Objective: To determine whether the Social Role (SR) Scale of the Outcome Questionnaire (OQ) can predict work productivity.
Methods: Employees at Utah State Hospital completed the OQ and the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Scale (WPAI) once monthly for four months.
Results: The SR predicted the WPAI Presenteeism and Activity Impairment scales.
Conclusions: The SR can be used to estimate work productivity using tools like the Productivity Calculator. Specific relationships among measures and suggestions for future research are discussed.
