Work values are global aspects of work that are important to a person’s job satisfaction. An assessment of the values a person considers important in a work setting is therefor essential. They are both intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic values have to do with the actual tasks involved in practicing a particular occupation or doing a job. Extrinsic ones are concerned with the by-products of an occupation or job. Examples of your intrinsic values could be helping others, doing challenging work and being a leader. Earning a lot of money, getting recognition for what you do and having job security are examples of extrinsic values.
