Abstract

Introduction SINCE publication of the Motivation-Hygiene (Mainthe tenance) theory of job attitudes in the book, The Motivation to Work, by Herzberg, et al. (1959), there has been a gratifying number of replications and extensions of the original study (Schwartz, et al., 1963; Myers, 1964; Saleh, 1964). These follow-up investigations have validated the theory for a wide range of occupations at many levels and for diverse organizations. A forthcoming review by this writer will describe at length the constantly enlarging literature on the theory. This paper presents the latest replication of studies pertaining to theory in The Motivation to Work, derived in this case from a sample of lower level supervisors representing a wide range of industry in Finland. Although the author has received reports that the theory has been shown to hold in foreign lands and cultures, these are the only data available from crosscultural validation. The study was carried out during the first part of 1964 while the writer was a Fulbright Research Professor attached to the School of Social Science in Tampere, Finland. A few preparatory remarks about Finland may help in orienting the reader to this northern land. The economic growth and industrialization of Finland
