Validating the organizational climate measure prevent java from updating
This paper describes the development and validation of a multidimensional measure of organizational climate, the Organizational Climate Measure (OCM), based upon Quinn and Rohrbaugh's Competing Values model.A sample of 6869 employees across 55 manufacturing organizations completed the questionnaire.The measures developed from this study may be used in future research to better understand the impact of climate for safe food handling on organization food safety outcomes.Ungku Fatimah Ungku Zainal Abidin, Susan Arendt and Catherine Strohbehn.The measure offers researchers a relatively comprehensive and flexible approach to the assessment of organizational members' experience and promises applied and theoretical benefits.The 17 scales contained within the measure had acceptable levels of reliability and were factorially distinct.Concurrent validity was measured by correlating employees' ratings with managers' and interviewers' descriptions of managerial practices and organizational characteristics.
To date, little information is available regarding the role of organizational climate on workers’ safe food handling practices in the foodservice sector.
Even less is known about research attempting to establish the measures of organizational climate for safe food handling practices.
Predictive validity was established using measures of productivity and innovation.
The OCM also discriminated effectively between organizations, demonstrating good discriminant validity.
The revised measures will be incorporated into a survey and tested using a sample of employees from both commercial and noncommercial foodservice organizations located in the state of Iowa.Cluster sampling technique will be employed for selecting the sample.
