Absenteeism was explored from a social psychological
perspective. The purpose was to measure the absence cultures
(Nicholson and Johns, l9S5) of male and female employees
through the use of policy capturing (Hobson and Gibson, l9S3).
Absence was split into three dimensions: Personal Health, Stress
Relief, and Family Responsibility (Nicholson and Payne, l9S7).
One hundred and two employees of a large southeastern
university were used as subjects. They were asked to give their
own opinion and their opinion of their organization's view about
the inappropriateness/appropriateness of the absence behaviors
in the 27 policy capturing vignettes. They were also asked to
give their subjective weighting of how they used each dimension
to make their overall rating.
