In the 1920’s the Hawthorne’s study was invented and conducted at the Hawthorne’s plant of the Western Electric company by Elton Mayo and Fritz Roethlisberger. For which is the research that was the managerial focus on the strategy incorporating within the social psychological work aspects in human behavior within the organization. This original study was looked upon as whether if more workers were responsive and worked more efficiently under certain work environment conditions (Reading: The Hawthorne’s Study, n.d.). With surprise results, Mayo and Fritz Roethlisberger were seeing that the study within the workers was more responsive to the social, environmental factors such as working together as a group and the interest within the managers that put in the work than the elements.
For the Hawthorn’s study, it is discovered that the workers were highly responsive to the added attention from their managers and the feeling the workers got that the managers care about and were very interested in their work ethics (Reading: The Hawthorne’s Study, n.d.).

For human resource theories, a productivity and creativity implantation can be maximized for employee turnovers for better work ethics for which is described as job satisfaction for the organization. The main idea for this study is to initiate a clear source of motivating, offer financial incentives, and a pleasant working environment for the employees. It is the focus on the individual’s work ethic and how they can improve within their work performance.
