How can company employees help to create in creating a positive working environment? This problem statement was formed in collaboration with the university, as it was commenced to meet the standards. It was formed basing the research on the company where the researchers internship was held previously this year. Based on the experience, this issue stated was most relevant to the company and business world and the thesis subject options, taking into consideration the study subject. Being in the company for 3 consecutive months as an intern, the researcher could see how the company runs and is handling their everyday issues. This time spent there and observing the company operations helped to identify issues they face and see how well and in what ways they managed to tackle them. 2

1.4 Delimitation This thesis was written based on a certain company, specifically the organisation researchers internship was held in. It could have been written from a wider perspective and taking into consideration multiple companies as a whole, for example categorising them into private and public sectors. However, this approach would have not been suitable for this specific research, as it would have been too broad. Writing a research based on a wider perspective would also need extensive research and the work that would be needed to put in would require more time in order to be more focused on the overall work and its quality. Limiting the thesis qualifies the issues to be studied more in depth, and therefore dig deeper and make it more interesting. Writing the thesis at a wider scope will only allow the issue to be researched superficially. CHAPTER TWO Literature review 2.1 Maslow’s Theory of Needs Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a psychology theory posed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper, “A Theory of Human Motivation.” 1 There are five different levels of needs, listed from the most crucial ones to the least. 2 smallbusiness.chron.com 1 ibid 2 3

They are listed as follows: Psychological, Safety, Love/Belonging, Esteem, Self- actualisation. This basic pyramid of needs can be translated and find connections with a working environment. Psychological needs are what each human needs no matter what, like breathing, eating and drinking and sleeping, which is rest. This can be translated into a comfortable working environment, employees need to go to the bathroom, have a kitchen facility and the temperature in the workplace cannot be too hot nor cold. The Safety means that people need to feel that they are safe. This doesn't stop with only 3 ourselves, the need to feel is also that our family, our resources, pets, home etc is safe, as well. This can be translated into job security - either it be virtual (passwords and identity) or physical - code/key access, safety exits, safety classes and lectures.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
