The Job Motivation Scale was developed in 1992 for purposes of a broad organizational climate research. It consists of 15 basic job motives, which an individual must rank two times. With the first ranking he/she describes the job as it is now, with the second ranking the desired job is described. The second ranking reveals associate's job motivation and the difference between the present job and the desired job reveals areas of (un)satisfaction. Each of job motives in the scale is verbally carefully expressed (I had some problems in translating to English). The job motives are:

labor conditions

comfortable job

promotion opportunities



relations with associates

taking part in decisions

employment security

development of expertise

freedom at work

job reputation

creative job

job safety

immediate superior

interesting job

Each item is expressed so, that the associate is asked how important for him/her is good salary, good labor conditions etc.
