Abstract

This study reported on the development and initial validation of a multidimensional measure of employability based on Lo Presti & Pluviano (2016) theoretical model. Four different studies were designed and implemented. Study 1 was a qualitative study that involved a group of 15 labour market experts and aimed at developing the items’ pool. In Study 2, an exploratory factor analysis on 526 employees was carried out to examine the structure of the employability measure as previously obtained. Study 3 aimed at verifying the employability measure emerged from Study 2 through confirmatory factor analysis on 699 employees, resulting in a 28-item shortened version encompassing the original four employability dimensions. Finally, in Study 4 concurrent and predictive validity of the definitive version of the employability measure were tested on a sample of 712 employees. Implications for vocational guidance and human resource management, as well as future employability research, were discussed.
