Step One Survey® For Employee Screening

The Step One Survey is a brief pre-hire assessment and screening tool that measures an individual’s basic work-related values early in the candidate selection process. This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes towards theft—including the theft of property, data, and time. In many organizations, the
Step One Survey is the first screen that all applicants must pass before proceeding in the
hiring process
