In February of 2021, The Predictive Index surveyed 515 CEOs, presidents, and SVPs from 15+ industries. The goal was to understand how companies that practice talent optimization—the discipline of aligning talent and business strategies—fared in one of the most tumultuous business years on record.
As you’ll see, talent optimization is a differentiator
After reading this report, you’ll understand how companies practice talent optimization to achieve positive business outcomes, even amid uncertainty.
What is a “talent optimized company”
For the purposes of this report, we used the term “talent optimized company” to describe companies that:
- Have a talent strategy
- Have a business strategy
- Align their talent and business strategies
It’s important to note that even though the word “optimized” indicates completion, talent optimization is an ongoing practice—not something you do once and check off your list.
A passion for understanding people
The Predictive Index was founded more than sixty years ago, and in all that time, the PI mission has not changed. The passion, inherited from the founder, is to understand people and teams—specifically what drives behaviors at work.
The PI quest, like yours, is to discover how to impact that behavior, ignite enthusiasm, and align business strategy with talent strategy.
