Abstract

This study aims to investigate the validity and reliability of the Organizational Inclusion Scale in the Turkish literature. Organizational inclusion is described as the optimal degree of balancing an individual’s group / organizational identification with the need to be distinctive from the others in the literature.  The translation-back translation methodology was utilized to determine the congruency of the Turkish form. The outcome of the reliability test yielded the Cronbach alpha coefficient of the study as α= 0.924. The result of the critical factor analysis of the Turkish form indicates a two-factor structure with factor loading varying from 45,63% to 27,79%, inconsistent with the original scale developed by Sabharwal (2014). After that, the scale was retested conducting a confirmatory factor analysis utilizing structural equation modeling and tested with AMOS 22 and Smart PLS. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis of the two-factor structure indicate the Turkish form of Organizational Inclusion scale is suitable for assessing individuals’ perception of organizational inclusion in the Turkish context.
