Psychometric properties of the Russian version of the Dutch Work Addiction Scale (DUWAS)

2016. Vol. 6. No. 3. P. 22–37 [issue contents]
Purpose. This article aims to analyze the psychometric properties of the Russian version of the Dutch Work Addiction Scale (DUWAS) by using the sample from a large Russian organization. The scale based on the definition of workaholism by two components: working excessively and working compulsively. Methodology. A series of CFAs testing the factorial validity of the Russian version of the DUWAS were conducted. A multi-group CFA tested the factorial structure and configural, metric, scalar, factor variance, factor covariance, and factor means invariances of the model across gender groups. Findings. Results provided evidence about factorial validity. The fit of two-factor model is clearly superior to that of one-factor model. A multi-group CFA shows invariance and robustness of the factorial structure across gender groups. The convergent and discriminant validity of the Russian version of DUWAS was investigated by studying its relationship with owerwork and work engagement, jobsatisfaction, and life satisfaction. Results suggest convergent and discriminant validity of the DUWAS. Internal consistencies of the working excessively and working compulsively sub-scales are acceptable.The article also discusses the relationship between workaholism and demographic characteristics. Conclusion. There were no substantial relationships between workaholism and age, gender, and levelof position (manager/non-manager). Overall, the results show that the Russian version of the DUWAS demonstrates acceptable psychometric properties comparable with the original version and those inother languages. Value of the results. The Russian version DUWAS was first published in this article.The measure can be recommended for use for scientific purposes. The Russian version of DUWAS can therefore be recommended for use in scientific research.
