Workplace Personality Inventory–II (WPI-II)

The Workplace Personality Inventory – II (WPI-II) is a flexible personality assessment that builds upon the original WPI, measuring 16 work styles linked to key traits for a wide range of jobs.

The WPI-II can be used to gain insights on leadership, initiative, innovation, and can be used as a predictor of flexibility, dependability, attention to detail and more.

The following 6 key drivers of performance are assessed by the WPI-II:

  • Achievement
  • Social Influence
  • Interpersonal
  • Self Adjustment
  • Conscientiousness
  • Practical Intelligence

The sixteen work style scales are summarised under six Domain Scales (Six Drivers of Work Performance). A fake-resistant “Unlikely Virtues” scale is designed to identify individuals who provide overly favorable responses to questions.

The report features development suggestions that are personalised for the employee based on his or her scores, and provides step-by-step directions for how to begin and implement a development plan based on WPI-II feedback.

By using slightly more items (192 versus 167) that only increase administration time by five minutes, the Scale reliability has been improved.
