#6560 Career satisfaction and success depends upon finding work that matches your skills, interests, and personality. But it also heavily depends on finding work that meets your needs and fits your values.
In fact, value identification is a key factor in maintaining job satisfaction – workers with jobs that don’t meet their needs or match their values experience greater stress and less motivation. They represent over half of all workers in America today.
The Work Motivation Scale helps people to explore their needs and values – the key things that motivate them to not only do their work, but to find fulfillment through it. Test takers rate 32 brief statements about what motivates them. Statements are then scored for 8 work values and included in one of 4 motivation levels. Based on their results, test takers can focus their career exploration or re-evaluate their current career situation and make more informed decisions.
The assessment itself is color-coded, easy to read, takes less than 15 minutes to complete and score, and is useful for any job seeker.
