Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the validity of Dobrow and Tosti-Kharas’ (2011) Calling Scale (CS) and the generalizability of previous findings about calling and work-related outcomes in Italy. In the first study, the Italian version of the CS was validated. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses supported unidimensionality, and the measurement model was found to be invariant across gender and partially invariant across calling domains. Scale scores were found to possess adequate internal con-sistency and convergent validity. Study 2 supported the hypotheses that experiencing work as a calling relates to job satisfaction, life satisfaction, and turnover intention, and that these relations are mediated by career commitment. These results support the validity of inferences drawn from the Italian version of the CS and generalize some critical propositions of the work as calling theory to an Italian sample
