    Cuestionario del Trabajo Decente: Elaboración y validación en dos muestras de trabajadores intelectuales
    2018-06 - Pais, Leonor; Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Moreira, José Manuel; Ferraro, Tânia
    Se propone un Cuestionario del Trabajo Decente como herramienta de medición basada en las percepciones de los trabajadores, cubriendo así un vacío de investigación: el análisis a escala individual. Los autores parten de los elementos fundamentales del Programa de Trabajo Decente de la OIT. La versión definitiva del cuestionario comprende 31 enunciados vinculados, mediante análisis factorial, a siete factores. Las pruebas de fiabilidad, validez convergente y validez discriminante arrojan buenos valores, por lo que el cuestionario podría abrir nuevas vías de investigación empírica sobre la base del concepto de trabajo decente.

    Decent work, work motivation and psychological capital: An empirical research
    2018-06-27 - Moreira, João Manuel; Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Sedmak, Clemens; Ferraro, Tânia
    BACKGROUND:The Decent Work (DW) concept, proposed by the International Labour Organization, can be enriched by the contributions of a Work, Organizational and Personnel Psychology (WOPP) perspective. Namely, it would be important to relate DW perceptions to the main concepts in the WOPP realm. Understanding these relations would expand our knowledge of the nomological network of the DW concept and of its practical implications. OBJECTIVE:To analyze the relationships between DW, work motivation and psychological capital among knowledge workers in Portugal and Brazil. METHODS:The Decent Work Questionnaire (DWQ), a previously validated measure of 7 dimensions of DW from a WOPP perspective, the Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale (MWMS), and the Psychological Capital Questionnaire (PCQ) were administered to 2912 knowledge workers. Relations among concepts were analyzed by canonical correlation analyses and linear regression. RESULTS:The DW dimension Fulfilling and Productive Work was positively associated with intrinsic and identified work motivation, and negatively with amotivation. A second significant canonical variate related (negatively) Social Protection (DW dimension) to extrinsic material work motivation. Results from regression analysis support the idea that DW promotes psychological capital. CONCLUSIONS:Results suggest that DW is an important predictor of work motivation and psychological capital. Practical implications for human resources management are presented.

    The Decent Work Questionnaire: Psychometric properties of the Italian version
    2021-06 - Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Pais, Leonor; Zappalà, Salvatore; Moreira, João Manuel; Ferraro, Tânia
    Decent work is an integrative concept that may account for several labor-related issues. It represents the defence and promotion of human rights at work and business and the fulfilling and productive work maintained with social dialogue. Previous studies developed the Decent Work Questionnaire (Ferraro, Pais, dos Santos, et al., 2018) based on International Labor Organization propositions and workers' perceptions. The paper reports the adaptation and validation of its Italian version in a high-skilled workers sample (N = 1,465). Confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the original version's structural dimensions and good internal consistency reliability. Convergent and discriminant validity, tested using work engagement and personal burnout scales, were supported by the data. Therefore, the DWQ Italian version appears to yield reliable and valid data as a Decent Work measure in Italian workplaces.

    Decent Work and Work Motivation in Knowledge Workers: the Mediating Role of Psychological Capital
    2018 - Pais, Leonor; Moreira, João Manuel; Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Ferraro, Tânia
    This article aimed to investigate the role of Decent Work as a predictor of different types of Work Motivation and to explore the possible role of Psychological Capital in mediating this relationship. The Decent Work Questionnaire, the Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale, and the Psychological Capital Questionnaire were administered to 3004 knowledge workers, in Portugal and Brazil. Results from Structural Equation Modeling analyses support the hypothesized model, showing the predictor role of Decent Work and complete and partial mediation effects of PsyCap in different relationships between DW and Work motivation variables. The results also support the idea that a decent work context predicts more autonomous work motivations again with the mediation of PsyCap. In sum, the results suggest that decent work plays an important role in promoting a positive approach to work, and that Psychological Capital is an important mediating variable in the promotion of autonomous Work motivation. Limitations and practical implications conclude the article.

    The multidimensional work motivation scale: Psychometric studies in Portugal and Brazil
    2022-04-09 - Santos, Nuno Rebelo Dos; Mónico, Lisete; Pais, Leonor; Gagné, Marylène; Forest, Jacques; Cabral, Patrícia Martins Fagundes; Ferraro, Tânia
    Purpose The purpose of this study is to present validation evidence of a Portuguese version of the Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale, an instrument within the framework of the Self-Determination Theory, suitable for both Brazil and Portugal. Design/methodology/approach The current study demonstrates the suitability of this version in both Portugal (N = 999) and Brazil (N = 720). The authors applied confirmatory factor analyses (CFA) and tested the invariance between samples. Findings Results from CFA found the same structural dimensions as in the original study, invariant across both samples. Convergent and discriminant validity were shown through correlations between motivation subscales with affective commitment and emotional exhaustion. Originality/value Overall, the data provided strong evidence for the reliability and validity of the Portuguese version of the scale and reinforces the instrument as a cross-culturally valid measure of work motivation.

