Rewards approach

An ideal approach to rewards at work place can be derived from Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Maslow outlined a hierarchy of needs whereby humans are motivated to reach the highest level called self-actualization signifying the state in which a human realizes their optimal potential and remains intrinsically motivated. The levels are usually represented in the form of a pyramid with self-actualization being at the top of the pyramid. Maslow also urged that unless we satisfy the lower levels, we cannot expect one to move up to the top.
