Comment allez-vous? How are you doing? как поживаешь? Extension de la validité de l'échelle positive de mesure du bien-être au travail (EPBET)

Abstract : This paper aims to test the metrical qualities of a positive well-being at work scale (EPBET) when it is used outside its environment of creation. Structural invariance is preserved when countries are similar in regard of culture, purchasing power and political stability. Thus, results reveal that the EPBET scale assesses the same construct in United States and in France. Conversely, in Ukraine, where the national culture is much more collectivist, wealth is lower and the political institutions was particularly instable during the study, one of its dimension-relation to social times-cannot be distinguished. This evidence confirms the contingency character of well-being at work. We propose an explanation using the social comparison theory. Results also suggest that the demonstration of the external validity of the measure is an imperative requirement in international studies dedicated to well-being at work.
