Research exploring the differences between job applicants and non-applicants in values assessment for personnel selection.

This study explores how job applicants’ personal values influence their fit within organisations.

Researchers analysed data from 7,884 applicants and a comparison group of 1,806 people who were not applying for a job (non-applicants).

Results showed that applicants tended to value conformity and tradition more, while valuing power and self-direction less compared to non-applicants.

Applicants also reported valuing security, tradition, and benevolence more than non-applicants, and apparently valued stimulation, hedonism, and achievement less.

Despite potential biases in the way that applicants report their values when applying for a position, the research found that the fundamental structure of values assessment remains relevant to recruitment.

These findings can help organisations better understand the role of applicant values when making hiring decisions.
