LADO, Mario  and  ALONSO, Pamela. The Five-Factor model and job performance in low complexity jobs: A quantitative synthesis. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.3, pp.175-182. ISSN 2174-0534.

This article presents the results of four primary studies that investigated the degree to which the Big Five personality dimensions predict job performance in occupations with a low level of job complexity. Job performance was assessed as overall job performance (OJP), task performance (TP), and contextual performance (CP). The results showed that conscientiousness and emotional stability proved to be predictors of the three performance measures. In addition, extroversion was a relevant predictor of OJP and TP, and agreeableness was a predictor of CP. Implications for the theory and practice of job performance and personnel selection are discussed.

Keywords : Five Factor model; Personality; Job performance; Job complexity; Meta-analysis.
