalent to what a female earned in eight.

From personal experience, when the holidays are over, business slows down tremendously. People have spent too much money during the holidays, thus they try to save more after.
