Affective Events Theory

What is Affective Events Theory ?

‘Affective Events Theory’ or AET is a model developed by psychologists Howard M. Weiss and Russell Cropanzano to understand how emotions influence job performance and satisfaction.
As we human beings are mostly guided by emotions, it is natural that our emotions affect our performance at work. The long term experiences that an employee encounters during his or her duration of work dictates how satisfied he or she will be with his or her current job.
Armed with the knowledge of AET, HRs can create a great workplace by uplifting the employees and praising them for their achievements. HRs may even incentivise bonding with the teammates to ensure that the employees stay productive
