In this article we investigated the reliability and validity of the Dutch version of the Core Self-evaluations scale (CSES, Judge, Erez, Bono & Thoresen, 2003). Research into the English version has shown that CSE is a valid construct, consistently correlating with important work related criteria such as work satisfaction and work performance. Because of the relevance of these findings, we developed a Dutch version of this scale (NCSES). Results from four different studies (total N = 1389) showed that the NCSES is internally consistent, has a high test-retest reliability and has the predicted factor structure. Additionally, the convergent and divergent validity of the NCSES are high, and the NCSES correlates with important work outcomes, such job characteristics, job performance, and affective outcomes. It can be concluded that the NCSES is a valuable and effective instrument for applied psychological research.
