Wonderlic Productivity Index®

Is your candidate likely to become a productive, low-risk employee?

This employee reliability test is based on three core personality dimensions that have strong implications for employee productivity: Conscientiousness, Stability and Agreeableness.

Areas evaluated include:

  • Overall Personal Productivity
  • Work Effort and Persistence
  • Service and Support
  • Counterproductive Work Behavior
  • Turnover
  • Scores in the Moderate or Poor range for any scale automatically generate structured interview questions as part of the results report.

This reliability test is useful when candidates have little to no prior work experience, and will have access to company equipment, cash and merchandise, and perform their jobs with little direct supervision.
