This report summarizes a series of exploratory studies relating to worker-oriented job variables. These variables include worker behaviors in jobs and certain job context variables situational and environmental that have relevance to human work, as contrasted with job-oriented variables that deal more with the technological aspects of jobs. It is postulated that human work can be characterized in terms of either type of variable. However, for purposes of establishing common denominators across jobs of varied technological types, one must describe jobs more in terms of human behaviors and related variables what are referred to here as worker-oriented variables.
