Abstract

Our research work aims to evaluate the possible use of the questionnaire on the experience and evaluation of work (QEEW; van Veldhoven & Meijman, 1994) in Italian work contexts. The QEEW was modeled to evaluate a) job demands and job resources, to collect relevant information on the amount of exposure to environmental and psychological job characteristics; b) outcome measures, such as job enjoyment and need for recovery. The QEEW is wide used in north Europe to test a theoretical model useful to understand the workers wellbeing (the job demands-resources model, Bakker, van Veldhoven and Xanthopoulou, 2010).The research was conducted in 3 different work contexts (public hospital, public schools and private companies) for a total amount of 512 subjects. Findings, obtained by multiple regression analysis, suggests a good consistency of the scales and, in general, that the QEEW can be very useful in order to evaluate the organizational climate.
