How to Apply the Maslow Hierarchy of Needs to a Business

Clearly, an individual at the self-esteem and self-actualization levels would be a preferred employee.
The problem stems from the fact that most organizations do not create the culturally conducive environment for people to reach Maslow's higher levels. The main reason is the chasm between employers and employees stemming from the lack of trust between them--especially during the last decade.

Applying Hierarchy of Needs to Business

Companies should create a culture that supports progress in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.
