    Abstract

    WORLEY, Jody A.; FUQUA, Dale R.  and  HELLMAN, Chan M.. The survey of perceived organisational support: which measure should we use?. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.1, pp. 112-116. ISSN 2071-0763.

    The psychometric properties of the original 36-item Survey of Perceived Organisational Support (SPOS) was examined along with a variety of shorter versions currently in use (16 items, eight items and three items). Factor analysis of the original SPOS measure is supportive of the original finding that the SPOS is unidimensional. Correlations among factor scores and SPOS scale scores suggest that either the eight-item or 16-item version would be just as effective as the 36-item version but even more efficient. Convergent validity results also indicate similar proportions of variance in versions of SPOS scores accounted for by selected organisational variables.

    Keywords : organisational support; Survey of Perceived Organisational Support (SPOS); factor structure; employee perceptions; organisational behaviour.
