Self-assessment and Preferred Characteristics of the Superior
Purpose: This study aims to achieve objectives concerning the identification of preferred, characteristics of the superior, identification of the most important, from the point of view of educated contenders to the labour market, determinant of taking up a job and assessment of interdependence of the above characteristics and preferences. Approach/Methodology/Design: The model of exploratory factor analysis (EFA), often used in social research, is the method to achieve research objectives. The method allows to detect hidden relationships, and relations between subsets of observable variables. Its main effect is the reduction of redundant variables, i.e., those that describe the whole phenomenon to a small extent. Linear combinations of observable variables form the so-called factors. In this study it was assumed that the factors are independent, so EFA orthogonal rotation varimax with Kaiser criterion was used. Findings: The employee's commitment is also stimulated by the charisma and consistency of the superior. Although modesty and forbearance are important from the point of view of the respondents, they are actually a destimulant (negative features of the superior) negatively influencing the involvement of the future employee. Practical Implications: We can point out the importance of paying attention to two key characteristics, such as involvement and satisfaction. It is important to carry out the research with particular attention paid to the characteristics of engagement and satisfaction. These characteristics can be further specified in order to obtain more accurate results. Originality/Value: So far, in the literature, discussing the technological evolution in the recording industry, we have focused on either block chain technology or intelligent contracts. In this paper we combine these two elements, which definitely complement each other. Further research efforts are needed to examine in more detail the feasibility and relevance of our recommendations.
