WECT Project Measures – Coworker Survey
The coworker survey invitations were sent out in week 5. The coworker survey took approximately one hour to complete and respondents were given a $15 gift card to an online retailer as appreciation for their participation.
The survey began with a demographic questionnaire.
The next set of questions asked respondents about the coworker who invited them to participate in the study.
Respondents indicated how long and how well they knew the person they were rating, and the nature of their relationship with this person (e.g., colleague, supervisor, etc.).
Then, respondents completed observer-report versions of the GASP, HEXACO-60, CWB-C-32, and OCB-C-20 (references below). The order in which these scales were presented and the order of the items within each scale were randomized for each participant.
After the respondents completed the observer-report measures, they completed a job description questionnaire that included assessments of:
- Job title, job description and duties, job start date
- Number of hours worked (past week and typically)
- Organization size
- Work group size
- Number of people supervised
- Whether there is a formal ethics code that is enforced
- Organizational fusion (pictorial fusion item adapted from Swann, Gomez, Seyle, Morales, & Huici, 2009)

- Organizational descriptors (bipolar adjective pairs)
- Intention to turnover (looked for new job during past week, will look in next year)
- In the final section, respondents completed self-report versions of the GASP, HEXACO-60, CWB-C-32, and OCB-C-20 (references below). The CWB and OCB scales assessed behaviors committed during the past month. The order in which these scales were presented and the order of the items within each scale were randomized for each participant.
- Comments: The survey ended with an open-ended question asking whether they had any questions or comments about the research project.
The coworker survey contained observer-reports and self-reports of these scales. The order in which these scales were presented and the order of the items within each scale were randomized for each participant.
