Abstract

This paper is a re-examination of Kovach's (1995) previous study, conducted three different times in 1946, 1981, and 1995, on employee and manager perceptions of job reward factors. The research was designed to investigate if any changes have occurred since Kovach's last work and also to see if the economy, gender, and generation affiliation have impacted answers. A survey collecting both quantitative and qualitative data were distributed to individuals both in management and non-management positions. The survey results were used to test four hypotheses. The results did not yield statistically significant results to verify three out of the four hypotheses. However, this could be due to the size of the participant sample.
