WELLESLEY, Mass., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Predictive Index (PI), a company that empowers businesses to realize what drives workplace behaviors, today announced the addition of the PI Learning Indicator™ to its product suite.
Launching today as the PI Learning Indicator, formerly known as The Professional Learning Indicator™ (PLI), this world-class scientifically validated cognitive ability assessment measures an individual's capacity to learn, adapt, and grasp new concepts in the workplace. When paired with PI's flagship Behavioral Assessment™, the PI Learning Indicator (a 12-minute timed assessment), significantly increases the ability to predict on-the-job performance.
The Predictive Index acquired PLI from Morten Lokkegaard, principal owner of PLI and Managing Partner of Humanostics, a Denmark-based management consulting firm and PI Certified Partner that assists companies and organizations in creating measurable results by focusing on their key resource: people.
"General cognitive ability assessments like the PI Learning Indicator are among the best predictors of training success and job performance across all job levels and industries," said Mike Zani, CEO of The Predictive Index. "Several studies show that when you assess a candidate's behavioral make-up and cognitive ability, you are many times more likely to be able to predict if they will meet or exceed job performance expectations. This one-two punch gives us the ability to provide companies with a complete solution that can be used to assess and develop employees through the hire-to-retire lifecycle."
The PI Learning Indicator is being fully integrated into the company's methodology and workforce assessment platform. It will be sold as part of The Predictive Index suite of workforce assessments and management training workshops. The PI Learning Indicator is a scientifically validated measure of general mental ability. It was built following strict standards of test construction set by professional organizations such as the American Psychological Association (APA), Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), and the International Test Commission (ITC).
"Our clients have had amazing success leveraging both behavioral and cognitive assessments to ensure the most efficient and effective candidate selection, hiring, and onboarding process," said Lokkegaard who has offered The Predictive Index system to his clients alongside PLI for the last 5 years. "They need to identify people who are highly trainable and are able to distill large amounts of information in a short period of time, and this tool does just that."
This year marks significant growth and change for The Predictive Index. In addition to adding the Learning Indicator to its product offerings, the company is moving into new offices in Westwood, Massachusetts this February and reached a milestone of 67 PI Certified Partners and added a record number of 934 clients in 2015 with global interest increasing more than ever.
