The Employee Screening Questionnaire 2 (ESQ2) is a personality-based selection assessment. It provides a hiring report accurately predicting applicants' probable job commitment (low-turnover), risk of engaging in counterproductive work behaviors, as well as propensity for positive work behaviors.
The ESQ2 is the product of decades of research on personality and was developed by Douglas N. Jackson, Ph.D. Among other honors, Dr. Jackson was president of the American Psychological Association's Division of Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics, Chair of APA's Committee on Psychological Tests and Assessments, and President of the Society of Multivariate Experimental Psychology.
The ESQ2 is revolutionary among selection assessments in its resistance to faking.
This report is based on professionally conducted research and advanced scale construction techniques. Studies have shown that the ESQ2 is a valid predictor of job performance. However, the scores reported should be interpreted as probabilities, not certainties, because human behavior cannot be predicted with 100 percent accuracy.
This report is designed to be used in conjunction with other information gathered during the candidate screening process. A final decision on this job candidate should be based on a combination of the results reported in the ESQ2 and other sources, such as the job candidate's job knowledge, general intellectual ability, specific skills and aptitudes, and conduct during a job interview.
