Motivational theory

Organizations, especially when unemployment rates are low, need to implement organizational policies, practices, and changes that can assist in recruiting and retaining quality employees. When an organization has a limited budget, it is not always possible to increase compensation and benefit offerings. For the purpose of this discussion forum, do the following:

Select a motivational model/theory: Equity Theory, Expectancy Theory, Hackman and Oldman, Job Characteristic Model, McClelland’s Need Theory, Motivation-Hygiene Theory, Porter and Lawler’s Extension, or Vroom.
Explain this motivation model/theory in your own words.
Then, explain how this model/theory can be used to motivate employees of a small organization that is operating under the constraints of a limited budget.
