Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper was to explore the factor structure of the Inclusion Baselining Survey, an applied resource that measures aspects of inclusive culture in Australian workplaces. Design/methodology/approach – The Inclusion Baselining Survey was examined using exploratory factor analysis of archival data gathered from two organisations in maledominated industries. Organisation 1 (N=797) sampled employees working for a transport manufacturing and construction company. Data used in Organisation 2 (N=810) was gathered from employees the mining industry. Findings – Results provide strong evidence for a six-factor structure to the Inclusion Baselining Survey comprised of: stress, work-life balance, job satisfaction, supportive supervision, opportunity to make valued contributions and showing visible commitment. Originality/value – The factor structure of the Inclusion Baselining Survey has not previously been examined. This study represents an initial step towards validation of an Australian instrument for use in applied settings.
