Managing Compensation



According to expectancy theory, if Joe is rewarded for his high level of performance on a major project at ABC Co. with a set of golf clubs, but Joe does not golf and has no intention of taking up the sport, which linkage/relationship may not be viewed as positive and may not motivate Joe to perform well in the future?

Cite at least (4) references using APA format in-text and on a reference page. This assignment should be double spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font, with 1-inch margins.
