SORAGGI, Fernanda and PASCHOAL, Tatiane. Relations between work well-being, personal values and opportunities of achieving personal values at work. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 614-632. ISSN 1808-4281.
The objective of this study was to investigate the impact on work well-being of personal values and opportunities of achieving personal values at work of private organizations’ employees. Work well-being is defined as the predominance of positive emotions at work and as the perception of the person that, at work, expresses and develops his or her abilities and potentials and achieves his or her goals. Apparently, the possibility of the person to achieve important values at work is related with the work well-being. The most important results were that personal values by themselves are not predictors of work well-being. On the other hand, opportunities that express individual interests have direct and significant impact on the construct.
