The "Social Laws of Reciprocity" govern relationships of interdependence, like employer -employee.  Both types of reciprocity are referenced in terms we commonly use:  


​​When firms maintain positive reciprocity, they control engagement.  With Diaplan, you retain profit that you now forfeit.


Harmonious, productive workforces where managers care about staff's needs:


1. Staff want to "acquire" specific things from their manager and the company to satisfy their     Extrinsic Motivators

2. Staff want a boss to "inspire" them through their Intrinsic Motivators   Motivated people

​    produce more.  Disengagement is red ink on the bottom line.    

       Staff Need Satisfaction

       and​ Corporate Profits

       rise in tandem - cause 

       and effect.

Our Vision

​​           Why Work Needs are not Satisfied

From the Studies of Mayo, Maslow, McGregor, Herzberg and others we learned much about work needs and human motivation.  By combining their findings with Diaplan's long-term empirical studies, we compiled a table of Extrinsic and Intrinsic Needs.  Our Survey measures satisfaction of these, then recommends strategies to close satisfaction gaps.

Associates have all 16 needs our Survey measures.  Strengths of particular needs vary individually. Managers' needs often differ greatly from associates' needs. Managers often  overlook needs that are unimportant to them.  Unmet needs increase negative reciprocity.
