Abstract:

A modified version of the Michigan organizational assessment questionnaire was administered to 496 Navy civilian employees at two industrial activities. The questionnaire was designed to assess demographics, general attitudes, job facets, task and role characteristics, work group functioning, supervisory behavior, pay, organizational characteristics, and physical characteristics of the work space. A total of 34 factor-based scales were contructed and then combined into 5 composite scales that measured intrinsic job satisfaction, supervision, interpersonal climate, organizational climate, and pay-habitability satisfaction. These scales can be used as a reliable and valid way to assess organizational functioning and quality of work life.
