What is the OSI-R?

The Occupational Stress Inventory-Revised (OSI-R) is a 30-minute leadership assessment that measures three domains of occupational adjustment – occupational stress, psychological strain, and coping resources. For each of these dimensions, scales measure specific attributes of the environment or individual that represent important characteristics of occupational adjustment. 

The OSI-R Scales

The OSI-R yields scores on 14 different scales:

Who Should Use the OSI-R?

  • HR professionals looking to implement a measure of occupational adjustment as part of employee placement, succession planning, or leadership development and coaching programs
  • Researchers and practitioners who would like to measure occupational stress in employees to better understand how it affects performance, work behaviors, attitudes, turnover, and absenteeism
  • Research on the behavioral correlates of health risk factors

Why Should I Use the OSI-R?

CONVENIENT. This occupational stress questionnaire can be administered in 30 minutes on SIGMA’s online platform – SigmaTesting.com. Reports are generated immediately. Results are presented using graphs, numbers, and occupational stress scale descriptions.

WIDELY APPLICABLE. This occupational stress test was normed on more than 900 adults in 130 different occupations. Revisions include new and revised items, and norms for gender and specific occupational categories (i.e., executive, professional, technical, administrative support, public service/safety, and agricultural/production/laborer).

RELIABLE AND VALID. The coefficient alphas for the OSI-R total questionnaire scores were 0.88 for ORQ, 0.93 for PSQ, and 0.89 for PRQ. The OSI-R coefficients are compared to those of the original OSI. Convergent validity studies, factor analyses, correlational studies of the relationships of the scales to variables of practical and theoretical importance, studies of the stress, strain, and coping models employing comparisons of selected criterion groups are all reported in the manual.
