SACS Consulting has recently undertaken a major study into whether it is possible to predict bad behaviours in employees and have found that by using a combination of personality and values assessments, these could be predicted with 45% accuracy.
SACS found that the rates of these counter-productive work behaviours (as they are often called in research) are worryingly high, with in excess of 50% of employees admitting to ignoring or snubbing employees they did not like.
Similar frequencies were found for other behaviours such as stealing from work.
Many employers have experienced counter-productive work behaviours and know how damaging they can be to employees and to the organisation.
