Work-Value Systems of White-Collar Workers

Abstract

It is suggested that variations in work-value systems can be explained in terms of reference-group behavior. Herzberg's dual-factor theory of job satisfaction is challenged by relating value systems of white-collar workers to the promotion rates of their organization. The findings indicate that the importance attributed to intrinsic work aspects varies with promotion rates.
