image of Building engagement and healthy organisations

The main aim of the project was to investigate the predictors of positive work-related states and attitudes, e.g. work engagement, meaning at work and personal growth, and healthy organisations. A questionnaire on these positive factors at work were pilot-tested through a data collection in chosen companies in Norway and Sweden. The results of these studies were used as a base for a preliminary validation of the Nordic Questionnaire on Positive Organisational Psychology (N-POP) published in this report. It is concluded that the N-POP constitutes a reliable and valid instrument. The concluding summary suggests that the concepts of work environment, health and productivity do indeed seem able to flow together to reach an optimal point at which well-being at the individual level is coexistent with efficient and productive work organisations.

Conclusion

In the present report we have presented results for the reliability and validity of a new Nordic questionnaire on Positive Organisational Psychology – N-POP. The analyses indicate that the N-POP has satisfactory reliability and construct validity. The questionnaire contributes a new perspective on organisational psychology as it is anchored within the research traditions of positive organisational psychology, which emphasises that work must be considered a creative activity that, potentially, contributes to enhancing well-being and personal growth. Finally, the results of the analyses lend credibility to the notion of organisational health as the concepts of work environment, health and productivity indeed do seem to flow together to an optimal point at which well-being at the individual level is coexistent with an efficient and productive work organisation.
