Abstract

Introduction: Organizational climate is a key factor in employee performance and satisfaction. In this study, the validity and reliability of an organizational climate scale in agroindustrial companies in Peru was examined. Objective: To analyze the psychometric properties of an organizational climate scale adapted to Peruvian Spanish. Methods: A methodological study was carried out. Demographic data were collected, as well as responses to an organizational climate questionnaire. Results: The data were analyzed using confirmatory factorial analysis (CFA). The reliability of the instrument was high (α = 0.92). However, the factor loadings of several items were not adequate, so a unidimensional model was tested, then a model with adequate factor loadings, and finally an optimal model. In this last 9-item model, the fit was optimal, and the factor loading was adequate for all items. Conclusion: Overall, the organizational climate scale demonstrated good reliability and validity in this context of agroindustrial companies in Peru. However, some items needed to be revised to improve the scale's accuracy. These findings provide a valuable tool for measuring the organizational climate in these types of companies and pave the way for future research in this field.
