Understand what drives people

Behavioral Assessment

This science-backed PI Behavioral Assessment™ allows you to delve deep into the behavioural characteristics and motivational needs of your candidates and employees, and predict their likely workplace behaviour

One quick and simple tool

Deep insights into your people

How well do you really know your people? Does your new recruit’s behaviour not quite match what you saw in the interview? Why is there friction in your team?

Research shows that talent assessments are some of the best predictors of future job performance. The better a person’s natural motivating drives and needs are matched to the requirements of a job, the more likely they are to be engaged and succeed.

The PI Behavioral Assessment is a science-based online tool that helps you map a person’s behaviour into four motivational drives. These drives, and their relation to each other, define a person’s core behavioural pattern. This in turn helps you understand the individual’s natural needs, and the likely associated workplace behaviour.

Use these insights to hire the right candidate for the job, design high-performing teams, identify the root of workplace friction and inspire employees to perform.

Discover what makes your people tick

How does the PI Behavioral Assessment work?

1

The Assessment

Survey takers are presented with two lists of adjectives: one to describe the way others expect them to act, and one to select what they feel describes them

2

The four factors

Each adjective is associated with one of the four key factors that determine workplace behaviour: dominance, extraversion, patience, and formality

3

Behavioural profile

The assessment algorithm then creates a behavioural profile, which highlights the main behavioural needs and motivational drives

4

Reference profile

Each individual is assigned a Reference Profile which is a shorthand way of talking about what drives and motivates them

5

In-built guides

Use the in-built tools such as the Relationship or Coaching Guide, or the Personal or Manager Development Chart to address your specific people challenges
