Quick Reference

Job characteristics other than financial. These include hours and working conditions, holidays, training provision, opportunities for promotion, location of the workplace in a pleasant area, and a congenial boss and fellow workers. These are contrasted with purely financial conditions, including pay and bonuses, pension rights, free or subsidized medical insurance, and assistance with house purchase. Some job characteristics have a financial value which is difficult to measure explicitly, such as job security, provision of childcare facilities, or training which improves a worker's outside job opportunities.
