To conduct validation and dimensionality analyses for an existing measure of the integration of worksite health protection and health promotion approaches.
A survey of small to medium size employers located in the U.S. was conducted between October 2013 and March 2014 (N=115). A survey of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) administrative parents was also conducted from June to July 2014 (N=140). Exploratory Factor Analysis was used to determine the dimensionality of the Integration Score in each sample.
Using Exploratory Factor Analysis, both samples indicated the presence of one unified factor. The VA survey indicated that customization improves the relevance of the Integration Score for different types of organizations.
The Integration Score is a valid index for assessing the integration of worksite health protection and health promotion approaches and is customizable based on industry.
The Integration Score may be used as a single metric for assessing the integration of worksite health protection and health promotion approaches in differing work contexts.
