The Inventory for Work Attitude
& Motivation (iWAM) is a questionnaire
used for job-related activities, such as recruitment, coaching and training
projects. It is based on metaprograms, a model of cognitive thinking styles (48 parameters
are measured and explained).
The iWAM Management Report identifies a person's motivational and attitude
preferences in the job context and predicts how this person will behave
in various job types, such as administrative, customer contact or managerial
tasks. The iWAM Attitude Sorter predicts key motivational preferences and
development areas. The questionnaire can be administered over the Internet or as a pen-and-paper test.
The iWAM is currently available in more than 15 languages. Test administration takes 25 to 45 minutes.
iWAM is our most popular product for a reason. Not only has it been used to get great results
in various HRM application domains, such as recruiting, coaching & mentoring, management and team-building, but it's also founded on solid research.

What can iWAM provide for my organization?
Sometimes the moment a candidate walks into the door you get this feeling
that the interview might be a waste of time both for you and the candidate.
Since iWAM is available on the Internet, it saves you time by testing
people even before inviting them for an interview.
Accurate research is our priority. iWAM has been designed to eliminate
test falsification, and several universities have been working with
us on the validation of the tool.
- Low Cost:
iWAM is available at a fraction of the cost of other evaluation models with comparable features.
This is made possible by the online nature of the test, and our commitment
to customer satisfaction. Get the proof on our Quote
Why waste time with unnecessary interviews? With jobEQ, you get access
to a protected online HR environment, where you can invite candidates,
print an individual's report immediately after the test was taken, and
follow up the candidates by e-mail.
The iWAM management report can also be used as a management and teambuilding
tool. The report indicates how persons will react as manager, in an
administrative function or in a customer-oriented function. It even
indicates what kind of language will motivate the person.
What I love about the iWAM is that it makes it easy to know how to motivate or coach an employee.
