WHAT IS THE WVA?

The WVA reports oﬀer insight that helps organizations decrease negative outcomes such as employee absenteeism, turnover, theft, fraud and violence, AND increase positive outcomes such as teamwork, employee engagement, productivity, customer satisfaction, proﬁtability, and more.
THE WVA IS DESIGNED TO ASSESS THE FOLLOWING ROLES
• Management Level or below
• Corporate roles
• Industrial roles
WHY ARE MORE EMPLOYERS USING WVA?
The WVA helps employers and managers understand how people will “ﬁt” to roles and corporate values and attitudes by providing a preview of an individual’s natural workstyle and default settings. The reports provide insights that lead to increases in positive outcomes such as retention, productivity and engagement, and decreases in negative outcomes such as turnover, management challenges, and poor organizational and culture ﬁt.
YOU CAN USE THE WVA:
• To identify and develop world-class talent for all levels of the organization
• To identify people who “live and breathe” the organization’s values and culture
• To reduce turnover rates and administrative costs associated with hiring wrong ﬁt employees
• To improve interview and onboarding processes
• To manage role changes, promotions and organizational change
• To reduce management challenges, employer-employee work dissatisfaction, and negative workplace morale
• To increase retention rates, productivity and employee engagement
• To reduce absenteeism, turnover, lost expertise, lost training resources and customer dissatisfaction
WHAT IS MEASURED
The WVA measures job-relevant characteristics which predict on-the-job behaviors. The results contain data on each person’s strengths and risks and helps predict behavior in these key areas:
• Positive Attitude
• Aggression Control
• Open Communication
HOW IT WORKS
The assessment can be taken online anywhere participants have internet access (eg. at home, at work, on client premises) on either a computer or mobile device via a web browser.
The assessment takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete but there is no time limit. Participants are instructed to answer assessment questions by following their ﬁrst impression rather than thinking too much about how to answer. There are no right or wrong answers, and there is no “pass” or “fail.” It’s all about understanding people better.
Reponses are automatically processed by TalentClick and a PDF report is generated then emailed to speciﬁed parties within 1 hour of survey completion. Reports can also be accessed by logging into our TalentClick assessment portal, using your own unique username and password.
The assessment is available in multiple languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian, Russian, Polish,
Chinese, Punjabi, Tagalog, and more currently in development.
The WVA construct validity was established through factor analysis and inter-scale correlations. The WVA validity has been established through research we have conducted with client organizations where we correlate actual performance rating for employees and their WVA assessment results.
Standards speciﬁed in the EEOC’s Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures were followed in developing the WVA to establish its validity and reliability to exceed acceptable levels.
The WVA is subject to an ongoing program of research to identify the relationship of its dimensions to important outcome measures, to continue to reﬁne item and scale content, reﬁne the normative database and demonstrate predictive validity.
