Does your organisation rely on the integrity of its employees?

Do you need to know you can trust your people to act honestly and responsibly?


The Revelian Work Reliability Scale can help you hire people who have the right attitude towards counterproductive behaviours, such as:

  • Absenteeism (particularly around taking sick days when they’re not really sick)
  • Theft and fraud
  • Dishonest or deceptive behaviour.

Knowing that your team has high moral and ethical values is important for any business, but it’s particularly critical if your employees have direct access to your customers’ personal data or your company’s finances. You want to trust that your people will respect your customers’ privacy and treat your company’s funds honestly.

How can screening for work reliability improve my business?

Extensive research has shown that integrity tests can predict whether a potential employee might act unethically if hired. Revelian can enable you to screen for negative attitudes and help you hire people who have a strict attitude towards wrongdoing.


This ensures new employees are inherently less likely to:

  • Steal from your company
  • Take non-genuine sick leave
  • Commit white-collar crimes
  • Engage in inappropriate workplace behaviour
  • Turn a blind eye to co-workers engaging in such behaviour.

While all of these activities cost you money and productivity, in severe cases they mean you need to dismiss the employee and start the process of finding someone new all over again. And this is all in addition to the loss of revenue, reputation damage and myriad other consequences that can come from having just one bad egg in your organisation.


With all this in mind, it simply makes sense to use a work reliability assessment to add an extra layer of protection for your business.

How does the test work?

The Revelian Work Reliability Scale presents candidates with 54 statements and asks them to indicate the extent to which they agree or disagree with them. This assessment isn’t timed, but it typically takes around 10 minutes to complete.

How do I know candidates will respond honestly?

Of course, some candidates might be tempted to answer the questions in an overly positive way, in essence trying to tell the employer want the candidate thinks they want to hear.


Because of this, the assessment also includes 2 powerful built-in validity checks that actually analyse the pattern of responses. These checks look for:


  • Positive self-presentation: Whether the candidate has tried to present themselves in an overly positive light
  • Consistency: Whether the candidate has answered questions carefully and honestly throughout the assessment.

Our system will alert you if either of these checks indicate a potential problem, so you can decide on the steps you want to take next.

What results will I receive?

After your candidates have taken the Revelian Work Reliability Scale, you’ll receive a detailed yet easy-to-understand report for each candidate, as well as a report that ranks all of your candidates in order of suitability.


To make informed decisions about each candidate, you can also compare their results with up to three normative comparison groups*:

  • Your current workforce or a particular team
  • Employed adults in general
  • A particular management level (such as graduates)
  • A particular industry group (e.g. finance, engineering, resources).

The report can illustrate a person’s results against all three of these normative groups simultaneously, giving you a handy point of reference for identifying where your candidates sit on a variety of relevant spectrums.


*The full set of comparison groups is available through our Enterprise platform and ATS integrations. In Revelian Express, only the Employed Adults group is available.
