Find out how Much it Means to Me! The Importance of Interpersonal Respect in Work Values Compared to Perceived Organizational Practices
AbstractTwo large online surveys were conducted among employees in Germany to explore the importance employees and organizations place on aspects of interpersonal respect in relation to other work values. The first study (N = 589) extracted a general ranking of work values, showing that employees rate issues of respect involving supervisors particularly high. The second study (N = 318) replicated the previous value ranking. Additionally, it is shown that the value priorities indicated by employees do not always match their perceptions of actual organizational practices. Particularly interpersonal respect issues that involve employeesâ€™ supervisors diverge strongly negative. Consequences and potentials for change in organizations are discussed.
