  Defining Valence in Vroom's Theory
Richie Siziba, HR Consultant, Member
  Hi, try processing this definition, valence means "value" and refers to beliefs about outcome desirability (Redmond, 2010).
For instance, a bonus may not increase the motivation for an employee who is motivated by formal recognition or by increased status such as promotion.
Valence can be thought of as the pressure or importance that a person puts on an expected outcome.. Hope that helps!
