Abstract

Studies have conceptualized work involvement as a multidimensional construct. However
researchers have so far provided inconclusive agreement on the dimensionality of this latent
factor. Therefore, a re-conceptualization of work involvement scale is crucial due to the
inconsistencies in the measure of this construct. This study attempts to examine the construct
validity of the work involvement measure by using a Malay-translated version of the instrument.
A priori proposition was made that work involvement is a single-dimensional construct. This
means that work involvement measurement can be represented by a single factor consisting of
five items. SPSS version 14 and AMOS 16 were used to analyze the data. The findings supported
the single-dimensionality of work involvement factor based on the results from exploratory and
confirmatory factor analyses. The research results also showed acceptable internal consistency
reliability for the work involvement factor, which suggested the utility of the five-item work
involvement measure in the Malaysian context.
