Work Preferences Profile

predict job fit and future satisfaction through work preferences

Match work preferences with job requirements.

Work preferences represent the extent to which an individual derives satisfaction from engaging in different tasks. For example, some people are more satisfied working outdoors, while others are happy to sit at a desk.

Research indicates that job satisfaction is directly influenced by the degree of match between individual vocational preferences and specific job requirements (i.e. job fit).

Hiring people whose work preferences match a job’s requirements can significantly:

Increase job satisfaction

Increase productivity

Decrease employee turnover


The Revelian Work Preferences Profile assesses individual work preferences across the following eight areas, encompassing tasks that occur across a broad scope of occupational roles:

QuantitativeWorking with numbers, data, and numerical concepts
InvestigativeProcesses of reasoning, research, and scientific enquiry
ClericalAdministrative responsibilities and clerical tasks
ManualPerforming work tasks with the hand
InterpersonalInvolvement and interaction with other people
Creative Innovation and creative / artistic expression
Selling Promotion or sales of products or services
Mobile Work performed outdoors, movement between places of work

People completing the Revelian Work Preferences Profile are asked to indicate their preference for one of two tasks in a series of questions. Analysis across all items is conducted to identify their job preferences.

Each individual’s job preferences are compared to a position profile, completed online by a supervisor or the position incumbent, and an overall match classification is calculated. The higher the percentage match, the more likely the individual will ‘fit’ the requirements of the job and be satisfied at work.
