Career Values Scale

Measures work values, preferences and needs to indicate job satisfaction & personal goals.


The Career Values Scale (CVS) is an up-to-date measure of work values, preferences and needs. These values are a part of a person’s core beliefs and give meaning to the person’s career and life. They are a useful indicator of job satisfaction and personal goals.

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.
