Welcome to our seven-part video course on "Effectance: The Key to Motivation." Effectance motivation is a relatively new theory. It's based on the premise that there's a fundamental, underlying force that's linked to job satisfaction, job enrichment, and individual motivation. It's suggested that, once basic physical needs are satisfied, there's a drive to have an effect on your environment, through your own efforts. In this video course, you will learn how to create better job enrichment, motivational situations, and drive higher performance. This program is valid for one PDC for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP and one hour of recertification credit through the HR Certification Institute. Please be sure to note the program ID number in your online recertification file.
