In this scenario you have some many different issues going on at Sun-2-Shade. You have employees that are no longer motivated; you have employees that just don’t want to come in to work. This is not how a business should be, employees so be eager and excited about coming into the workplace. So this is my intake on the Maslow, Herzberg & McGregor’s theory to solve this issue.
First off we need to solve the issues that are currently going on in the office, you have employee’s that don’t seem motivated, you have people complaining about their job being boring , you have employees coming in late, then you have some that apparently don’t want my help.

Theory Y assumptions are about how people enjoy work and they work towards their goals.
My conclusion is the best way to motivate employees is to make the job fun and interesting, make sure they are reaching their goals and using their potential to the...
