CARDOSO, Hugo Ferrari  and  BAPTISTA, Makilim Nunes. Escala de suporte laboral: correlation with social support, stress, and organizational support. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.4, pp. 374-383. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study sought to demonstrate validity, based on the relationship with external variables, for the Escala de Suporte Laboral (ESUL), and identify the predictive variables for organizational support. The sample consisted of 312 college students with professional activities who responded to four instruments (ESUL, the Questionário de Suporte Social - SSQ, the Questionário de Percepção de Suporte Organizacional - QPSO, and the Escala de Vulnerabilidade ao Estresse no Trabalho - EVENT). From the results, the ESUL was positively correlated with the SSQ and the QPSO and negatively correlated with the EVENT. As for the regression analysis, the QPSO dimensions 1, 2, and 3 formed the model for further explanation of organizational support measured by the ESUL. The study demonstrated the validity of the scale in question and suggested further studies to search for other psychometric parameters for the ESUL.

Keywords : Organizational support; psychological evaluation; evidence of validity.
