The objective of this study was to determine the psychometric properties of an employee attitude survey as developed by an Automotive Manufacturing Organization. The employee attitude survey consist of 55 items and was completed by a total of 306 employees employed at this specific organization. An exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was performed where only one factor loading resulted out of an anticipated thirteen. The inter-correlations were empirically investigated and indicated that all the items under a specific dimension did have a lot in common with one another. An anti-image inter-correlation was performed. All of the items indicated a satisfying measure of sampling adequacy (MSA) values at .595. The overall reliability of the employee attitude survey was satisfactory. These results suggested that the employee attitude survey is a handy tool for the goal the organization wants to use it for, but it does not differentiate between the thirteen different dimensions of attitude as hoped for.
