Attitudes, Values & Job Satisfaction
Values represent basic convictions that a “specific mode of conduct or end of state of existence is personally or socially preferable to an opposite or converse mode of conduct or end-state of existence.”
Values contain a judgemental element because they carry an individual’s ideas about what is right, good, or desirable. They have both content and intensity attributes. The content attribute says a mode of conduct or end-state of existence is important. The intensity attribute specifies how important it is.
Values tend to be relatively stable and enduring.
Value System is a hierarchy based on ranking of an individual’s values in terms of their intensity.
