Editorial Reviews


"Highly recommAnded for the theorist, the empirical investigator, and the student in occupational behavioral science. It is the best treatise on this topic that this reviewer has seen."

"A comprehensive and critical summary of the morass of studies about why people work."

From the Inside Flap

Why do people choose the careers they do? What factors cause people to be satisfied with their work? No single work did more to make concepts like motive, goal incentive, and attitude part of the workplace vocabulary.This landmark work, originally published in 1964, integrates the work of hundreds of researchers in individual workplace behavior to explain choice of work, job satisfaction, and job performance. Includes an extensive new introduction that highlights and updates his model for current organization behavior educators and students, as well as professionals who must extract the highest levels of productivity from today's "downsized" workforces.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By David Tripp on September 16, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I included this in the literature review portion of my research project on retention and turnover. I enjoyed it so much after borrowing from the library and reading it that I had to have a copy for myself. Vroom does have some valid criticism of Herzberg's conclusions regarding hygiene versus motivation and the two-factor theory, but some is unfounded and even in err. But, in general, this is an outstanding treatment on work and motivation. A classic!
