Resumo


A orientação para o trabalho refere-se ao propósito que o trabalho serve na vida de cada indivíduo e acarreta grandes implicações, quer para os indivíduos, quer para as organizações. O presente estudo teve, então, como objetivo a criação e estudo psicométrico de um questionário de orientação para o trabalho. Para tal, realizou-se um estudo qualitativo que contou com 9 participantes e teve como o propósito a criação do questionário. Na sua versão final este questionário conta com 38 itens divididos por três escalas independentes, Chamamento, Carreira e Emprego. O estudo psicométrico, por sua vez, contou com 747 respondentes, 433 do sexo feminino e 307 do sexo masculino, com uma média de idades de 40.38 anos (DP=9.58), distribuído por diferentes setores e áreas de atividade. Os resultados permitiram confirmar a estrutura tri-fatorial do questionário bem como a unidimensionalidade das escalas, sendo que estas apresentam um valor elevado de ró de Dillon-Goldstein, nomeadamente .8702 para a escala de emprego, .8275 para a escala de carreira e .8903 para a escala de chamamento. Em suma, os resultados obtidos comprovam a existência de três dimensões independentes, carreira, emprego e chamamento, bem como a consistência interna e unidimensionalidade das escalas apresentadas.
