Predicting Counterproductive Work Behavior Using Pre-Employment Tests
Predicting counterproductive work behavior has become very important to organizations. Covert, or personality-based pre-employment integrity tests are commonly used as a means of pre-screening employees. Using these tests, employers can infer not only how well one might perform on the job but how much one might engage in specific workplace behaviors, including counterproductive work behavior (CWB). CWB costs employers billions of dollars in lost productivity on an annual basis and research shows that integrity tests can be used to predict CWB. As such, using an integrity test to help screen for CWB can be a valuable addition to your selection system that could lead to reduced costs and increased productivity.
