Abstract

For some time, researchers have recognized the importance of the time dimension of work, as well as the temporal dimensions of norms and work processes. For example, in an organizational context, it has been suggested that norms about time can be viewed as characteristics of culture (Schriber, 1985). Researchers have shown how differences in organizational cultures can lead to different views and assumptions about time (Schein, 1983). Similarly, Schriber and Gutek (1987) pointed out that "time is a basic dimension of organizations," and that organizations and the people who work in them are influenced by how time is partitioned and scheduled.
