The Predictive Index helps companies to meet goals and maximize efficiencies. A large part of being able to achieve these outcomes is hiring the right workforce and optimizing their abilities. Here are 5 was the Predictive Index can help you choose the right employees.
1. Link talent with position
When you hire the right person, sometimes after a while you notice their skills could be better used in other areas. When you hire the wrong person, it is easy to become frustrated and disappointed as you have to dismiss the person and start the hiring process from the start.
The Predictive Index provides you with the opportunity to assess the personality and work habits of the candidate you are interviewing. As a result, you are able to accurately determine if the person would fit in and work well with the existing members of your time. It can also determine whether he/she will be able to complete the tasks that will be assigned to them.
2. Efficient interviewing
It is a common occurrence where a company interviews a candidate who presents well and appears to be an ideal person for the job yet turns out to be unfit. Therefore, a method to assess skills and personalities is needed during the interviewing phase to guarantee the right person is chosen.
The Predictive Index is a way to guarantee your interviewing process is efficient. It allows you to specify what requirements are needed for the job and create indicators that can be used in the interview. As a result, you can tailor interview questions to the information you need and avoid costing the company time and money hiring the wrong company and having to initiate another recruitment process.
3. Link talent with other roles
As mentioned, sometimes a candidate you hire is more suitable for a different position than the one you hired him/her for. However, before you move them, you probably want to make sure your observations are correct and that you would be making the right decision that would benefit the company.
The Predictive Index can determine that a specific employee has the skills required to fill a position that needs to be filled. By administering personality tests, the Predictive Index gives results regarding personality traits, skills, and work ethic. These results can then be compared to the job specifications of other roles to determine if moving the employee would be beneficial.
4. Hire quickly
When you have a vacant position, you probably want to fill it quick. This is because when you are not operating at full capacity your profit margins may be taking a hit and tasks attributed to this position may not be getting done.
The Predictive Index is relatively easy and straightforward. Therefore, when you administer testing to a candidate, he/she can complete it quickly. Results can also be reported quickly, allowing you to make decisions in a timely manner. You are also able to specify indicators as well, such as skills and experience required as well as desirable personality traits. Consequently, it becomes easier to determine the best candidates because when they hit these indicators you can then act quickly to hire them.
While the Predictive Index is used across many industries, there are obvious differences between companies and therefore needs when it comes to hiring may vary. Luckily the Predictive Index is versatile and you can tweak it to your requirements.
The Predictive Index is versatile because it includes many different assessments that you can administer. For example, for potential candidates you could get him/her to complete a behavioural assessment to determine whether he/she would fit in with your team. For current employees you could give one more directed towards determining skills and experience for other roles. In either instance, you are able to predict performance in the workplace which is important information to have.
