Anyone in your company can be set up with an account in the Predictive Index cloud. Usually the HR department of course The tools are available 24/7. Sending tests to candidates and retrieving up to almost 10 different reports are all managed by you at your fingertips.

The PI tools are available in more than 60 languages, including Thai of course. This ensures that candidates and employees can complete the assessment in their mother tongue.

People are extremely complex. The science-based methodology of The Predictive Index® allows you to understand what drives workplace behaviors so that you can ensure alignment, drive your team’s success.

Job Assessment is where the recruitment begins

The Job Assessment™ is where any recruitment starts. This online job targeting tool allows the stakeholders to give input to a position through an online questionnaire. The objective is to have an agreement on what kind of person you want to hire.

The PI Job Assessment™ is built on proven science and provides data to evaluate your candidates objectively on their behavioural traits and cognitive ability. This will help you match the right person with the job.

Personality Assessment

We call it the Four A Syndrome, because when you trust your gut, you are assessing a candidate’s presentation skills over business performance and substance. The four A’s are: Continue reading “Should I ever trust my gut feeling when interviewing candidates?”
