dc.description.abstract Self -report measures of adult attachment style predict organizational behaviors . Traditionally , self -report instruments used in organizational settings measure adult attachment style in regard to romantic relationship targets . This study reports the psychometric validation of a measure for assessing adult attachment style in regard to close working relationships . The Workplace Relationships Inventory was modeled on the Experiences in Close Relationships scale and designed to be utilized in workplace environments . It was hypothesized that the Workplace Relationships Inventory has a two -dimensional structure like the Experiences in Close Relationships scale comprised of attachment -related anxiety and avoidance . From 2008 -2010 , over 500 students in organizational behavior classes were administered the Workplace Relationships Inventory along with existing measures of adult attachment style . Factor analysis of the Workplace Relationship Inventory items did not support the proposed two -factor solution . Statistically , four factors provided the best fit for the data . Conceptually , there is much to recommend two major factors coinciding with the proposed anxiety and avoidance dimensions of the scale . The Workplace Relationships Inventory demonstrated good internal consistency reliability , and convergent and divergent validity with comparative self -report measures of adult attachment style . Revisions to the Workplace Relationships Inventory are proposed . en
