MORENO, Manuel Pando; BALTAZAR, Raquel González; BELTRAN, Carolina Aranda  and  NUNEZ, Fernanda Elizalde. Reliability and the Factorial Validity of the Instrument for Measuring Quality of Work Life “CVT-GOHISALO” (brief). Salud, Barranquilla [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.1, pp.68-75. ISSN 0120-5552.


To validate the questionnaire CVT-GOHISALO - short version for use in Ecuadorian workers.


Exploratory factor analysis of the questionnaire CVT-GOHISALO with a population of Ecuadorian workers.


The population was composed of 400 subjects who work in various labor shifts in the formal economy in Ecuador. The statistical analysis was based on the determination of the Cronbach's alpha coefficient, proportion of variance explained and eigen values of each item of the scale.


The Cronbach's α coefficient of the questionnaire in general was of 0.911. Individually, most of the 7 factors of the questionnaire obtained satisfactory values; the ones that present a Cronbach's alpha coefficient below 0.7 were, "Integration to the job", which qualifies as appropriate with deficits (α =0.6) and "Job reliability", which qualifies as inadequate (α =0.5).


It is possible to use the questionnaire CVT-GOHISALO - short version for the purposes of research and evaluation in firms in Ecuador.
