Generations of Talent Study Archival Version

DOI

The Generations of Talent Study sought to examine several dimensions of quality of employment as experienced by today's multigenerational workforces. The primary goal was to explore how country-related factors and age-related factors affect employees' perceptions of quality of employment. Information was gathered from employees working in 11 different countries including the United States, United Kingdom, China, India, Spain, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, South Africa, and Botswana. The industry sectors included technology, pharmaceuticals, consulting, energy, and finance. Demographic variables included gender, birth year, race/ethnicity, education, marital status, number of children, hourly wage, salary, and household income. No weight variables were provided. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Standardized missing values.. Presence of Common Scales: Most measures included were adapted and/or abridged due to space constraints; such as Hofstede's (2001) attitude survey measures; Karasek's (1985) job characteristics measures; Mor Barak and Cherin's (1998) inclusion measures; and Mowday, Steers, & Porter's (1979) organizational commitment measure. Response Rates: 14.6 percent Employees in large multinational corporations Smallest Geographic Unit: country Each employer chose the sites that it wanted to participate in the survey, as described in the documentation. Almost all sites used either a random sample or a population sample. There were two exceptions: Pharma2 Brazil (as identified in the dataset) excluded manufacturing employees from their sample, while Pharrma2 Spain preidentified 60 percent of sales and remote workers and 40 percent of office employees for inclusion in the survey. computer-assisted self interview (CASI)Data producers did not include weight variables because the variables needed to create weights could be used to identify the sites, and because of the limited value of these weights to most analyses (which would weight the dataset to the site demographics, rather than country demographics).
