The EQ Score
An initial “self-reported” EQ score is derived through a proprietary matrix of relationships between answers to given questions. It is important to understand that while the EQ is the foundation for the WME selection process, the process does not end when the survey is complete. Supporting documentation is then reviewed to verify the self-reported EQ score. The review process may also include multiple means of independent verification on an as-needed basis that may include additional research and requests for additional documentation. Using publicly available media sources and research conducted by partners, we conduct reputational and legal reviews to determine any outstanding or historical issues as well. Self-reported EQ scores are often adjusted based on documentation review and independent research.
Each candidate then receives a “validated” EQ score that may be higher or lower than the initial self-reported score. Note that if we are unable to verify certain aspects of your self-reported performance, the resulting scores may be discounted.
