Operationalization
Intrinsic and extrinsic work orientations are included in the EVS by a battery of questions on how people judge the importance of a particular job aspect as derived from Kalleberg (1977).

The score 1 is assigned when a job aspect was viewed as important and the score 0 when it was not mentioned. The work orientations index was created, representing the average score over the intrinsic and extrinsic work orientations scales.
