Abstract

While personality testing has been used extensively in pre-employment screening, authors have noted the possibility of these tools introducing bias into the employment process and potentially violating the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. An alternative pre-employment screening using Clifton StrengthsFinder® Assessment top five leadership traits is tested to see if there is a relationship between the results and on-the-job performance for existing fleet managers of a large trucking firm. Results of the study reveal that there is a correlation between certain top five leadership traits and several measures of fleet manager performance used by their employer for evaluation.
