DEVELOPMENT OF A SURVEY INSTRUMENT FOR MEASURING THE PERCEPTIONS AND ATTITUDES OF THE MANAGERS OF SAUDI PUBLIC ORGANISATIONS ON THE BENEFITS OF SAUDI LABOUR RIGHTS AND LAWS
Authors: Saad Saud Almutairi
Abstract: The procedure adopted for development of a survey instrument to measure the perceptions and attitudes of Saudi managers on the benefits laws has been described in this paper. The commonly adopted procedure of determining the scales and items for the survey was followed. The context-specific requirements were considered in determining the items to be included in the two scales. The full questionnaire contained relevant demographic items, eight items each for perceptions and attitudes measurement and a final open question for whatever the survey participants wished to say about the topic of survey. A pilot trial was done using the developed survey instrument to measure perceptions and attitudes of Saudi public sector managers on the benefits enjoyed by their workforce due to favourable labour laws. The results showed both perceptions and attitudes of managers to be positive. The results were explained in a number of different ways with the support of literature. Some limitations of this research, as scope for further research, have also been listed.
