Should I Hire or Promote This Person?

The Workplace Attitudes Test results are very straight forward and easy to understand. Any single score that is 70 or above is a warning signal for that particular attitude. 

In addition we provide a cumulative score, based on a formula using the highest three scores, to look at the overall likelihood of problem behavior. The higher the score, the greater the likelihood of potential problems. Cumulative scores in the 70's are serious. Cumulative scores in the 80's and 90's suggest a red light, i.e. stop.

Workplace Attitudes Test™ Results

The cumulative warning score for this individual is 74

 

 

The nine attitudes relate to disruption in the workplace and scores of 70 or above (70 is shown as the red line in the chart) may indicate potential problems. Our research suggests that these attitudes help determine behavior toward customers, clients, fellow workers, supervisors, and work in general.

We also calculate a cumulative warning score, shown above the chart, that is based on a formula using the top three scores. A cumulative score of 70 or above should be of concern. See "Workplace Attitudes Test - Overall Interpretation" sheet at the bottom of the page for more information on interpreting scores.

The score for each attitude in the chart is as follows:      

Judgmental

85

Vindictive

45

Adversarial

60

Egocentric

10

Entitled

30

Undisciplined

5

Insubordinate

20

Risk-Inclined

5

Non-Traditional

15

Workplace Attitudes Test - Overall Interpretation

It has been said that people are hired for their qualifications and fired for their attitudes. If you pay careful attention to warning signals, you are unlikely to make a mistake in hiring. Here is the scoring key.

Low                   0 to 29

Moderate         30 to 69

 High               70 to 100

The bar chart shows nine attitudes related to disruption in the workplace and scores of 70 or above indicate potential problems. Our research suggests that these attitudes help determine behavior towards customers, clients, fellow workers, supervisors, and work in general.  

High warning signals suggest a propensity for confrontation meaning that the respondent may have difficulty getting along with others in the work environment. Low or moderate warning signals suggest the opposite and the respondent will likely be sensitive to the needs of others in a work environment.  

If there is only one high warning signal, this should be discussed in greater detail with the applicant. If you are satisfied with the explanations, you may still want to work with this person. Note that low warning signals tend to mitigate a single high score.  

When looking at work-related attitudes it is important to understand your own work environment. For example, a formal organization may desire an employee who is low on "risk-inclined." An informal organization may desire an employee who is low on "undisciplined" so the person can work in teams and without much supervision.  

Some organizations may prefer a certain combination of attitudes. For example, law enforcement may expect high on "judgmental" but it should be coupled with moderate or low on "egocentric." Remember that you are looking for a good match for your organization. Overall, pay careful attention to high warning-signals.  

The Workplace Attitudes test should be used in conjunction with good interviewing techniques and other good practices related to hiring and promoting. There are no warranties or guarantees, and there are none implied.
