Deviant behavior has always been a concern for employers because it is so widespread. Deviant behaviors include theft, vandalism, computer misuse, absenteeism, illicit drug use, sexual harassment and tardiness. Here are a few updates on workplace deviance (2019):
Questionnaires that identify job applicants who pose an employment risk have always been available, but they have now become a primary tool for pre-employment screening. The identification of job applicants who are likely to show disruptive or deviant behavior on the job is best accomplished by asking directly relevant statements about the applicant’s prior behavior, particularly their on-the-job behavior. The Step One Survey® is a brief integrity assessment that will help your organization hire people who do not show these deviant behaviors.
Step One Survey® provides information businesses can use to hire employees who are honest, reliable, and hardworking. It’s a solution that helps find the right people to contribute to a company’s success—not jeopardize its future. The Step One Survey measures an individual’s basic work-related values early in the candidate selection process. This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes towards theft—including the theft of property, data, and time.
In many organizations, the Step One Survey is the first screen that all applicants must pass before proceeding in the hiring process. By filtering candidates early in the process, this tool saves you time so that you can focus on hiring the right candidates that fuel the success of your organization.
Step One Survey helps you:
While pen and paper options are available, hiring managers administer the survey by sharing an online link with each candidate. From there, the candidate takes the online survey on their own. Once the candidate finishes the survey, the hiring manager immediately receives a notification and can view the results.
