Hierarchy of needs

HR Glossary

Hierarchy of needs

Created by Abraham Maslow, this is the concept that the things humans need are incremental, and satisfaction of higher level needs is only achieved after those lower in the hierarchy are satisfied. At the base of the hierarchy is basic physical needs, such as food and shelter, up to self-actualisation at the top of the ‘pyramid’.
