Zielinska, Katarzyna, Dehe, Benjamin and Papalexi, Marina (2016) Orientation to work: comparison between the British workforce and Polish migrant workers. In: 5th World Production and Operations Management Conference P&OM Havana 2016, 6-10 September 2016, Havana International Conference Centre. (Unpublished)

The aim of this study is to investigate the differences between Polish migrant workers and British labour in relation to their orientation to work. Using a sample of 128 employees in the industrial sector in the UK, we examined the orientation to work among the workforce. The results show a difference in orientation towards employment between the employees in the industrial sector, in the UK. Polish workers reveal characteristics of intrinsic orientation to work, while British employees reveal characteristics of instrumental orientation to work. Unexpectedly, the results suggest that individuals with intrinsic orientation to work expose higher need for recuperation.
