HELP PEOPLE DISCOVER AND PRIORITIZE THEIR VALUES WITH THE CAREER VALUES SCALE
In career development workshops and counselling, one thing is constant; people who are most satisfied with their work or jobs are in careers where most of their values are being met. People who are most dissatisfied with their careers have values that clash with their jobs. The CVS measures work-related values that are the critical factor in determining job satisfaction and dissatisfaction. People who are seeking coaching and guidance will benefit from being clear on what their values are. The CVS allows individuals to clarify their values and provides them with the self-knowledge that is often missing; it helps indicate the types of organizations and work cultures that promote individual success and it helps evaluate the fit between values and organizational culture. The Career Values Scale is designed to provide an individual with information about what is important in their work or career. It can be used in individual career counselling and planning to structure the exploration of the relative importance of client’s values.
The Career Values scale is subdivided into three factors: Working with Others, Self-Expression and Extrinsic Rewards.
WORKING WITH OTHERS
THE CAREER VALUES SCALE CAN BE USED TO:
- Explain that values are part of your personal make-up and are relatively stable goals that a person tries to obtain through work and careers.
