NAVARRO, José; YEPES, Montserrat; AYALA, C. Yarid y QUIJANO, Santiago D. de. An Integrated Model of Work Motivation Applied in a Multicultural Sample. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.3, pp.177-190. ISSN 1576-5962.
An integrated model of work motivation was tested in a multicultural sample by analyzing the construct and convergent validity of the measurement tools included in the HSA-Mot model. This model integrates within a relationship network a number of key motivational constructs that operate on different levels: needs, instrumentality, self-efficacy, equity and critical psychological states (knowledge of results, responsibility and meaningfulness). Two cross-sectional studies were conducted. The first concerned four different samples of employees from Chile, Spain, the United Kingdom and Portugal. The construct validity of the measurement tools was studied by means of a CFA. The second study, involving a sample of Mexican workers, analyzed the convergence between the motivational measures proposed by the integrated model and other measures of motivation. The results of both studies were positive and revealed high fit indices between the data and the proposed theoretical model (values above .90 and residuals below .08), as well as high convergence with the other measures used (correlations above .6). The HSA-Mot model shows correct index of validity in its measurement tools and, more importantly, provides key information for tailoring interventions once low levels of motivation have been detected.
