Work Reliability Scale
Reliability beliefs and attitudes (i.e. integrity) consist of perceptions towards counterproductive behaviours such as theft, dishonesty, and absenteeism.
Research demonstrates that integrity tests predict counterproductive workplace behaviour. By assessing attitudes towards these behaviours, employers can identify individuals who have stricter attitudes and are inherently less likely to steal, lie or be absent from work. Such individuals are likely to contribute positively to a high reliability culture within the organisation, as they are less likely to condone or support counterproductive behaviour in others.
Screening out applicants with lenient attitudes towards counterproductive behaviour (i.e. low levels of integrity) leads to:
- Reduced shrinkage (i.e. theft)
- Reduced absenteeism (e.g. non genuine sick leave)
- Reduced ‘white collar’ crime
- Lower levels of inappropriate workplace behaviour
- Reduced involuntary turnover.
The Revelian Work Reliability Scale (RWRS) assesses individuals’ attitudes and beliefs towards counterproductive behaviours such as theft, dishonesty and absenteeism.
Individuals completing the Onetest Work Reliability Scale are asked to indicate the extent to which they agree or disagree with a series of statements. Analysis across all question types generates an overall reliability score for each person and also identifies if they are attempting to distort or fake their responses.

|Test||Revelian Work Reliability Scale (RWRS)|
|Predicts||Counterproductive behaviours (e.g. theft, absenteeism, dishonesty)|
|Use||Primary assessment. Assess all applicants to determine degree of risk. All industries. Most suitable for roles where integrity / reliability are key components, where counterproductive behaviour is currently high, or where the opportunity for counterproductive behaviour is high (e.g., low level of supervision, easy access to merchandise, materials or cash)|
|Time||10 minutes (untimed)|
|Normative Groups||Industry, Employed Adults, Company Specific Benchmark|
|Validity Check||'Consistency' and 'Positive Self Presentation' Scales|
