21 Equity TheoryTheory arguing that we prefer situations of Balance or Equity.Proposes that employees perceive what they get from a job situation (outcomes) in relation to what they put in (inputs) and then compare their inputs-outcomes ratio with the inputs-outcomes ratios of relevant others.If the ratios are perceived as equal then a state of equity (fairness) exists.If the ratios are perceived as unequal, inequity exists and the person feels under- or over-rewarded. If under reward then you experience anger or frustration! If over reward the you may experience guilt!When inequities occur, employees will attempt to do something to rebalance the ratios (seek justice).
22 Reaction to Perceived Inequity Reduce inputsIncrease outcomesRationalize inputs or outcomesChange for the referentLeave
23 Equity Theory Employee responses to perceived inequities: Distort own or others’ ratios.Induce others to change their own inputs or outcomes.Change own inputs (increase or decrease efforts) or outcomes (seek greater rewards).Choose a different comparison (referent) other (person, systems, or self).Quit their job.Employees are concerned with both the absolute and relative nature of organizational rewards.
