Abstract

Despite notable interest within government and amongst employers over intuitive gains from addressing quality of working life (QoWL), little is known of the set of variables that constitute the primary influences on employee orientations and behaviour. Insight in this area is essential if employers are to invest in the right areas and reap claimed benefits such as reduced absence, enhanced employee commitment, lower labour turnover, and more. This paper reports on findings form the HSE survey of employee perspectives on QoWL, 2010/11 (N = 1770). An exploratory principal components analysis revealed a stable eight factor structure, accounting for x% of the total variance. An examination of the potential for developing the identified constructs into psychometric scales revealed internal consistency coefficients in the range x - y. The scope for developing a Management-standards type measure, that would allow employers to benchmark their performance, highlight agendas for change and monitor intervention impact is discussed.
