The Work Cognition Inventory: Initial Evidence of Construct Validity
Nimon, Kim; Zigarmi, Drea; Houson, Dobie; Witt, David; Diehl, Jim
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v22 n1 p7-35 Spr 2011
Contemporary literature lacks a comprehensive set of constructs that provides for understanding both the organizational and job factors that influence employee work passion. Through a detailed analysis of literature, this research identifies eight constructs that form the basis for the appraisal of an employee's work experience with the use of both a job and an organizational focus. This article reports on the development and validation of a new instrument (Work Cognition Inventory) that measures the identified constructs. Data from three studies provide initial evidence of construct validity, discriminant validity, and convergent validity. Implications for the human resource development practitioner and future research are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
