Biographical Characteristics MaritalStatus Gender Tenure Age
. Age –Older workers bring experience, judgment, a strong work ethic, and commitment to quality. Gender –Few differences between men and women that affect job performance. Race (the biological heritage used to identify oneself) –Contentious issue: differences exist, but could be more culture- based than race-based.
Methods of Shaping Behavior Methods of Shaping Behavior NegativeReinforcementNegativeReinforcementPositiveReinforcementPositiveReinforcement ExtinctionExtinctionPunishmentPunishment
Reinforcement contingencies - relationships between a person’s behavior and the consequences resulting from it Negative reinforcement (avoidance) people learn to perform acts that lead to the removal of undesired events Punishment - decreasing undesirable behavior by using undesirable consequences Extinction – no longer reinforced tend to gradually diminish in strength Positive reinforcement -people learn to perform behaviors leading to the the desired outcomes
Theories of Learning
Key Concepts Reinforcement is required to change behavior. Some rewards are more effective than others. The timing of reinforcement affects learning speed and permanence.

Chapter 3 Attitudes and Job Satisfaction
Attitudes Evaluative statements or judgments concerning objects, people, or events. The emotional or feeling segment of an attitude The opinion or belief segment of an attitude An intention to behave in a certain way toward someone or something
What Are Attitudes? Cognitive component Affective component Behavioral component
Evaluative statements or judgments concerning objects, people, or events. Affective Component The emotional or feeling segment of an attitude. Cognitive component The opinion or belief segment of an attitude. Behavioral Component An intention to behave in a certain way toward someone or something.
Types of Attitudes Job satisfaction Job involvement Organizational commitment
Outcomes of Job Satisfaction Job Performance –Satisfied workers are more productive AND more productive workers are more satisfied! –The causality may run both ways. Organizational Citizenship Behaviors –Satisfaction influences OCB through perceptions of fairness. Customer Satisfaction –Satisfied frontline employees increase customer satisfaction and loyalty. Absenteeism –Satisfied employees are moderately less likely to miss work. 3-71
What are the Major Job Attitudes? Job Satisfaction A positive feeling about the job resulting from an evaluation of its characteristics Job Involvement Psychological identification with the job where perceived performance is important to self-worth Psychological Empowerment Influence over the job, competence, job meaningfulness, and autonomy
And Yet More Major Job Attitudes… Perceived Organizational Support (POS) –Degree to which employees believe the organization values their contribution and cares about their well- being. –Higher when rewards are fair, employees are involved in decision-making, and supervisors are seen as supportive. –High POS is related to higher OCBs and performance. Employee Engagement –The degree of involvement with, satisfaction with, and enthusiasm for the job. –Engaged employees are passionate –Organizational Commitment
Causes of Job Satisfaction Pay influences job satisfaction only to a point. After about $40,000 a year (in the U. S.), there is no relationship between amount of pay and job satisfaction. Money may bring happiness, but not necessarily job satisfaction. Personality can influence job satisfaction. Negative people are usually not satisfied with their jobs.

Types of Attitudes
The Theory of Cognitive Dissonance Desire to reduce dissonance depends on Importance of elements creating dissonance Degree of individual influence over elements Rewards involved in dissonance Desire to reduce dissonance depends on Importance of elements creating dissonance Degree of individual influence over elements Rewards involved in dissonance Cognitive Dissonance Any incompatibility between two or more attitudes or between behavior and attitudes. Individuals seek to reduce this gap, or “dissonance”
Does Behavior Always Follow from Attitudes ? Leon Festinger – No, the reverse is sometimes true! Cognitive Dissonance: Any incompatibility between two or more attitudes or between behavior and attitudes Individuals seek to reduce this uncomfortable gap, or dissonance, to reach stability and consistency Consistency is achieved by changing the attitudes, modifying the behaviors, or through rationalization Desire to reduce dissonance depends on: Importance of elements Degree of individual influence Rewards involved in dissonance
Sample Attitude Survey E X H I B I T 3-5
Job Satisfaction How Satisfied Are People in Their Jobs? –Job satisfaction declined to 50.7% in 2000 –Decline attributed to: Pressures to increase productivity Less control over work
The Effect of Job Satisfaction on Employee Performance Satisfaction and Productivity –Satisfied workers aren’t necessarily more productive. –Worker productivity is higher in organizations with more satisfied workers. Satisfaction and Absenteeism –Satisfied employees have fewer avoidable absences. Satisfaction and Turnover –Satisfied employees are less likely to quit. –Organizations take actions to cultivate high performers and to weed out lower performers.

