Research shows that personality assessment is one of the best predictors of future job performance*. The better a person’s natural motivating needs and behavioural drives fit a particular job – the higher job satisfaction and performance. The PI® system provides a quick but still deep profile analysis to understand these needs and drives. The PI system is used for recruitment and development of people on all levels. It is also well suited for team and organizational development as well as change management.

PI Behavioral Assessment consists of two tools in one:
The combination of PI Behavioral Assessment and PI Job Assessment predicts the fits and gaps between a candidate and a position. It is also useful for development and coaching of co-workers.
PI Behavioral Assessment is used by HR and executive/middle managers who become certified in how to interpret results, give best possible feedback and how to use it for individual, group and organizational development. The certification also presents an opportunity for self reflection during the 2 day class room certification training. The PI Practitioner training is a blended learning experience where the classroom training is followed up by e-learning to reinforce the participants’ PI knowledge.
PI Behavioral Assessment is used by public and private organisations of all sizes and industries to:
Two intense but also highly rewarding days. What I have learned in this training is something that I can directly apply in my work and when working with development of our employees, leaders and processes.
Effective, educational and inspiring
Great value-adding tool, fantastisk training facilitator, great material and user-friendly system.
Very interesting and exciting workshop that taught me a lot about myself, my co-workers and gave me a super tool I can use in the recruiting process.
Fantastic training that is so relevant to our business needs and challenges. The best tool I've worked with in understanding our people and ourselves.
Understanding PI will bring me one more asset in finding the right person for the right role.
The PI training really opened my eyes to how much better we can become through scientific evidence, natural behaviour and how that fits into the workplace, job roles and what we need to be successful
Fantastic training, full of "lightbulb moments" that will really be useful in all aspects of daily business. Absolutely would recommend every leader to attend.
Brilliant, fast paced training which will allow me to work better with and understand my teams
Very good and exciting course with a tremendously engaged and knowledgable trainer. I will use PI a lot in my work.
Very inspiring! I want to hurry "home" and start implementing.
To gain a deeper, more nuanced and constructive image of people and groups - use PI!
In my constant strive to become a better leader for my employees, my insight and knowledge of PI will take both me and them to new levels.
A great certification training that gave me valuable insights, tools and ideas that I can start using and implementing directly.
PI is a naturally integrated part of my work day. My PI skills help me successfully adapt my oral as well as written communication. This has reduced misunderstandings to a minimum and helped me find ”short cuts” in my communication with my store managers and sales people. "We work closely in small groups, therefore the team composition is very important. I would even venture to say that the store managers' understanding of our employees’ motivational drives is their most important asset. In connection with recruitment interviews and development reviews, PI provides us with data that enable us to go beyond our gut feeling." Daniel was "Manager of the Year 2014" in the region Dalarna in Sweden.
PI is the right instrument for us in relation to recruitment and team development. We use PI within the PMC Group as a complement for discussions in all our recruitments. PI’s advantage is that it is quick and gives this extra input we need to confirm our view of the candidate at the interview. As an experienced PI analyst you can also give the candidate immediate feedback which is easy to relate to both for the candidates and the manager. We also use PI for team development where we look at the teams overall PI and the teams strengths and weaknesses as a whole. We also work with each specific persons PI in order to identify where there are potentials for conflicts or for optimizing each team members strengths to get a better effect of the entire group.
PI is an essential part of our recruitment process. The last few years we have also discovered the other possibilities PI provides us with when it comes to teambuilding activities, setting up project management teams and as a support for our development talks.
SVT has been using Predictive Index in almost all manager recruitments for over 10 years. PI has become a natural and recognized complement to the interviews for us in HR. We also use PI in team / group development. With PI the group gets a clearer picture of participants' motivations, strengths and development areas. SVT has about ten PI analysts today and they are all very much in demand. It's both fun and stimulating that the tool has had such a high impact in our organisation.
Predictive Index is being used more and more extensively within Atlas Copco internationally, as we gain experience and see how it strengthens our ability to enhance business results via an improved understanding of people's underlying motivation factors.
I have thought about contacting you for a long time with some positive feedback, now I finally managed to do so! It is fun to have the chance to work with PI. Everyone who has received feedback from me have been positively surprised, because of how well the analysis matches their behaviour and how professional it is. It feels good to have the possibility to work with a tool that I can stand behind 100%, it is both useful and trustworthy.
PI helps us ensure the quality of our internal processes: recruitment process, appraisals, professional development and team development. We use PI in different ways in our organization. It is used as an additional step in our recruitment process. After the first interview we ask candidates who proceed in the recruitment process to conduct a PI test, we then use the result as a basis for questions in the second interview. We look at the candidate’s strengths and motivational factors linked to our competence requirements for the professional role. PI is never used as a factor for rejecting a candidate. The interesting factor is the dialogue regarding how the candidate manages challenges at the workplace where his or her basic strengths and motivation is not enough.
