The Quality of Work Life in the Federal Bureaucracy: Conceptualization and Measurement

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper uses a dimensionalization approach to explore the complex meaning of the quality of work life in the federal bureaucracy. Based on the 1979-80 Federal Employees Attitudes Survey, five distinct dimensions are delineated: supervision, relations with co-workers, job task, relations among work groups and economic well-being. The policy implications of the findings are briefly discussed.
