Further Details
Abstract The Czech population attaches great importance to work in their lives, both as a source of income & as a sphere in which to realize their human potential. A factor analysis of work aspects identified three general factors in the aspects of work: an 'instrumental & trade-off' factor (good pay & good job security; generous holidays, good working hours & not too much pressure; pleasant people to work with & good working conditions); a 'social factor' (an interesting, useful job, responsible job, & respected job & meeting interesting people); & a 'self-fulfillment' factor (chances for promotion, possibility of achievement, opportunity to use initiative, opportunity to use one's abilities). The importance attached to individual work aspects differs among members of individual social classes, as well as between men & women within these classes.
