Abstract

Recent research has highlighted several job characteristics salient to employee well-being and behavior for which there are no adequate generally applicable measures. These include timing and method control, monitoring and problem-solving demand, and production responsibility. In this article, an attempt to develop measures of these constructs provided encouraging results. Confirmatory factor analyses applied to data from two samples of shop-floor employees showed a consistent fit to a common five-factor measurement model. Scales corresponding to each of the dimensions showed satisfactory internal and test-retest reliabilities. As expected, the scales also discriminated between employees in different jobs and employees working with contrasting technologies.
