Little research exists on the work needs and expectations of employees in the Irish Voluntary Sector. The paper presents the preliminary findings of the first nation-wide
survey of voluntary organisations, focusing on the psycho-social variables underpinning work. The survey employed the Meaning Of Working (MOW)questionnaire, widely used in European work-values research. Results from the 259
respondent voluntary organisations are compared with a private sector population, and indicate significant differences in employee work values, reward expectations
and job involvement. The results are discussed and implications for the management and development of the Irish Voluntary Sector are advanced.
