Satisfaction With Work Schedule Flexibility scale


This measure,(Satisfaction With Work Schedule Flexibility) developed by Rothausen (1994), uses a five-item scale to measure employee satisfaction with work schedule flexibility. It measures the extent to which an employee feels he or she has flexibility in scheduling work, in doing part-time or flextime work, and in balancing work and family responsibilities.


In Aryee, Luk, and Stone (1998), coefficient alpha was .79.


Satisfaction with schedule flexibility correlated positively with organiza­ tional commitment and supervisor work-family support. Satisfaction with flexibility correlated negatively with turnover intentions (Aryee et al., 1998).
