X-ray vision for your jobs

Most people begin the hiring process with a job description and a stack of resumes.

Job descriptions may tell us a lot about tasks and skills, but they tell us little about the kind of person who will succeed best in that job.

This creates a huge disconnect for hiring managers trying to match real people to job descriptions. Most of us cross that chasm by relying on “gut instinct” and pay the price down the road. According to research, 46% of new hires fail within 18 months.*

There’s a better way to evaluate candidates—one that’s built on proven science, and focuses not solely on tasks and skills but on the behavioral traits and cognitive abilities that will ensure a candidate will succeed in your new role: PI Job Assessments and PI Job Targets.

Create job targets before your job postings go up

PI gives you unlimited access to our simple Job Assessment. Completing this process helps you X-ray each job and identify the underlying traits that will lead to success in each specific role. The Assessment can be created by a single user or taken collaboratively by team of stakeholders. Once all the input is given, we’ll generate a job target that will serve as your guide to making a great hire.

Remove bias from hiring

We all have biases that sneak into our decisions—whether we recognize them or not. By creating objective measures of both the job and the candidate, we inoculate ourselves against those biases. Plus, behavioral drives and cognitive ability have been proven to be strong predictors of job performance. Having this information is a powerful tool for both your recruitment and your development efforts.

Define your existing roles

Don’t stop with new hires. Use the Job Assessment to objectively assess all the roles in your organization—even the filled ones. Job targets should be used as a fundamental part of your talent strategy and succession planning, and are a critical tool for coaching and employee development.
