2012,Volume 7, Issue 3 TE Jayr Figueiredo de Oliveira D Technology and Unemployment for Executives in Hospitals Abstract A C This study aims to investigate how managers of health care institutions explain the causes of unemployment, and how this explanation is related to their personal and family values, in accordance with Schwartz’s theoretical model.
For that, we used two questionnaires: one analyzes the explanations for unemployment, and the other one is the Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ 21 – short version).
Employed and formerly unemployed workers do not show any significant differences in explaining the causes of unemployment.
On the other hand, regarding values, formerly unemployed workers show universalism and benevolence, values related to the self-transcendence dimension.
Employed workers, in turn, show values of security, related to the conservatism dimension.
