Skala Satysfakcji z Pracy – Pomiar poznawczego aspektu ogólnego zadowolenia z pracy
A new concept of job satisfaction demands an independent measure of two components of job satisfaction (its emotional and cognitive aspects). A classification of techniques for assessing the cognitive aspect of job satisfaction is made and their usefulness for study of different topics is presented. The Satisfaction With Job Scale allows to measure the cognitive aspect of overall job satisfaction. The paper indicates the sources of construction of The Satisfaction With Job Scale. It comprises the technique description, its psychometric properties and validity scores in a heterogeneous group, as well as in four categories of job. The internal reliability of the scale is high – in the heterogeneous group Cronbach’s Alpha is 0,864 (in four groups: 0,814–0,888). The scale has a one-dimensional structure: Factor analysis (principal components) yields one component with eigenvalue exceeding unity which accounted 65,5% of the total variance in the whole group (in four groups: 58,5%–69,8%). The scale shows high convergent validity with other measure of cognitive aspect of job satisfaction and discriminant validity in relation to measures of emotional aspects of job satisfaction and to cognitive aspect of overall life satisfaction. The data show that The Satisfaction with Job Scale is a valuable instrument for measure of overall job satisfaction.
