Subjective well-being (SWB) is a concept associated with numerous positive outcomes in various domains of life, including work. Hence, it is an important subject of study in organizational psychology. The current study was conducted on a sample of 327 employees working for an international company whose field of work is development of high-tech solutions in traffic. It was a web-based questionnaire emailed by Human Resource professionals to the employees working in their local business units. The questionnaire was constructed as a self-report based on the PERMA framework, originating from positive psychology. PERMA posits that SWB is represented by five components: positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and achievement. The goal of the survey was to measure the overall SWB at the organizational level and to compare the SWB of different business units, countries and genders. The goal of our study was to explore the factor structure of the instrument and to evaluate its psychometric characteristics. The results of exploratory factor analysis have shown that the proposed factor structure was confirmed with an additional factor named positive regard appearing. The factor analysis suggested the existence of a general factor in the background of the scale. Factor analysis explained 59.02 % of variance.
