"Expectancy Theory of Motivation"

There are many ways to motivate employees. The important thing for any manager or employer is knowing which method will work for their staff and how to implement it. One of the most effective ways to motivate employees is outlined in the Expectancy Theory.

Expectancy Theory is a theory initially proposed by Victor Vroom of the Yale School of Management.

Professor Vroom realized that there was a connection between motivation and the skills, personality, knowledge and experience of employees as individuals. He understood that motivated employees performed better.

The theory suggests that individuals are motivated by anticipated results or consequences. In this way, behavior and performance can be affected by understanding that choices need to be made.
