The Survey of Perceived Organizational Support (SPOS)

The Survey of Perceived Organizational Support (SPOS) is a one-dimensional measure of the general belief held by an employee that the organization is committed to him or her, values their continued membership, and is generally concerned about their well-being. The SPOS refers to the employers perception of how valuable their employee is. An organization is a place of socioemotional resources. Respect, caring, wages and medical benefits are all part of an empoyer such as respect and caring, and tangible benefits, such as wages and medical benefits.
