The present study aims at providing evidence about the psychometric proprieties of a new self-report measure named "Integrated tool of organizational well-being (SIVBO)". The SIVBO is based on the job demands-resources model (JD-R, Demerouti et al., 2001) and is aimed at measuring organizational well-being. A total of 754 participants were involved from different organizational contexts. They answered a self-report questionnaire containing the SIVBO and other measures. The exploratory factor analysis highlighted a factorial solution composed by a total of 18 items, underlying four dimensions labeled job demands, job re-sources, relational job resources, and personal resources. The confirmatory factor analysis proved that the four-factor model, with a second-order factor labeled organizational well-being, is the one showing the better fit to the data. The internal consistency indexes (Cronbach’s alpha, Spearman’s rho correlation and composite reliability) of SIVBO were sat-isfactory. Concurrent and discriminant validity were assessed using correlation and regression analyses. The SIVBO is an agile tool with adequate psychometric properties that, due also to its shortness, can be eligible for the measurement of organizational well-being across a variety of work contexts.
