New Technology Driven Talent Solutions Improve Clients' Hiring, Coaching, and Team Effectiveness
WELLESLEY, Mass., April 29, 2014 /CNW/ - PI Worldwide, a leader in science-driven insights that help optimize the performance and potential of individuals, teams, and organizations, today announced the launch of three new technology driven talent solutions as part of its updated Predictive Index® Management Workshop™ Program.
More than 50,000 business professionals at client companies around the world have completed the training required to leverage the Predictive Index survey and resulting workforce analytics to measure the behavioral drives and motivating needs of their employees and candidates. These insights help clients dramatically improve their talent development, talent acquisition, and organizational readiness efforts at all levels. The new program and accompanying technology solutions represent an innovative approach that gives new and existing clients direct access to a powerful combination of data, knowledge, technology and expertise.
Designed to help clients improve bottom line results, the enhanced offering features a blended learning approach to knowledge transfer that combines the convenience of E-learning with in-depth instructor-led training. The Predictive Index Management Workshop™ leverages a wide variety of guided discussions and exercises to create a lively, energetic, and transformative learning experience. As a result, participants develop skills and new insights into people, behaviors, performance, and role definition that they can put to immediate use in their organizations. Upon completion of the workshop, attendees have the knowledge and online access necessary to administer the survey, interpret the data and provide feedback on an individual's Predictive Index pattern, as well as to apply these assessments in areas such as hiring and selection, coaching, performance management, and team effectiveness.
The business application of the Predictive Index is further supported by three powerful and customizable web-enabled technologies that are being made available directly to clients for the first time. These include:
- Interview Guides: These guides help hiring teams conduct effective, structured interviews by recommending behavioral interview questions based on observed similarities and differences between a candidate and the target job role.
- Coaching Guides: These guides enable managers to clarify developmental areas for their direct reports and generate a pre-populated list of coaching questions that increase individual awareness, improve goal setting, and encourage proper follow-through.
- Group Analytics: These reports allow executives, managers, and Human Resource professionals to analyze the behavioral tendencies of organizational teams to identify performance bottlenecks and improvement opportunities.
"Our assessments have always measured critical dimensions of behavior in the workplace, and now our improved education and technology toolset helps our clients to take even greater advantage of the full potential of the Predictive Index," said Matt Poepsel, PhD, vice president, product management of PI Worldwide. "With this launch, we're pleased to give our clients a full platform consisting of the data, knowledge, and supporting technologies they need to make talent-related business improvements a reality."
In addition to putting more know-how, analytics, and talent tools into the hands of clients, PI Worldwide's global network of 45 member firms with more than 400 professional consultants are available to help clients with additional support and expert guidance.
