  • Improve culture and business results

It all starts with a leader’s willingness to understand themselves, their people, and the work they are doing.


Know Thyself

The cornerstone of Talent Optimization is the Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment which measures the key behavioral drivers of the people doing the work. Want to know what motivates someone? In just six minutes and two questions, the PI Behavioral Assessment provides data-driven insights into personality traits that determine workplace behavior across four primary factors: Dominance, Extraversion, Patience, and Formality. Where a person falls on a spectrum of these factors provides key insights into what it will be like to work with that person, as well as a sense of job fit, based on the skills and behaviors required for success in a particular role. After completing the assessment, users are assigned a reference profile – a benchmarked snapshot of the way they think and work without regard to a specific role.


Design and Align Teams for Performance and Execution

Knowing yourself is the first step, but that’s just the beginning. When used with a team via the PI Design module, behavioral assessments provide insights into how team members interact and can work better together. Additionally, when data about the strategy (or the work being done) is added to the equation, leaders and their teams gain profound insights into how (and why) they are performing in a given way as well as where they need to flex and develop to achieve greater team cohesion and results.


Hire the Right Person – Every Time

Once you’ve started your Talent Optimization journey with the Predictive Index platform, the sky is the limit as you’ll not only have the ability to analyze and design your teams for success, you’ll also have access to PI Hire, the #1 Pre-Employment Testing Software on the market, allowing you to create behavioral-based job profiles and use the PI Behavioral Assessment as part of your candidate screening process. Equipped with these profiles and insights from the Behavioral Assessment, you’ll create incredible efficiencies within your hiring processes while ensuring that every hire is a great fit for their role.


Motivate to Effect

The PI Inspire Module leverages behavioral data to help leaders and managers understand and meet employees’ needs based on an individual’s behavioral profile. This allows them to manage and motivate employees in a meaningful and personalized way that engages employees and brings out the best in them. Personalized relationship guides allow for analysis of relationship and work style patterns between employees based on their specific behavioral profiles. In addition, it can help in addressing conflict and increasing team and interpersonal cohesion.


Engage to Retain and Include

Creating a culture that supports employee retention and inclusion just doesn’t happen by itself. If anything, with 1 in 5 workers quitting in each of the last 6 months, it shows that companies that are not actively engaging their talent in the right ways are losing the war of attrition. As with any other business goal, however, you need to ensure your talent strategy actively supports your efforts. The PI Diagnose module provides teams and organizations the ability to see the real employee experience and adapt to address the drivers of disengagement in ways that are behaviorally meaningful to employees.  Regarding inclusion, it isn’t just a powerful way to fight attrition, it is also a critical catalyst for talent optimization, as a diverse team is a strong and resilient one.
