Work Ethic and Values in HRD. Symposium.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on work ethic and values in human resource development (HRD). "Value Priorities of HRD Scholars and Practitioners" (Reid Bates, Hsin Chih Chen, Tim Hatcher) presents the results of a study that identified and analyzed six HRD values reflecting two value facets (locus of HRD influence and HRD outcomes) and a seventh value reflecting a perceived normative component in all HRD activity. "The Development of a Research Instrument to Compare Working Values across Different Cultures Based on Hofstede's VSM (Value Survey Module) Questionnaire" (Salwa Yousef Al-Sharqawi, Sally Anne Sambrook) discusses an exploratory research approach used to adapt Hofstede's Value Survey Module for use in a doctoral research project examining work values in public and private banks in Kuwait and replicating Hofstede's study of cultural dimensions. "An Examination of the Viability of the Work Ethic Construct" (Sharon S. Naquin, Elwood F. Holton) examines the protestant work ethic (PWE) literature and presents an exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis of leading composite measures of PWE constructs. "Cost Analysis of E-Learning: A Case Study of a University Program" (Tim L. Wentling, Ji-Hye Park) examines cost drivers of e-learning programs and analyzes the University of Illinois' online human resource education program. All four papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
