The importance of behavioral assessments

The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment® can predict a wide variety of personality characteristics that stem from personality factors like dominance, extraversion, patience, and formality.

Introduce Objectivity to Hiring

Personality-based, or behavioral, assessments help reduce the subjectivity involved when employers only use interview techniques. An accurate personality-based assessment can provide objective insights into key personality traits intrinsically related to workplace performance.

The insights help key talent functions avoid mistakes related to bias, politics, “gut decisions,” and chance. These types of errors can produce a litany of organizational issues that can devastate business results.

When you use assessments, everyone wins.

Behavioral patterns are unique. Your native drives, needs, and behaviors are like your superpowers. They help you excel in your career and contribute to the success of the organization that hired you.

If you knew there were certain elements of a particular job that would drive you crazy, or prevent you from performing, would you want that job?

Insights about personality characteristics of job candidates can help you understand potential job-fit; empowering you to prioritize candidates based on the best match. When used correctly, behavioral assessments lead to better hires and higher levels of performance, job satisfaction, and long-term retention.
