Work Values - Personal Values Test

The Work Values Assessment tests the personal values of the individual and the business. Values drive the accepted norms of a person and indicate the passions that motivate them. They are the internal driving force that engages people to actively contribute and participate in their work each day. The test takes only a few minutes to complete and the information it offers will be invaluable to both individual and business alike.

What Does the Personal Values Test Measure?

The Personal Values Test (PVP) assesses an individual’s values specific to the work context and match it according to a series of 21 pre-defined core values in the workplace or job. The analysis ranks values from most to least importance to the individual, providing leadership insight on the GAP with the alignment of the core values of the organisation.

The Benefit of Values In The Workplace

Values when fully integrated in the culture of an organisation can provide powerful insights into employee motivation. This insight becomes the compass that the organisation uses to select staff members, reward and recognise employee performance, and guide interaction among employees.

The work values assessment helps businesses to ensure their employees are properly matched with the job, improving staff retention.

Creating a Company Values Profile

The Corporate Values Profile (CVP)  is a companion to the Personal Values test. It looks at a specific core values list from the job or organisation’s perspective. Utilising the same workplace values as the personal values assessment, it ranks them from most to least important in relation to the requirements and expectations of the function, job, team or business domain.

Our Work Values Assessment Reports

Our reports look at all 21 personal values facets of the individual, offering the results in bar chart and wind rose formats. These show the facets marked as key motivators, minor motivators and potential demotivators.

The report tells managers, recruiters and consultants a lot about the individual, and the types of work roles they would be best suited for. Furthermore, it informs them on the best ways to manage that individual and keep them motivated and engaged within the role.
