Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, April 24, 1973 Like to retain self-respect, dignity Canadian workers want more than money RICIIAKU ANCU Canadian 1'ress Staff Writer "Today's worker wants more than money. He wants to be freed from the dehumanizing el- fecl of technology. He wants a job whir-h allows him to retain his self-respect and individual dignity." This finding by two American sociologists is the kind that is spurring Canadian behavioral scientists into a widening study of how to diagnose and improve the quality of work life in Cana- dian society. Debating the work ethic, or work for work's sake, is almost irrelevant as evidence grows that job dissatisfaction is be- coming a disturbing byproduct of advanced industrial societies. Symptoms of worker alien- ation production, poor quality, high absenteeism and turnover rates, wildcat strikes and sabotage. Job de- signs have lagged behind enormous increases in educa tional attainment of the work force, become more routine and leaving less to the imagination and control of the worker. URGE UNDERSTANDING Researchers at Toronto's York University have suggested' that, as a beginning, manage- ment'improve understanding of how the work environment af- fects employees' job attitudes and sense of well-being. "Improve your employees' quality of life for fun and says a study by James Goodale and Douglas Hall, so- cial psychologists, and Michael Alexander, a chartered accoun- tant. They say there are measur- able criteria to determine how any corporate decision or change affects employees to get at improvements in efficiency, higher productivity, reduced costs and increased profits. "It is in management's best interests, in financial as well as social terms, to know more than it does now about the im- pact of the work environment upon the the study says. Too often, a corporation does not have "a language to listen" to the reactions and needs of workers. Managers recognize an employee response only when he resigns, "turns off" or fails to show up for work. "At this stage the dasr.age has been done. It is too late." What is it that motivates a person to come to work, appear on time, work hard and do high- quality work? The York study says behav- ioral science has identified a person's perceptions and eval- uation of his work environment as powerful motivators. Job move away from job specialization by expanding the responsibility and variety of a person's change that per- ception in many ways. For example, could make him feel the company is treat-, ing him as a thinking human, not a machine. More responsi- bility could make the job more interesting and challenging. Less supervision could improve interaction with co-workers. Black general WASHINGTON (AP) MflJ.- Gen.
