What Our Clients Say
In 2010, prior to the implementation of PI, we hired 330 OPC’s. The following year, by attracting the right people for the role, we only had to hire 130 OPC’s (61% fewer hires).

Predictive Index Basics
The Predictive Index behavioral assessment is a survey where a respondent is asked to select from a checklist of adjectives that describe how they view themselves versus how they think other people expect them to act or be. Once a survey is completed, the answers are interpreted according to a 4-factor model of personality made up of Dominance, Extroversion, Patience, and Formality. Based on where the results place the respondent on each of the four personality scales, an overall assessment is made that predicts workplace performance. The Predictive Index assessment is used as a part of a suite of programs that address talent acquisition, talent development, change management, and growth strategy in a business setting.

Predictive Index in Talent Acquisition
There are significant financial consequences of making a poor hire, including recruiting costs, lost productivity, poor performance, and low morale. No organization can afford to make a bad hire or lose that hire before their potential is realized. Talent Acquisition is the critical process of finding, assessing and acquiring talent to meet the company’s goals. It involves pre-employment testing and also includes the essential onboarding process once the hire is made.
The Predictive Index® behavioral assessment takes the guesswork out of the selection process by defining the behavioral requirements of the job and identifying the natural behavioral drives of the candidate. This allows for a fit/gap analysis between the job profile and the personality profile of the candidate. The PI Test also gives key insights into the candidate’s training and talent management needs to support the onboarding process.
Predictive Index in Talent Development
For organizations to be successful in today’s competitive environment, they must have the very best people leading and motivating employees at all levels of the organization. However, organizational leadership that motivates and drives staff performance does not happen by accident; it requires talent management skills and knowing how to identify and develop top talent into leaders of today and tomorrow. Whether it is leadership coaching for an employee to meet their individual goals, succession planning to ensure long-term success, or team building to build trust and improve internal communication, leaders today must be diverse and innovative to get the job done.
PI Midlantic uses established science to provide insight into your leaders’ natural behaviors and styles, how they engage with others, and their role in team leadership dynamics. The Predictive Index Survey and System offerings provide the insight to groom your high-potential talent and help you engage and retain those employees who will contribute to your company’s long-term success.
Predictive Index in Change Management
Change is about people and their behavior. Change Management is about understanding both. Organizations that understand how to communicate and implement change in step with the behavioral needs of their employees are poised for success. In order to do that, organizations around the world are turning to behavioral assessments to uncover those employee insights to anticipate and react to employee behaviors. PI Midlantic’s methodology is especially effective for you during times of organizational transition, such as culture shift, mergers and acquisitions, or when there is new leadership.
With the Predictive Index System, you can quickly and accurately gain key insights into an individual’s behavioral needs. We also help you build better skills for these situations with the Influencing Skills system from our Skill Suite. The PI Survey foundation empowers you to:
- Objectively evaluate an employee’s readiness for change.
- Anticipate how individuals and teams will respond to the change.
- Identify the most appropriate ways to engage employees and teams in the change process.
- Communicate the purpose and benefits of the change in a way that resonates with all stakeholders.

Predictive Index in Growth Strategy
Having the right people on board is fundamental for strategic business growth, and no growth strategy can be complete without identifying the talent requirements necessary to meet the organization’s future goals. You need to have a clear map of the existing talent in your organization and your future workforce requirements. The PI Assessment and system can help you plan for tomorrow by providing an objective look at the behavioral drives, capacities, and motivations of the sales professionals and managers you have today.
To achieve revenue goals, our Growth Strategy focus area empowers you with the knowledge to meet your sales-related talent acquisition and development challenges. You can rely on our powerful combination of data provided from the Predictive Index system and the Selling Skills Assessment Tool™ (SSAT). The PI Test measures how a person’s drives can impact their communication and decision-making style, while the SSAT provides an objective look at a person’s selling skills. Armed with these two perspectives, you can understand the skill sets of your people; both their strengths and areas that require training and coaching. For any employee, it can serve as the foundation for a talent management plan.
