Talented people are not talented only because
of their skills.

Performance is a result of fixed attributes, know-how, knowledge and experiences.

To assess and predict one’s performance and potential, we measure the Motivational Drives (PI Behavioral Assessment™)*, the Learning Ability  (PI Cognitive Assessment™)*, competencies and values (CATIL®).
Cognitive abilities, drives and values are hard to detect and evolve with time — this is why we measure them through scientifically-validated processes and tools.

With our Six Dimensions Talent Framework, we help you to narrow down the opportunity or issue to focus on what counts, saving time and increasing the professionalism of your activities.

Our reputation was built on successful projects which:

  • Address turnover
  • Manage reorganization
  • Boost team dynamics
  • Bring objectivity in promotion
  • Identify readiness and potential
  • Support people and companies growth and development


Today more than half of employees undergo assessments, but they are effective only if structured with appropriate tools. Increase your validity in assessment by 70% adding reliable psychometrics and competency-based interviewing. 80% of turnover is due to a bad hiring decision – you can address this with our solutions.

The Predictive Index® and CATIL® Interview Guide can be integrated to your Applicant Tracking System and are tablet and mobile friendly.

PI Behavioral Assessment™
& Job Assessment

The PI Behavioral Assessment™ (PI BA) is a self-reported measurement of normal, adult motivational needs which predicts behaviors through 4 dimensions. It takes 5-10 minutes to complete and generates different types of reports to understand people and nourish development reflection.

You can understand your people’s drive, predict their behaviors and performance at work, how they communicate, solve problems and make decisions. You can learn how to motivate your colleagues, how to manage changes, and learn how they solve problems—and many other features. With the PI Group Analytics you get a quick view of your team and can facilitate stimulating discussion to boost team performance.

With the Job Assessment (PI JA), you set a benchmark for the position and candidate PI fit-gap. This is valid for recruitment as much as for succession planning or internal mobility. For advanced recruiters we have a complementary online interview guide (CATIL® eGuide).

PI Cognitive Assessment™

The PI Cognitive Assessment™ (PI CA) measures general cognitive aptitude and is the best predictor to learning ability, adaptability and trainability. It provides you an individual’s on-the-job performance in a future position and takes 12 minutes to complete

The general cognitive ability is an expression of the ability to handle complexity*. It affects:

  • How fast learning will take place
  • The degree of ’return’ from instruction and experience
  • Processing new information
  • Problem solving
  • Adaptation to changing environment
  • Discernment based on complex information

*Research indicates that the relation between complexity in the job and PI CA  score is exponential. This means that with a high level of job complexity the PI CA  score is even more important. This is why it is important to consider the PI CA score as a key element in the evaluation of the suitability of a candidate for complex jobs.
