Why PI Cognitive Assessment?

Many years of research show that general cognitive ability is the single best predictor of future job performance*. Being able to absorb new information, adapt to changing situations, solve problems, and process complex information are aspects of practically any job. Performance within these areas and pace of learning are strongly associated with successful on-the-job performance. PI Cognitive Assessment provides you with such valuable information about a person’s general cognitive ability.
