Conscientiousness as a Predictor of Productive and Counterproductive Behaviors
This article extends the integrity testing literature by examining relationships between conscientiousness subscales and productive and counterproductive workplace behaviors. Correlational analyses (n = 359 employees) indicated conscientiousness predicted overall performance, supervisors' willingness to rehire and employee attendance, but not integrity/safety ratings. Conscientiousness subscales differentially predicted criteria and were more parsimonious.
