To determine whether the Social Role (SR) Scale of the Outcome Questionnaire (OQ) can predict work productivity.Methods:
Employees at Utah State Hospital completed the OQ and the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Scale (WPAI) once monthly for four months.Results:
The SR predicted the WPAI Presenteeism and Activity Impairment scales.Conclusions:
The SR can be used to estimate work productivity using tools like the Productivity Calculator. Specific relationships among measures and suggestions for future research are discussed.
