ABSTRACT
Objectives: The main aim of the presented study was to check the level of perceived dimensions of work according to Peter Warr’s model of wellbeing at work (referred to as the Vitamin Model). The main aim was to verify: a) the non-linear dependency of well-being and the first group of “vitamins” of the model; and b) the linear dependency for the second group of dimensions of work. Material and Methods: The article presents the results of research conducted in a Polish automotive production company. The Vitamin TAW Questionnaire was used to diagnose the dimensions of work. Well-being was measured using the Satisfaction With Job Scale. The analyzes were carried out on a group of 197 people who took part in the research and represented various departments of the organization. Results: The obtained results allow a partial confirmation of the non-linear relationship within the dimensions of the first group (for 3 out of 6 characteristics) and a full confirmation of the linear relationship for all dimensions from the second group. Conclusions: The recommendations arising from the research are universal in character and can be used by managers of various organizations. The results clearly demonstrate the need for reflection, and evidence-based and data driven changes in human resources management, and the creation of positive environment of work.
