Rocznik: 2017 Tom: 23 Numer: 2
The problem discussed in this study is the issue of subjective quality of life of the unemployed and persons performing work in various forms of organization, place and time. The main focus of the research lies on the relationship between quality of life and deprivation of latent and manifest benefits of work according to Marie Jahoda and David Fryer theories. Latent and manifest benefits were measured with Polish adaptation of the LAMB scale, developed for the purpose of this study. Other examined variables are: resiliency (tested with ‘Skala Rezyliencji’ – the Polish version of Ego Resiliency Scale ER89) and sociodemographic variables, including: gender, age, education. The study tested if the variables correlate with each other and how they affect the perceived quality of life among unemployed. Examined group consisted of 194 people. Statistical analysis showed that all the latent functions of work in particular social status and social contacts are important for the unemployed and affect their quality of life. Resilience is also an important moderator of the quality of life of the unemployed. Comparing groups with different job and place organization status has shown that not every workplace is a good source of experiencing latent functions of work.
