WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the merger of two of the biggest talent assessment pioneers, SHL and PreVisor, federal contractor PDRI -- formerly a PreVisor company and now an SHL company -- released a statement describing the impact on their public sector contracts and capabilities going forward.
"We will be able to bring even more resources to the Federal government by leveraging an expanded array of assessment products, tools, and international expertise that is one of the many strengths of SHL," stated Dr. Elaine Pulakos, newly appointed President of PDRI, an SHL Company. "As a result of the January 11th merger, our combined organization employs more I-O psychologists, offering more assessment products and services than any other talent management firm worldwide. That capability will enable PDRI to deliver solutions for even the largest and most complex assessment requirements, which we have seen grow significantly in the federal government space."
As reported in the earlier merger announcement, the combined company will have over 850 employees with a presence in more than 50 countries, and through the merger becomes the largest employer of business psychologists anywhere in the world outside the public sector. With SHL, PDRI now offers its customers access to over 1,000 assessments and a world-class, global consulting practice. These additional resources will assist PDRI in its hiring reform initiatives within the Federal government.
PDRI will remain headquartered in Washington D.C., retaining the name 'PDRI, an SHL Company'. SHL has offices in London, North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia / New Zealand.
