Talent Success Prediction™: Objective Data Doesn’t Lie

Take the uncertainty out of the hiring equation.

  • Convenient

    We conduct phone interviews and schedule testing when it’s most convenient for candidates. You save time and money—and always get scientifically valid results quickly.

  • Objective

    Interviews can make people seem to be what they’re not. Our process is a highly objective predictor of candidate success. With PCI, you’ll make your decisions based on facts—not feelings.

  • Accurate

    When there’s so much at stake with every hire, making choices with limited data is risky. We integrate multiple tests and interview data so you can always be confident in our results and our accuracy.

  • Rigorous

    We use extensively researched tools, our proprietary normative databases, and a peer review process to ensure our results are job-related, objective, fair, and legally defensible.

  • Unbiased

    We have no vested interest in the decisions made about those that we assess. What’s more, we test for things that other firms don’t. The result? A total evaluation of a candidate’s potential for success.

  • High-touch

    Our work doesn’t end with the report. Our assessors are happy to speak with you to answer your questions or to provide more information about a candidate’s results before, after or during the process.

Designed for the Way You Work

What Standards do You Want to Measure Your Candidates Against?

We can develop a competency model for you, design one with you, or map our process to your competencies. You can then choose one of our standard reports or customize the reporting to fit your needs.
