The purpose of the study was twofold: (1) to reassess the
model of Dispositional Employability (DE) proposed by Fugate
and Kinicki (2008) in the Croatian economic context, and (2)
to validate a new measure of DE through testing its
discriminant and incremental validity in relation to core self-
-evaluations (CSE). A Croatian version of the DE scale was
constructed based on a qualitative study and applied to a
heterogeneous sample of 966 Croatian employees. In
addition, we measured CSE, as well as four criterion variables:
subjective career success, general job satisfaction, relative
income and perceived employability. A CFA was performed to
test whether the measures of DE and CSE were assessing two
distinct dimensions. The results are in line with the hypothesis
of the discriminant validity of the constructs. Moreover, results
of hierarchical regression analyses showed that DE accounted
for additional variance of subjective career success, job
satisfaction and perceived employability above and beyond
control variables and CSE. These findings indicate which
psycho-social characteristics make people employable in
different economic contexts and provide empirical support for
the validity of a new DE scale. In the end, we discuss
limitations, contributions and suggestions for future research.
