MiNT is an online Five Factors Model-based inventory that predicts the risk of Counterproductive Work Behaviors (CWB).
Counterproductive Work Behaviors Revealed
It refers to behaviors that are intentional and contrary to the organization interests, such as tardiness, faking sick leaves, being rude or abusive, recklessness or theft. CWB is prevalent to some extent in all organizations.
Combating and compensating for these kinds of behaviors can be both difficult and costly. In worst cases, it can lead to legal actions and lasting harm for the brand, but even the most common occurrences of CWB will generate costs in the form of a deteriorated working environment, lowered motivation levels and lack of collaboration.
