Predictive Employability Index (PEI)

Speed up hiring | Reduce Hiring Mistakes | Increase Employee Retention

Most companies begin the hiring process with just a pile of resumes.

Job descriptions may tell us a lot about tasks and skills, but they tell us little about the kind of person who will succeed best in that job.

This creates a huge disconnect for hiring managers trying to match real people to job descriptions. 

Most of us cross that chasm by relying on “gut instinct” and pay the price down the road. According to research, 46% of new hires fail within 18 months.

There’s a better way to evaluate candidates—one that’s built on proven science, and focuses not solely on tasks and skills but on the behavioural traits that will ensure a candidate will succeed in the role.

“PEI insights help key talent functions avoid mistakes related to bias, politics, ‘gut feelings’ and chance. These types of issues can produce a litany of organisational issues that can devastate business results.”

Remove Subjectivity from Hiring

Personality based or behavioural assessments help reduce the subjectivity involved when employers only use interview techniques as a primary means of hiring. An accurate personality based assessment can provide objective insights into key personality traits intrinsically related to workplace performance.

With PEI, Everyone Wins

Behavioural patters are unique to an individual. PEI helps you a get a peek into the personality characteristics of a candidate based on eight core attributes critical to performance. When used correctly, PEI leads to better hires, higher levels of performance, job satisfaction and talent retention.

Employability Attributes

PEI allows you assess a job candidate on eight personality attributes that we consider critical to performance. A candidate is more likely to deliver performance if he/she possesses the right mix of these core attributes for the role.

How it Works

PEI is a timed assessment comprising of 90 questions to be answered in 35 minutes. The candidate only needs to make a choice between level of agreement or disagreement with the statements in the assessment questionnaire.
