Occupational Work Ethic Differences: Implications for Organizational Diversity Initiatives in Health Care Organizations
Kegans, Loyd
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v22 n3 p83-94 2009
This study was conducted to examine the extent of work value differences among ethnic classifications of baccalaureate nursing students. Major findings revealed significant differences between ethnic classifications and work ethic behaviors. Contrasts resulting from post-hoc tests indicated that Asian nursing students reported significantly lower scores of work ethic behavior when compared to African American, Caucasian, and Hispanic students. These differences remain unexplained due to low effect sizes. (Contains 4 tables.)
