Our Solutions are Built for Business

The Predictive Index®, or PI®, is a proven methodology that allows businesses to understand the factors driving their workforce. A 60-year track record shows that business challenges large and small are no match for our unique approach to client education and knowledge transfer, which ensures swift adoption, direct ROI, and high impact on performance metrics. The foundation of the Predictive Index talent management system is comprised of two analytic tools:

The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment is a science-based assessment that measures an individual's motivating needs, behavioral drives, and other workplace behaviors. This assessment takes under 10 minutes to complete, and yields results that a trained PI Analyst can interpret and apply immediately. 

The Predictive Index Learning Indicator is a cognitive ability assessment that measures an individual's capacity to learn, adapt, and grasp new concepts in the workplace. General cognitive ability assessments like the PI Learning Indicator are among the best predictors of training success and job performance across all job levels and industries, and the PI Learning Indicator takes just 12 minutes to complete.

Unstructured interviews alone result in only a 6% success rate in predicting job performance. Combined with behavioral and cognitive assessments, that jumps to 51%, an 8.5x (or 750%) improvement. 

 

Backed by Science

Multiple studies have confirmed Predictive Index assessments to be both reliable and scientifically valid; the PI Behavioral Assessment has been investigated in nearly 500 criterion-related validity studies since September of 1976 across almost all jobs and countries. This body of evidence supports the fact that the assessment is indeed consistently related to important workplace outcomes such as tenure, turnover, sales and customer satisfaction.

Our assessments and recommended policies were designed to provide a framework for determining the proper use of assessments and other selection procedures, as well as preventing discriminatory employment practices. The Predictive Index Assessments and recommended practices comply with guidelines established by:

  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
  • Uniform Guidelines for the Development and Use of Personnel Selection Procedures (1978)
  • American Psychological Association (APA)
  • Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP)
  • International Test Commission (ITC)
