Hi Guys,

As a HR professionals many of them don't know the HR related topics, authors, principles etc. As a awakening thing, I thought of starting a HR quiz, which will show emphasize only on HR related topics.

The procedure is like this. Now I will start a question related to HR. Who answers the question first will have to post the next question, and it will continue further, with the person who gives the right answer will have to post new question. The winner will be selected by the person who posted the question. He/ she should select only the person who has posted the correct answer immediately after his / her question.

The answer may be open ended or objective type. For open ended questions, try to answer as short as possible, preferably as a kind of gist or abstract.

Let me start with first one:

Maslow's Hierarchy Theory - Related to Motivation. However it is inter-related to which of the below topics:

a) Training

b) Recruitment

c) Appraisal

d) Recognition

e) Combination of all

Explain the theory with the short note.

Now, I will wait for your answers. The first person who posts the correct answer will be selected by me. Then he/ she can continue posting the next question.

Hi Vissumba,
Your answer is correct, but at this moment you are not the winner, as you have not completed the answer. Please check the question again. There is a open ended question also asked.

ans: E
according to maslow "that a person's motivation needs could be arranged in hierarchy manner. In essence he belive that once a given level of need become satisfied it no longer several to motivation. The nxt high level of need had to activated in order to motivate.
There r 2 level orders of needs : 1) Lower order needs 2) higher order needs
lower : physlogical needs, safety needs, social needs
higher : esteem needs, self actualization needs
Physlogical needs : food, cloth, shelter, sleep, sex, thrust.
safety needs : free from natural calamities dangerours occurs
social needs : belogningness association with other persons
esteemed needs : self respect, reconiztaion and good repetition in the eyes of others
self actualization needs : maximum utilization of onces potenalities to achieving goals in lifes

Hi All,
There is slight changes in the rules of this quiz. Once the winner is announced they need to post their next question within 4 hrs time to continue the spirit with the participants. If they fail to post is for any reason, the chance will be given to next winner (The second most early and correctly replied person). The exclusion will be only for Saturday and Sunday. The winner in Friday's question, can post their question either same day or Monday.
This is to facilitate the people, because many of the people are not working on both the days.
Now Vissumba can post the next question before 2 pm.

Hi all,
I think Maslow's theory was never related to reward, recruitment or any thing like that at all. He never went into using "these words" in his famous essay on this subject. His main emphasis was on what motivates a human being. Academicians who came later extended it to these management and business aspects. Maslow never approved of the idea of extending it to management fields.
Hence, the answer E is wrong according to my knowledge.
Thanks

To support the above view kindly go through the original article of Maslow (1943) at the link given below-
http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Maslow/motivation.htm
The relationship of it to management theories esp. X and Y theory is given beautifully in this link below-
<link no longer exists - removed>
In 1965,..Maslow's manuscript was published as Eupsychian Management (eupsychia was Maslow's term for the ideal society or organization)...which made him a "international renown as a founder of the rapidly growing movement to humanize the workplace"....which many people don't associate him with.
Kindly pardon me if I was not able to do justice to The Great Maslow. :D

Hi Seema,

Though the Maslow's theory basically evolved based on Motivation, but it is inter related to the answer given. It can be interpreted anyways. Secondly, the quiz is to identify the correct answer. There may be some wrong answers also.

I have compared the answer given by Krishna, on how it is related to the options given above.

Physlogical needs : food, cloth, shelter, sleep, sex, thrust.

- Recruitment- A person needs a job to get the above. Without money he can't get the basic need of above.



safety needs : free from natural calamities dangerours occurs

Appraisal: To get the job security,the performance of an individual will be much more effective, which will be measured thru appraisal.

social needs : belogningness association with other persons

Training: Provides not only technical skills, there are lot more soft skills like Inter personal relationships, Personality development, Communication skill etc which are necessary to get along with the people.

esteemed needs : self respect, reconiztaion and good repetition in the eyes of others

Recognition: When a person is satisfied with the above, naturally he will look for recognition, which is promotion etc or some kind of job satisfaction or respectful position in an organization.

self actualization needs : maximum utilization of onces potenalities to achieving goals in life

Hope this would have clarified your point of discussion.

Any one would like to interpret in a different way or supporting Ms.Seema's views.

Yes Preet you may be right. However, my idea of the post was just to bring to notice of the viewers that these are the extensions of his original theory by others. He never talked of recruitment in his essay. And, from what i understood from his original writing, others put concepts/terms of their own and combined it with Maslow's theory. I might be wrong as well.
