Approbation of the Russian Version of Self-Perceived Employability Scale

2021. Vol. 18. No. 4. P. 664–684 [issue contents]
The paper presents the results of approbation of the Russian Version of the Self-Perceived Employability Scale. 715 employees completed the Russian version of the SPE Scale. Research on the representative Russian sample revealed good consistency and test-retest reliability of the SPE Scale (the correlation ranged from 0.56 to 0.72), confirming the factor structure, validity, and reliability of the psychodiagnostic tool. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFI) supported the factor structure of the SPE Scale. The CFI results are following: x2  = 77.577, df = 29, CMIN/DF 2.675, p = 0.000, GFI = 0.944, AGF = 0.893, CFI = 0.847, RMSEA = 0.057 [90% CI 0.042–0.072], PCLOSE = 0.216, HOELTER = 285. The consistency of the subscales is as follows: the internal self-perceived employability (alpha reliability coefficients, a = 0.642), the self-va­lu­ation outside current organization (a = 0.595), the perceived value of the occupation outside the current organization (a = 0.761). The results on convergent and discriminant validity of the scale are confirmed by the correlation analysis, which shows a high score of all subscales of the SPE Scale with a sense of success in professional activities (ranging from 0.442 to 0.288 for the perceived value of the occupation outside current organization, p < 0.01), the calm and balance (from 0.308), the active problem-solving strategy (0.385, p < 0.01), the level of professional aspirations (0.395, p < 0.01), the sense of the social environment support (0.300, p < 0.01). The pursuit of excellence and the subjective value of the activity demonstrates a significant correlation with the internal self-perceived employability (0.364, p < 0.01), but not the external self-perceived employability. All subscales, especially the internal self-perceived employability are negatively correlated with job insecurity (-0.499, p < 0.01). According to the results of our approbation, the Self-Perceived Employ­ability Scale can be considered a reliable and valid psychodiagnostic tool in Russia.
