Predictive Index® Employee Assessment

The Predictive Index® system is a combination of employee assessment, education and consulting. At the core of this process is the Predictive Index® survey: a workplace-related behavioral assessment tool which helps managers identify the drives and motivations of their people, and the Job Model which helps you identify the behaviors and drives necessary for superior performance on a specific job. Combined, the two tools provide managers with invaluable insights for employee assessment, coaching, leadership development, succession planning, team performance and more. The end result: improved performance and productivity for your entire organization.

It all starts with a simple checklist

At first glance, it appears to be a simple checklist of personality traits. For all its apparent simplicity, however, the Predictive Index® (PI®) is a sophisticated instrument that's been scientifically validated as a reliable predictor of work-related behavior. As anyone who has completed PI will tell you, the results are uncannily accurate.

The Predictive Index®Checklist is available in sixty languages, plus Braille.

Job Model - How do you know who’s right for the job?

Before you match a person to a job, you have to know what the job requires. That's where theJob Model (Performance Requirement Options)worksheet comes in. The Job Model gives you a road map for the various positions in your organization, providing insight into the behaviors and drives necessary for superior performance in a given role.

The Job Model and the Predictive Index® work together. The Job Model helps you understand the specific traits that lead to the most effective performance in a particular job, given the realities of your organization's methods, markets, processes and management. It also gives you insight into similarities and differences that might exist in various individuals' approaches to the same job.

You can compare an individual's PI® results with the needs of the job, highlighting both fits and gaps to make better-informed selection, coaching, performance management and leadership decisions.

The Job Model is available in 15 languages.
