This article aims to analyze the psychometric properties of the Russian version of the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES-9) using a sample of 1,783 Russian employees.Confirmative Factor Analysis showed that both the 1-factor and the 3-factor models of the UWES-9 fit well with the data, but the 3-factor model demonstrates a significantly better fit. However, the differences are minor so that the Russian version of the UWES-9 can be used both as a three-scale measurement and as a single scale of work engagement. The results also suggested convergent, discriminant, and incremental validity of the UWES-9, as shown by its relationship with burnout, job satisfaction, life satisfaction, and turnover intention. The article also discusses the differences in levels of work engagement within different gender and age groups. Overall, the results show that the Russian version of the UWES-9 demonstrates acceptable psychometric properties comparable with the original version and those in other languages. The Russian version of the UWES-9 can therefore be recommended for use in research and practice (read more).
