A Qualitative Research on Zambian Work Values: A Theoretical overview from an Intrinsic and Extrinsic Point of View across Generations
This paper aims to explore and elaborate on Zambian work values, of which a mixture in traditional and western values has been the focal point of the daily life of Zambians. This paper will use qualitative research methods and empirical observations from participants to shade more light on Zambian work values. This paper also aims to highlight on the intrinsic and extrinsic values that encompass work values. Twenty Zambian employees at different companies in different sectors were interviewed to build findings on this construct. Questions on intrinsic work values and extrinsic work values were asked to them in interview style for them to shade more light to which category they thought they inclined to and their justification of such a way of being. After which they were administered a work value questionnaire, for more brief and confined answers. Both the questionnaires and the data from the interview responses were used to draw conclusions.
Key words: Work values, culture, intrinsic, extrinsic, generations.
