Abstract : Specific illustrations are presented to show that the worker seeks a degree of control over the physical demands and intrinsic satisfaction of task performance; authority, pay and security of positions; task competence and the mateship relation of persons. The extent to which the worker seeks control over additional benefits and promotion features of positions is limited by the kind of benefit under consideration, and the success ideology which characterize the lives of men at the lower levels of industrial administration.
