incentive equity theory return of human resource management
In the modern human resources development and management process, the people of modern management concept has been updated."People-oriented, highly satisfied employees incentive mechanism", has become a hot spot now human resources management.Human has more by the organization's attention, and has become the key factor to realize the strategic objectives of the organization.

The main content of the 1 equality theory

In the process of organizational behavior theory, equity theory and social comparison theory, proposed by American behavioral scientist, psychologist Adams, it focuses on the effects of compensation for people working enthusiasm, motivation and perception is the people, is one of the important theory of modern human resources management.The theory is an important guarantee of organization incentive employee, the pursuit of high efficiency to achieve the organization's objectives, in human resources development and management process, has the important practical significance.
The main content of justice theory is rational, fair compensation distribution have on staff motivation, the main content is:
(1) when people put their feelings with others paid remuneration feeling compared, available equation:
Where: Qp on behalf of their remuneration feeling; Ip represents their personal investment is made.
Qo on behalf of their own to others the reward feeling; Io represents himself to others do into feeling.
As for inequality, may have the following two situations:
(1) Qp/Ip > Qo/Io in this case, he may be required to reduce their pay or at the beginning of automatic do more work, but in the course of time, he would have to estimate their technology and work, finally realized he really should be so high in the treatment, and his work will return to the past.
(2) Qp/Ip < Qo/Io in this case, he may be required to increase their income or reduce their future effort, so that the left increases, so that both sides of the equation are equal; he may require the organization to reduce comparing like income or let the future increase in order to make the right effort is reduced, so that both sides of the equation tends to equal to.In addition he can find another person as the comparison objects, in order to achieve psychological balance.
(2) based on the transverse comparison, people often do the longitudinal comparison, namely their current investment efforts and ratio of the rewards, with their past investment effort and reward ratio obtained the past compared.When the two are equal, people will think is fair,
Available: Qpp/Ipp=Qpl/Ipl
Where: Qpp representative of your personal now paid feeling; Ipp representative of your personal investment feeling now.
Qpl representative of your personal past paid feeling; Ipl representative of your personal sense of past inputs.
As for inequality, may have the following two situations:
(1) Qpp/Ipp < Qpl/Ipl and when this happens, people will have a sense of injustice, causing work enthusiasm drops.
(2) Qpp/Ipp > Qpl/Ipl and when this happens, people will have a sense of injustice.But don't feel to get more pay, but will take the initiative to do more work.
(3) the fair representation of
Adams pointed out that the fair has two forms: one is the distributive justice, employee in with others or his past comparison, feel the reward and labor are the same.Two is the fairness of the program, namely of the employee performance evaluation, promotion and discipline management program that is fair, equitable.
Equity theory, that everyone will be consciously or unconsciously, will you pay the labor and reward and others pay the labor and reward for comparison, will put yourself now pay labor and reward and his past labor and reward are compared, and the comparison is the normal psychological reflection.
A sense of fairness and unfairness is a social psychological phenomenon.It is a purely human psychology in the subjective, the reaction.The psychological basis is the human perception for the motivation relation.Employees are compared to its inputs and he has paid, judge of this comparison results in the psychology, and whether the sense of fairness.Therefore, the equity theory the basic view is the objective existence, but the fair itself is a very complex problem.
