SPONTON, Carlos et al. Validation of the engagement Questionnaire UWES for the population of workers of Córdoba, Argentina. liber. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.2, pp.147-154. ISSN 1729-4827.

Engagement is a construct which is theoretically opposite to Burnout and which denotes a person’s experience of wellbeing that results from a highly positive connection with their job. The objective of the present work was to carry out a validation of the Engagement questionnaire UWES for the population of workers of Córdoba, Argentina (N=674). The preliminary psychometric results are satisfactory; optimal and acceptable values of internal consistency were found (values of á ranging between, 69 and, 90) and contrasted group studies were coherent with previous investigations. However, exploratory and confirmatory factorial analysis studies suggest that both models with 2 and 3 factors are plausible. Finally, the theoretical and practical implications of this work are discussed.
