AQ correlates strongly with many health, life, and work factors.
AQ and health perceptions: AQ correlates significantly with an employee’s perception of his or her health, fitness, quality of life, job satisfaction, and other health-related, happiness-related, and job-performance aspects of life.
AQ and attendance: AQ scores demonstrate excellent validity as a reflection of employee work attendance:
- They correlate significantly with days absent from work and with the number of absentee occurrences; the higher the employee’s AQ, the fewer his or her absences.
- They show that high-AQ employees (those who score in the top 10% – 25%) are absent fewer days and less often than low-AQ employees (those who score in the bottom 10% – 25%). The differences are statistically significant and quite large.
