FERREIRA, Paula Andréa Prata; FREITAS, Clarissa Pinto Pizarro de; DEVOTTO, Rita Pimenta de  and  DAMASIO, Bruno Figueiredo. Evidence of Validity of the Indicator for Characteristics of the Organizational Environment Scale (ICOES). Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.3, pp. 1141-1149. ISSN 1984-6657.

The evidence of validity of the Indicators for Characteristics of the Organizational Environment Scale (ICOES) in the long (35 items) and short (25 items) versions were evaluated for the Brazilian context. The survey consisted of two samples, the first being 1,325 professionals (63.8%, female), with an average age of 39.9 years (SD = 11.9). The second sample was composed of 559 professionals (55.1% female) with an average age of 43.5 years (SD = 12). Confirmatory factor analysis showed that the first-order seven-factor solution is adequate for both versions of the ICOES. Occupational self-efficacy, work engagement, and meaning of the work showed positive relationships with job resources, and negative with demand. The results suggest the use of ICOES-25 to the detriment of ICOES-35, due to the superior adjustment indices of ICOES-25, as well as the brevity of the scale.

Keywords : working conditions; factor analysis; occupational stress.
