Values at Workplace
 
 
The values at work place may be defined as the perception of what is preferable from among the alternative modes of conduct or end states with respect to one’s work. Work values are expected to be an integral part a nation’s cultural system and hence we notice differences between the work values of American organizations and Japanese organizations. They represent the values internalized by members of the society through the process of socialization. In global organizations, now-a-days, it is becoming difficult to achieve congruence between the diverse values of employees and those of the organization.
 
While defining managerial values, Indian executives mentioned work ethics, commitment, self-motivation, integrity, hard work, character etc. It is reported in a study that the most important goals of an ethical Indian manager are customer satisfaction, achievement of organizational goals within scheduled time, employee motivation and career progress. According to Upadhyay, Indian managers are status and power oriented and considers decision making as their prerogative and consultation as a means of eroding their authority. They tend to take credit for work done by them rather than share it with individual members of the team. It may be noted that while values are stable and enduring, they are not rigid. Therefore, new generations of employees may bring into the organizations new set of values.
 
In some of the studies age has been found to be a major factor in differentiating employee val¬ues. Young employees give importance to more autonomy at work place, instant gratification, quick growth, individualism, and openness compared to older employees.
 
As a result, young employees bring a different set of values to the work place. Hence, management should understand those new values and accordingly deal with them for good performance. Managers have to study values because they are the foundations for understanding a person’s attitudes, perceptions, motivation and behaviour in the organization.
