New Webinar

To begin mastering the talent optimization framework and essential aptitudes, Matt Poepsel, PhD, Senior Vice President of Product at the Predictive Index, is hosting a webinar The future of work is talent optimization on March 27th at 1:00 p.m. EST.

“According to the Annual CEO Benchmarking Report, 64% of CEOs report having employee-related costs that constitute at least half of their overall costs,” said Poepsel. “If a company’s biggest expense is its talent, why do we still struggle to make great hires, create high-performing teams, and retain top talent? There just hasn’t been a system that shows us how to do this—until now. Join the talent optimization movement to learn how to align people practices with a broader business context.”
