The Purpose of the MVPI

The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) examines the forces that make up your personality. By assessing your inner motivations, your employer can better understand your desire to succeed at work, as well as what job and working environment fits you best. This inventory takes you approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and predicts your job satisfaction and success.
