Work-Related Basic Need Satisfaction Scale: Analysis Of Construct Validity And Reliability in Turkish

Cumali URİ [1]


The purpose of this study is to explore the validity and reliability of the day level work-related basic need satisfaction scale in Turkish. Data was collected from a sample of 397 individuals working for different companies at private sector in Turkey. Results of the exploratory factor analysis have revealed that three factor solution has explained 78.9% of the total variance. In line to this, confirmatory factor analysis supported the three factor structure (χ2 / df = 1.70; p <.05; RMSEA=.04; SRMR=.03; CFI = .99; TLI = .99) for this Turkish speaking sample. Moreover, Cronbach’s alpha coefficients of the scales (need for autonomy, need for competence, and need for relatedness) ranged from .84 to .90. In conclusion, findings from this study have disclosed that scales which measure work related basic need satisfaction components are valid and reliable in Turkish.
