Background & Theory
Thomas Engage (originally the Work Engagement Questionnaire) was developed by Mark Slaski at the University of Hertfordshire in 2009.
Statistical factor analyses were conducted to identify the underlying seven areas of engagement being measured by the questionnaire; Voice, Togetherness, Challenge, Freedom, Clarity, Recognition and Growth.
The Thomas Engage questionnaire is formed of 28 statements. An individual must indicate their frequency of experience on a 1-7 Likert scale (1 being 'never' and 7 being 'always'). The 28 questions are followed by two pre-set questions with free-text responses. Individuals will be asked to confirm several demographic factors at the end of the questionnaire.
Reliability & Validity
Thomas Engage has an impressive internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha = .96) and very good construct validity. Structural equation modelling (SEM) suggested high construct validity of the final 7-factor model model, with each outcome variable able to explain a large amount of the variance in engagement.
