The aim of this research was to determine work values of workers who work in the manufacturing industry and analyze the relationship between work values and personality traits. Employees (N=208) completed the 85-item Five Factor Multi-Dimensional Personality Scale (Tatar, 2005), the Work Values Inventory, which was based on Super's Work Values Inventory (1969) and Wu, Lee, Liu and Os' Inventory (1996) and a demographic questionnaire. Results of this study revealed that there is a moderate level relationship between personality characteristics and work values. The results of hierarchical regression analysis indicated that conscientious and emotionally stable manufacturing industry employees give importance to intrinsic work values; agreeable and emotionally stable ones give importance to extrinsic work values. In addition, the results showed that intrinsic work values are important for white collar employees and extrinsic work values are important for blue collar ones.
