Value Orientation, Organizational Rewards, and Job Satisfaction.
Cascio, Wayne F.
The nationwide sales force (N=540) of a large food and beverage firm responded to a mail survey designed to investigate the role of value orientation as a moderator of the relationship between organizational rewards and job satisfaction. Of the two main elements in the investigation, the first was concerned with the predictive efficiency of two different measures (one ipsative and one normative) of intrinsic-extrinsic orientation, and the second was an empirical test of some predictions from the Lawler-Porter model, using the orientation measures which were derived from the first part of the study. Results indicated that the normative instrument (Survey of Work Values) was most predictive of both intrinsic and extrinsic value orientation. (AG)
