This paper presents results of an exploratory research that aimed at exploring employees´ similarities and differences in work-related values in public, private and hybrid organizations in Brazil. Ninety-eight questionnaires were considered from employees (managerial and non-managerial level) of nineteen organizations of the three groups (public, private and hybrid). Drawing on Wittmer (1991) and Tamayo & Gondim (1996), the research privileged items related to for categories of workrelated values: i) efficacy/efficiency; ii) management system; iii) respect towards employees, and iv) reward preferences. Analytical procedures consisted of distribution comparisons using one-way analysis of variance and Kruskal-Wallis nonparametric test. Except for two items related to management system (hierarchy and professionalism), no significant differences could be found among the three groups (at a 5% confidence level). Results relating to reward preferences were significantly different from Wittmer´s (1991) findings in the American context.
