  14. SECURITY NEED (need for personal security in a family and society that protects against violence and hunger) Once you move up a level, needs below your current level are not a priority THE PHYSIOLOGICAL NEEDS (need for food,water, shelter and clothing) BBI2O Unit 1 Subunit 1.A

  15. SECURITY NEED (need for personal security in a family and society that protects against violence and hunger) LOVE AND BELONGING NEED (need for belonging, to receive and give love, appreciation and friendship) THE PHYSIOLOGICAL NEEDS (need for food,water, shelter and clothing) BBI2O Unit 1 Subunit 1.A

What does this mean for business Maslow’s Hierarcy … impact on business • Physiological needs - wife/child-abuse help-lines, social security benefits, roadside assistance • Safety needs - home security products, insurance • Love & Belonging needs - dating and match-making services, chat-lines, clubs and membership societies • Esteem needs - cosmetics, fast cars, home improvements, furniture, fashion, • Self-Actualization needs – University … Rosetta Stone? (since very few people reach this level , it’s less lucrative for businesses, therefore fewer products are developed to satisfy this need) BBI2O Unit 1 Subunit 1.A

  24.
