The PI is used for a variety of human resource management (HRM) purposes, including employee selection, executive on-boarding, leadership development, succession planning, performance coaching, team-building and organisational culture change, among others. Using the PI to increase understanding of the particular strengths and characteristics of staff members can also help increase employee engagement and productivity and decrease staff turnover.

In talent acquisition (TA), predictive analytics is a tool that helps companies hire better and faster. In today’s highly competitive talent market, doing so is key to securing the talent you need. The PI measures four primary and fundamental personality constructs:Dominance: An individual seeks to control over his or her environment to the extent to excel the performance. Individuals who score high on this dimension are independent, assertive and self-confident. Individuals who score low on this dimension are agreeable, cooperative and accommodating.

Extroversion: The degree to which an individual seeks social interaction with other people. Individuals who score high on this dimension are outgoing, persuasive and socially-poised. Individuals who score low on this dimension are serious, introspective and task-oriented.Patience: The degree to which an individual seeks consistency and stability in his or her environment. Individuals who score high on this dimension are patient, consistent and deliberate. Individuals who score low on this dimension are fast-paced, urgent and intense.
