Values and Motives Inventory

Understanding a person’s energies and drives helps identify where they are likely to gain most satisfaction and make the biggest contribution at work. VMI is a normative self-report questionnaire which profiles a person’s motivations to determine the amount of energy and effort they are likely to expend in different activities. VMI provides a focussed, reliable and comprehensive assessment of personal values and motives. It can be used on its own or as part of an assessment battery for selection, development, guidance or team-building.

VMI scales have been selected not only for their relevance to the workplace.

The 12 scales are grouped into three areas:

• Interpersonal - values which influence an individual’s approach to relationships with others.

• Intrinsic - values relating to personal beliefs and attitudes which guide an individual’s approach to everyday problems.

• Extrinsic - values which influence behaviour in the workplace.
