Huma is working in a company on a permanent basis. As per the job agreement she had to work for 8 hours a day and was free to work overtime. Huma worked overtime, due to which she fell ill and had to take leave from the work. No one showed concern and enquired about the health.She realised that she was fulfilling only some of her needs while some other needs still remained to be fulfilled.
(i)By quoting the lines from the above para, identify the needs of Huma which she is able to fulfil.
(ii)Also explain two other needs of Huma followed by the above needs, which still remained to be statisfied.


SOLUTION
i. Huma is able to fulfill the "physiological and security needs".
Physiological needs comprise of essential requirements for the sustenance of life. They are at the top of the hierarchy.The fulfillment of these needs is necessary for survival.For example,food,clothing,shelter are physiological needs. An employee requires a certain basic salary for the satisfaction of these needs.
On the other hand, security needs relate to the physical and the economic security and well being.
Since"she has a permanent job", we can say that these two needs have been fulfilled.
ii. The two needs that still remain to be satisfied are "belongingness and esteem needs".
Belongingness needs comprise of the social needs of an individual such as affection, acceptance,companionship,etc.This is because every individual yearns for social acceptance wants respect and acknowledgement in the peer group.
One can say that these two needs remain unfulfilled from the fact that even when Huma falls sick and takes leave,nobody shows concern towards her.
