What is The Predictive Index®?

The Predictive Index is the leader in talent optimization that empowers entire organizations to align their people strategy with business strategy for optimal business results.

The Predictive Index measures behavioral drives (Dominance, Extraversion, Patience, and Formality) as well as cognitive ability.

PI assessments help business leaders:

Understand the needs of a specific role, team, project, or business strategy;

Collect candidate or employee “people data”;

Use that data to make more informed—and more objective—decisions.

The PI Job Assessment™ pinpoints the behavioral traits and cognitive ability someone would need to be successful in a given role.

The PI Behavioral Assessment helps you determine if someone has the right personality for the job.

The PI Cognitive Assessment helps you understand the speed at which someone learns new information.

Together, these PI hiring assessment tools increase your ability to predict candidate success.

“We didn’t realize how much we needed Predictive Index® until we were exposed to it. My eyes were opened to how we could do what we do so much better – all the various ways The Predictive Index® and Elite Partner Predictive Success Corporation can help us enhance leader and management relationships. We didn’t know what we were missing.

– Dr. Bob Fortosis, EVP, Windstar Homes Inc., Tampa, Florida

“The Predictive Index was very accurate and I can’t wait to use this program.

– Nancy Martini, Toromont Industries
