[en] This article reports on the validation of the Positive and Negative Occupational
States Inventory (PNOSI), a new tool for measuring positive and negative
occupational states. Three goals were defined: testing the structural validity
of the PNOSI, testing its stability, and testing its convergent and discriminant
validity with engagement, burnout, commitment, and workaholism. Data
were collected in seven different companies (more than 16,000 participants).
The factorial validity of the PNOSI was demonstrated using covariance
structure analyses. A two-factor model with a negative occupational state
factor and a positive occupational state factor fitted the data better than an
alternative one-factor model. The two corresponding scales demonstrated
good internal consistency. The results confirmed that positive and negative
occupational states are distinct constructs and should be measured with different
items. Convergent and discriminant validity with related constructs,
such as engagement, burnout, commitment, and workaholism, were also
demonstrated. The conclusion is that the PNOSI has good psychometric
