The Hoffman Vocational Values Scale (HVVS) yields twelve insightful scales plus an overall measure of job satisfaction. Comprising 25 items, the HVVS identifies areas that affect the individual’s degree of workplace self-actualization, highlighting strengths and weaknesses. Based on these scores, the HVVS then provides relevant and specific recommendations for improving job satisfaction. Effective in diverse settings ranging from small businesses to large companies as well as internationally, the HVVS provides specific results for individuals and an organizational profile based on employee responses. The HVVS has proven valuable globally.
Job satisfaction is a key area of psychological and organizational well-being. More than twenty years of research shows that our degree of self-fulfillment at work affects nearly every aspect of our personal lives—-including our family relations, physical energy, and even health. A plethora of research indicates too that when workers feel motivated, creatively challenged, and inspired, their productivity decisively increases. Since the pioneering efforts of Abraham Maslow, psychologists have known that self-actualization in the workplace is a vital goal. Yet, an effective instrument to measure that self-actualization has been badly lacking until now. The Hoffman Vocational Values Scale (HVVS) is rooted in the latest findings of “growth” psychology and organizational development.
