Hi Keith:
            It's not a 1:1 comparison, but we have worked with Select International on our blue collar jobs in manufacturing (production, maintenance, warehouse).  Select has a few short online assessments based off personality research that look at risk factors for CWBs (absenteeism, turnover, safety) in applicants for the jobs we're targeting.  We've used these assessments to identify and remove the highest-risk applicants in the talent pool.

Feel free to reach out to them or me for a more detailed description.

Best regards,

Subject: [IPAC-List] Vendors or assessments for counterproductive work behavior screening

Looking for suggestions on vendors and/or assessments to screen for CWB.  I have a customer department (airport) that has struggled with some recent hires.  They've asked about maybe adding an online assessment to help screen candidates.   The type of jobs that seem to be at issue are more blue collar (skilled trades,  labor, maintenance).  The issues they are encountering include sleeping on the job, unauthorized use of city equipment, losing city equipment, attendance, etc.

The volume of hires is probably not that large relatively speaking for the assessment industry, they probably do a couple hundred hires total for the year in this job area, so pricing model will be an important factor as well.
