Work Values and Their Effect on Work Behavior and Work Outcomes in Female and Male Managers

Work Values and Their Effect on Work Behavior and Work Outcomes in Female and Male Managers A longitudinal sample of over 800 MBA graduates surveyed across a 16-year period was recruited to investigate the relationship of work values to work effort, salary levels, and other work outcomes. As predicted, certain work values were related to higher salary levels and to the number of hours worked. Changing companies more often and receiving more promotions were also significantly related to work values. Work values did not differ for women and men in the sample, except that women were higher in the value of wanting to do an excellent job. Controlling for work values did not explain significantly higher salaries for men as compared to women. Implications of these data are discussed. Sex Roles Springer Journals
