Talent Optimization is a four-part discipline that details how to align your company’s business strategy with your talent strategy. At the core of Talent Optimization is the collection, analysis, and application of people data garnered with PI.

  1. Diagnose: First, using PI®, we’ll measure critical people data like behavior, cognition, employee engagement, job performance, team organization and culture, and employee sentiment. And then we’ll analyze the data, and determine the best course of action.
  1. Design: Most companies throw together employees without considering the individuals which is why results suffer. An intentional approach provides greater success. We’ll show you how to use PI® to evaluate and design your leadership team – all teams – so you can understand the team’s dynamics and establish your preferred culture.
  1. Hire: We’ll show you how to use PI data insights to hire top talent and build high-performing teams inclusive of defining job requirements, predicting new hire and team dynamics, and address cultural fit. The ability to hire well eliminates expensive misfires and sets the stage for organizational success.
  1. Inspire: In most companies, employees lack the necessary people data insights to work together at their best – they inadvertently create communications problems and conflicts. We’ll show you how PI uses people data to drive important employee-oriented activities that support the critical relationship between an employee and their manager, in addition to career pathing and maintaining organizational culture.

Using the Predictive Index and the Talent Optimization process eliminates bias while expediting and streamlining multiple talent systems such as job design, recruiting, screening, hiring, team building, selection/promotion, conflict resolution, overall communication, performance management, and coaching.
