Empirical relationships have been found between climate variables andindices of organisational performance such as innovation, employeeabsenteeism and turnover.
The ICQ incorporates thirteen scales. These are
- positive relationships
- shared view
- pay recognition
- work recognition
Withthe exception of 'stress', higher scores on each scale relate to morefavourable organisational outcomes, including lower turnover intention,increased job satisfaction and greater organisational commitment. Over1500 respondents from U.K. and other European organisations havecompleted the ICQ, which is now in its third revision.
