In the study of organisational behaviour, the expectancy theory of motivation was first proposed by Victor Vroom.

Expectancy theory predicts that employees in an organisation will be motivated when they believe that:

  • putting in more effort will yield better job performance
  • better job performance will lead to organisational rewards, such as an increase in salary or benefits
  • these predicted organisational rewards are valued by the employee in question.