    Decent work, positivity, and the satisfaction with life of Portuguese lawyers: An empirical study
    2023-07-07 - Mudric, Ecaterina; Ferraro, Tânia
    The present study aimed to investigate the associations between Decent Work (DW) and the Positivity and Life Satisfaction of Portuguese lawyers (N = 84). The Decent Work Questionnaire, the Positivity Scale and the Satisfaction With Life Scale were applied. The multiple regression linear analysis showed that: Fulfilling and productive work was an important antecedent of the Positivity, and that Fulfilling and productive work, Meaningful remuneration for the exercise of citizenship and Opportunities were antecedents of Satisfaction With Life. Then, the analysis of canonical correlations showed that six DW dimensions (exception for Social protection) were significant and positively related to Positivity and Satisfaction With Life. The perception of Decent Work is relevant to promoting Positivity and Satisfaction With Life for Portuguese lawyers. Limitations, practical implications, and future development prospects are presented in the final section.

    Empowering leadership questionnaire: Brazilian adaptation and validation
    2023-06-16 - Lott, Ana Cristina de Oliveira; Ferraro, Tânia
    Purpose The present study aims to present the adaptation and validation of the empowering leadership questionnaire (ELQ) for a sample of Brazilian workers (N = 827). Design/methodology/approach The procedures of items translation, adaptation and back-translation of the original instrument were carried out. Data collection was performed using the snowball method. Data were evaluated with confirmatory factor analysis. Findings The results showed that the factor structure was maintained as in the portuguese (from Portugal) and English versions (original). Convergent validity was tested using the ethical leadership at work questionnaire (ELW). The analyses showed that the measure has good psychometric qualities, reliability indices and convergent validity results with the ELW. Research limitations/implications The ELQ can still be used to identify the presence of empowering leadership (diagnostic phase) and contribute to proposing organizational interventions that lead to healthier and more productive work environments. Its convergent validity with ethical leadership suggests that managers can apply both (empowering and ethical leadership complementarily) to create quality interactions between leaders and team members that increase workers’ autonomy and allow them to respond promptly to organizational challenges. Originality/value Using the ELQ can represent an important tool for the theoretical and practical development of studies of empowering leadership with Brazilian samples.

    Historical landmarks of decent work
    2016 - Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Pais, Leonor; Mónico, Lisete; Ferraro, Tânia
    Structured Abstract Purpose: this article systemizes the main historical milestones which led to the current concept of decent work and presents some implications for business. Approach: after presenting the scenario which gives a special meaning and importance to decent work, the historical landmarks are systematized until the definition of the Decent Work Agenda. Findings: Decent work is a concept that has evolved since the ILO Foundation in 1919 and had several important steps throughout its development: Philadelphia Declaration in 1944, ILO constitution update in 1946, Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, Human Development Report, first edition in 1990, World Summit for Social Development in 1995, ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work in 1998, World Economic Forum in 1999, Global Compact in 2000, United Nations Millennium Declaration in 2000, ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization in 2008, Global Jobs Compact in 2009, and inclusion in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Throughout this development we can witness the refinement and operationalization of the concept, its institutionalization and its spread at political level, at least as an intention. Practical implications: the business area is a privileged forum to turn policies into practices and some examples are provided. Value: although decent work emerged in a very different social and economic scenario from the present time, it is claimed to be even more topical and relevant for the development of business and society today.

    Élaboration et validation d'un questionnaire sur le travail décent
    2018-06 - Pais, Leonor; Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Moreira, João Manuel; Ferraro, Tânia
    Les auteurs cherchent à élaborer un outil de mesure du travail décent reposant sur un questionnaire inédit axé sur les perceptions des travailleurs. Les items proposés se fondent sur les «éléments fondamentaux» du travail décent selon l'OIT. Une première version de soixante-douze items est administrée sur deux grands échantillons au Portugal et au Brésil. Les analyses factorielles exploratoire et confirmatoire menées sur cette base permettent d'isoler sept facteurs spécifiques et un facteur global du travail décent. Avec de bons coefficients de fiabilité et une bonne validité convergente et discriminante, le questionnaire proposé ouvre la voie à de nouvelles études empiriques dans le domaine.

    The perception of business ethics in the public and private sectors: A study of portuguese social representations
    2022-03-31 - Pais, Leonor; Mónico, Lisete; Sampaio, Bárbara; Gijón Francis, Álvaro; Santos, Nuno Rebelo dos; Ferraro, Tânia
    Over the years, people have become more aware of how companies influence their lives, communities, and the environment. This influence has led to a growing interest and a vast and distinct literature in business ethics. Despite the diversity of themes concerning business ethics, the literature concerning social representations of business ethics in public and private sectors is scarce. This article explores the differences and similarities of Portuguese social representation between two business sectors (public and private). A free evocations test was applied for that purpose, and the answers were analyzed using EVOC software. The results interpreted based on Abric’s theory of the central nucleus showed a central core organized around the concept of “respect” in the two business sectors and “responsibility,” “honesty,” “justice,” “code of conduct,” “confidentiality,” and “ethic” in the central core of the private sector.
