This model based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs allows managers to assess not only the level of engagement of team members, but also what each team member envisions for the higher levels. This way, when setting goals and creating a plan, managers can focus on what matters to that specific employee. This might also make employees feel that their needs matter, thus feeling more valued. Managers may also use this activity to assess to what extent they are meeting those as leaders, as well as the organization as a whole. Taking different levels of an employee assessment into consideration simultaneously provides a fuller picture of the workforce’s state of engagement, including the general needs and what should be prioritized.