ContrastEffectContrastEffect Selective Perception Selective Perception Stereotyping Halo Effect Projection Frequently Used Shortcuts When Judging Others
Selective Perception –People selectively interpret what they see on the basis of their interests, background, experience, and attitudes Halo Effect –Drawing a general impression about an individual on the basis of a single characteristic Contrast Effects –Evaluation of a person’s characteristics that are affected by comparisons with other people recently encountered who rank higher or lower on the same characteristics
Another Shortcut: Stereotyping Judging someone on the basis of one’s perception of the group to which that person belongs – a prevalent and often useful, if not always accurate, generalization Profiling –A form of stereotyping in which members of a group are singled out for intense scrutiny based on a single, often racial, trait.
Specific Applications in Organizations Employment interview Performance expectations Performance evaluation Employee effort Employee loyalty
Specific Shortcut Applications in Organizations Employment Interview –Perceptual biases of raters affect the accuracy of interviewers’ judgments of applicants –Formed in a single glance – 1/10 of a second! Performance Expectations –Self-fulfilling prophecy (Pygmalion effect): The lower or higher performance of employees reflects preconceived leader expectations about employee capabilities Performance Evaluations –Appraisals are often the subjective (judgmental) perceptions of appraisers of another employee’s job performance –Critical impact on employees

Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs Self Actualization ActualizationEsteemSocialSafetyPhysiological
Early Theories of Motivation These early theories may not be valid, but they do form the basis for contemporary theories and are still used by practicing managers. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory –Alderfer’s ERG (Existence, Relatedness, and Growth) McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory McClelland’s Theory of Needs
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs There is a hierarchy of five needs. As each need is substantially satisfied, the next need becomes dominant. Assumptions –Individuals cannot move to the next higher level until all needs at the current (lower) level are satisfied –Must move in hierarchical order Lower Order External Higher Order Internal
Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory Key Point: Satisfaction and dissatisfaction are not opposites but separate constructs Extrinsic and Related to Dissatisfaction Intrinsic and Related to Satisfaction
Cognitive Evaluation Theory Goal-Setting Theory –Management by Objectives (MBO) Self-Efficacy Theory –Also known as Social Cognitive Theory or Social Learning Theory Reinforcement Theory Equity Theory Expectancy Theory Contemporary Theories of Motivation 6-156
Bandura’s Self-Efficacy Theory An individual’s belief that he or she is capable of performing a task. –Higher efficacy is related to: Greater confidence Greater persistence in the face of difficulties Better response to negative feedback (work harder) –Self-Efficacy complements Goal-Setting Theory. Given Hard Goal Higher Self-Set Goal Increased Confidence Higher Performance
Increasing Self-Efficacy Enactive mastery –Most important source of efficacy –Gaining relevant experience with task or job –“Practice makes perfect” Vicarious modeling –Increasing confidence by watching others perform the task –Most effective when observer sees the model to be similar to him- or herself Verbal persuasion –Motivation through verbal conviction –Pygmalion and Galatea effects - self-fulfilling prophecies Arousal –Getting “psyched up” – emotionally aroused – to complete task –Can hurt performance if emotion is not a component of the task
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs X H I B I T
Theory X Workers Dislike Work Avoid Responsibility Little Ambition Theory Y Workers Enjoy Work Accept Responsibility Self-Directed
Theory X (traditional approach) Theory Y (modern approach) Distrusting Accepting, promotes betterment Orientation toward people Low (disinterested) High (very interested) Interest in working Basically Lazy Need to achieve and be responsible Assumptions about people Work when pushed Work when appropriately trained and recognized Conditions under which people will work hard Theory X Versus Theory Y

Self-Efficacy Self Esteem, which is…. Individuals’ degree of liking or disliking themselves. An individual’s feeling that s/he can complete a task (e.g. “I know I can!”) Enhances probability that goals will be achieved Not to be confused with:
Reinforcement Theory Consequences Rewards No Rewards Punishment Behavior
Reinforcement Theory Similar to Goal-Setting Theory, but focused on a behavioral approach rather than a cognitive one. –Behavior is environmentally caused –Thought (internal cogitative event) is not important Feelings, attitudes, and expectations are ignored –Behavior is controlled by its consequences – reinforcers –Is not a motivational theory but a means of analysis of behavior –Reinforcement strongly influences behavior but is not likely to be the sole cause
Adams’ Equity Theory Employees compare their ratios of outcomes-to-inputs of relevant others. –When ratios are equal: state of equity exists – there is no tension as the situation is considered fair –When ratios are unequal: tension exists due to unfairness Underrewarded states cause anger Overrewarded states cause guilt –Tension motivates people to act to bring their situation into equity
Ratio Comparison* Employee’s Perception Outcomes A Inputs A Outcomes A Inputs A Outcomes A Inputs A Outcomes B Inputs B Outcomes B Inputs B Outcomes B Inputs B < = > Inequity (Under-Rewarded) Equity Inequity (Over-Rewarded) * Where A is the employee, and B is a relevant other or referent. Equity Theory
Equity Theory (cont’d) Choices for dealing with inequity: 1.Change inputs (slack off) 2.Change outcomes (increase output) 3.Distort/change perceptions of self 4.Distort/change perceptions of others 5.Choose a different referent person 6.Leave the field (quit the job) Choices for dealing with inequity: 1.Change inputs (slack off) 2.Change outcomes (increase output) 3.Distort/change perceptions of self 4.Distort/change perceptions of others 5.Choose a different referent person 6.Leave the field (quit the job)

Vroom’s Expectancy Theory The strength of a tendency to act in a certain way depends on the strength of an expectation that the act will be followed by a given outcome and on the attractiveness of the outcome to the individual. Expectancy of performance success Instrumentality of success in getting reward Valuation of the reward in employee’s eyes
