THE EMERGING ATTITUDES AND MOTIVATION OF WORKERS

A clear conclusion to be drawn from the experts' meeting is that if managements are prepared to innovate, to invest as freely in new methods of work as they commonly do in new technology, much can fruitfully be done through wider use of the kind of methods discussed by the experts' meeting to meet the problems of changing workers' attitudes and to provide constructive motivation. The purpose of the group of management experts assembled by OECO to discuss the emerging attitudes and motivations of workpeople in general was not, of course, to analyse the historical causes of this revolution; it was merely to illustrate it in terms of the policies that managements will need to discuss, and perhaps to adopt, in order to accommodate the profound changes that are taking place.
