Abstract

The quality of work life (QWL) has a close relationship with the labor activities performed by the worker; it impacts their physical and mental health, their social life, their behavior and performance. Correlate the QWL scores with socio-demographic variables of professionals in nursing that work at Material and Sterilization Center area (MSC)of a Medical school in the State of Minas Gerais. Cross-sectional, quantitative, descriptive and analytical study. Through interviews were applied: The Socio-demographic Questionnaire (LINO, 1999) and the scale Quality of Life at Work (TIMOSSI, 2009). For exploratory analysis all the data had been analyzed throughthe program "Statistical Package for the Social Science" (SPSS) version 21.0. It was used the Cronbach's alphaα as coefficient in order to test the reliability of the QWL instrument. For correlation between the QWL scores and the quantitative socio-demographic variables it was applied the Spearman correlation test. 40 employees had participated in the study. The QWL instrument indicated that more than 50% of the employees were satisfied. The domain of "Social integration" obtained a result of 70.15%. The domain "Use of skills" was the one that obtained the highest median in satisfaction, 72.76%. The domain "Opportunities" obtained the lowest median presented 61.10%. The values of α>0.70 indicate good reliability of the instrument for the sample. The income was correlated in a significant way (p < 0.05), moderate and positive way (r = 0.356) with the domain "Fair and Adequate Compensation"; and the income was correlated in moderate and negative way (r =-0.402) with the "Work and Life". The results show that variables as remuneration and fair and adequate compensation have relationships with psychometric variables of workers, such as quality of life, satisfactions and professional motivation. Aside, these results can help health institutions realize management strategies for workers.
