MENDOZA SIERRA, M.ª Isabel; LEON JARIEGO, José Carlos; ORGAMBIDEZ RAMOS, Alejandro  and  BORREGO ALES, Yolanda. Validity Evidence of the Spanish Adaptation of the Organizational Empowerment Scale. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.1, pp.17-28. ISSN 1576-5962.

This paper presents validity evidences for the use of Spanish version of the Organizational Empowerment Scale (OES ) (Matthews, Diaz & Cole, 2003). The sample consisted of 305 employees from Spanish hotels. Reliability and factor structure (confirmatory factor analysis) of the scale were investigated. Results showed a multidimensional scale of three first-order factors, positive relations between organizational empowerment and job satisfaction and negative relations between organizational empowerment and burnout. Theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed and suggestions of further research are made.

Keywords : Empowerment; organizations; job satisfaction; burnout.
