The Workplace Personality Inventory-II assessment is aligned to the work styles taxonomy included in O*NET. Therefore, recruiters can refer to O*NET descriptions to determine work styles requirements for a wide range of occupations, and then easily measure candidates’ level of fit for the job.

The assessment also provides a development report that will help new hires with their own self-awareness and can guide their direct managers to support them effectively— particularly during the first 90 days on the job.

From the candidate’s experience perspective, the Workplace Personality Inventory-II offers high face validity as the items are work-related and work relevant.
