The honesty or integrity of candidates can be tested via pre-employment screening. RightPeople's Work Risk and Ethics Profile targets theft, aggression, dishonesty, and absenteeism.
Research demonstrates that integrity tests predict counterproductive workplace behaviour.
Ones, Viswesvaran & Schmidt (1993) report:
“Integrity test validities are substantial for predicting job performance and counterproductive behaviors on the job, such as theft, disciplinary problems, and absenteeism.”
Viswesvaran & Ones (1997) state:
“Organizations that use well developed and researched integrity tests are likely to have substantial utility gains that result from increased productivity and decreased delinquent behaviours on the job.”
In recruitment, the Work Risk and Ethics Profile addresses:
- Reduced absenteeism (e.g. non genuine sick leave)
- Confidential information leakage
- Reduced involuntary turnover
- Bullying and overly aggressive behaviour
Prevent hiring mistakes and consider implementing the Work Risk and Ethics Profile today.
