Rocznik: 2002 Tom: 8 Numer: 2
The article presents the results of investigation that aimed to answer the question if the position taken up in a firm has an influence on one's self-image. It was assumed hypothetically that the higher the position in the establishment, the more positive the self-image of the worker. To verify this hypothesis, three grades of positions in the establishment were distinguished: I productive (workers), II administrative (clerks), III executive (managers). The study was conducted in four companies. The sample was composed of 30persons employed as workers, 30–clerks and 30managers. All subjects were asked to fulfill a questionnaire and with its help to appraise their own mental, intellectual, social, vocational predispositions and also the degree of acceptance by others in work environment. The results of these investigations have confirmed the hypothesis in part. The most positive self-estimation but not of all aspects was presented by managers. The next group of employees, productive workers, estimated their image positively. The most critical opinion about their status was shown by administrative workers (clerks).
