Employee motivation – a critical success factor for companies
Selecting the right fit in terms of corporate values and motivation structure is a key challenge in the recruitment process. Employee motivation is also important in development. Motivation analysis offers a starting point from which an employee’s performance and competencies can be developed further. This is particularly relevant in situations in which the employee acts in a spontaneous and subconscious way, or where there is a strong correlation between the professional role and an individual’s personal values.
The views questionnaire can help you efficiently and reliably identify the motives and values of your employees and applicants.
Adaptive testing to allow short questionnaires
views uses the adalloc™ adaptive measurement technology developed by cut-e. This technology allows a highly sophisticated profile of personal values to be created with a very short questionnaire.
