Creating Powerful Hospitality Teams

restaurant staff training guide

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper “A Theory of Human Motivation” in Psychological Review. Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans’ innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms Physiological, Safety, Belongingness and Love, Esteem, Self-Actualization and Self-Transcendence needs to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through.

At the base of the above chart, you will see Physiological needs, this is where we will get the first opportunity to meet the needs of a new hire or current staff member. It’s important to note here that messing with the base of this chart can nullify and confuse all efforts you spend on the following steps of the pyramid to Growth (Self-Actualization). For our purposes as leaders, we will work from the bottom up.
