The Predictive Index Solution

Badge (1)The Predictive Index (PI) Solution combines a behavioral and cognitive assessment that de-codes the human.  PI measures the inherent motivating needs that drive all people.  People behave in ways that meet their needs.  When needs are met at work, performance, productivity, and engagement improve (along with ROI).  Understanding learning ability and behavior provides predictability.

What also differentiates PI is The Job Assessment/Bench-Marking Tool- Performance Requirement Options (PRO).   This system provides powerful insight to design workforce analytics and map your organization for talent optimization, efficiency, and success.  The Predictive Index Solution is not just an assessment; it is part of a philosophy that changes how companies think about talent.

The Predictive Index solution is scientifically-validated for hiring and selection in any company of any size in any industry, and is proven to help organizations optimize their most important asset-their people, by helping organizations:

  • Attract, Hire, & Select Best-Fit Candidates
  • Retain Top Talent
  • Build Employee Engagement
  • Strengthen Teams & Culture
  • Improve & Leverage Organizational Effectiveness
  • Increase Productivity & Job Satisfaction
  • Discover & Develop High-Potential Leaders
  • Resolve Conflict
  • Cultivate & Empower Successful Managers
  • Manage Change
  • Eliminate Sales Slumps
  • Design & Achieve Effective Re-Organizations
  • Navigate Successful Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Execute Succession Planning
  • Optimize Exit Strategies

Our integrated approach uses predictive data to achieve improvements in business metrics such as productivity, retention, and revenue.

Science-based assessments are the foundation– everything starts with the data.  PI measures critical dimensions of behaviors and skills in the workplace.  The Predictive Index assessment, developed in 1952, was among the first to quantify the importance of behavioral drivers and needs in the workplace, providing unprecedented insight into leaders, employees, and candidates.

Our assessments include:

People-related issues can tear at the fabric of a company, eating away at even the most solid foundation built on the best products or services. On the talent acquisition front, making a bad hire can cost you through potential earnings, replacement costs, ineffectiveness, or worse, as a drain on morale. From a management perspective, a dearth of leaders or ineffective leadership can result in stagnant growth, bungled initiatives, and even corporate collapse. Attrition, team dysfunction, failed acquisitions or strategic initiatives, and lack of productivity are all directly attributable to lack of leadership, mismanagement of people, and/or not putting the right people in the right roles.  Click here to learn more about choosing an assessment.

Just as we wouldn't start to build a building without a good set of blueprints, we don't put together a team of people to build a building without using PI.
