Abstract: This paper sets up an efficiency wage model which combines goal-attainment theory and the expectancy-valence approach. Taking account of the psychological work motivation, we find that the aspiration for goal attainment may be a substitute for unemployment as an instigator of work motivation in full employment. In addition, since raising the firm’s goal has a diverse impact on the high and low need-for-achievement workers, a higher goal-setting does not appear capable of increasing worker effort within firms. This finding reconciles the conflicting experimental results in industrial psychology literature.
