Need for Employees' Welfare in the Principles

It is obvious that in this 14 principles something is missing: the inclusion of "staff welfare". Because after all proper measures has been put in place, and the end-result is achieved, what becomes of this team that achieved this goal, apart from being remunerated?

Need of Employee Welfare

Some more comments are:
1. An organization performs well, if all employees perform well. The job of management is to elicit these peaks of performance from employees, and money can be one tool for this. But, money is far from the only motivator in the world of businesses (take for instance organizations like ngo, associations or intergovernmental organizations)
2. The principles of Fayol need to be put in the context of the beginning of the 20st century in the USA. When Ford was trying to build the first cars for humanity. Ford has to cut cost. A T-model car was $600 (without the scientific management principle), using Fayol / Taylor principles, car prices were divided by 3 and this was great! By organizing the workplace for production. This did not affect the welfare of employees - and it is why these principles are largely acknowledged in the world. Better practices at the workplace do not affect welfare of employee and improves the team work.
