The work-related values are important to understand the organizational members' behavior. Because they lay the foundation for understanding of attitudes and motivation. This study aims at developing and empirically testing a comprehensive model of work-related values. The study seeks to understand the relationship between work-related values and job performance. A questionnaire survey method is adopted to collect the data for this study. Correlations and moderated regression analysis are used to verify the proposed hypotheses. Pride in work, job involvement, and activity preference are correlated positively with job satisfaction and organization commitment. The attitude toward earnings and social status of job are negatively correlated with job satisfaction and organization commitment. But upward striving is positively correlated with organization commitment.
