Workers’ happiness is a determining factor of their short- and long-term efficiency. Several scholars have attempted to develop happiness measurement frameworks. The present work analyzes the validity of a scale proposed by Del Junco, Espasandín, Dutschke, and Palacios (2013) in which factors determining worker happiness are elucidated and examined. The work provides a guide for validating scales using a structural and confirmatory approach on the basis of data derived from 262 companies in the province of Seville (Spain). The scale examines two dimensions—factors related to the job and factors related to
the worker—that confirm the need to combine both individual and environmental perspectives when analyzing worker happiness.
