A pair of hands holding a red heart, representing personal values and counterproductive work behaviours.

Many organisations and recruiters place a high importance on a person’s values as a way to predict counterproductive work behaviours.

But what are values? Sagiv defines them as trans-situational goals – things that we want that apply across many different situations.

Although values are only a modest predictor of negative behaviours, they are quite effective at determining “fit”. Will this person fit this role, this team or this organisation?

Having a good fit means that an employee will be happier and more engaged, and thus less likely to cause harm to others or the organisation.
