Abstract: The long-range purpose of this study was to clarify the variables associated with work effort in order to provide baseline data for future investigation of the linkages between work roles and family roles. The subjects were 477 middle managers from five organizational settings. Three of the organizations were industrial corporations and two of them were governmental agencies. The selection criteria were discussed with representatives from each institution and all employees complying with them were contacted. The data were collected by means of a questionnaire which was designed for the study. The dependent variable, work effort, was measured by the Lodahl and Kejner (1965) Job Involvement Scale.
