What our client's say about Predictive Success

  • Testimonial from GFS - Predictive Success, Canadian Licensee of the Predictive Index “For us it’s all about hiring the right candidates, and I know that when I couple the PI® and the PLI® together, it helps me understand the candidate that I am trying to hire”.

  • Salesforce.com testimonial for Predictive Success Hey Dave, just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for doing a great job with my teams. We have been through it many times, and every time you guys execute on this very important task. I do not take that partnership for granted and greatly appreciate it - even if I do not slow to say thanks while it is all going on.  Greatly appreciated, and job well done (again)."
    Michael Weening, SVP Salesforce.com
  • Travel Brand gives a testimonial on using Predictive Index “I use PI® as a recruitment and coaching tool. I have had many managers comment on how PI has helped them better understand their employees and be able to coach them on a more personal level. I think PI is one of the most fascinating tools available to organizations since the root of all misunderstandings is not understanding why someone responds or behaves the way they do, and PI takes the guess work out and lets us focus directly on the issues.
    Loretta Colbeck, CHRP, Human Resources Generalist
  • Testimonial for PI from SAP AG, Inc.“PI® is used extensively in Inside Sales during the recruiting phase to ensure the candidates have the DNA to be successful in their roles at SAP. Post-recruiting, one of the hidden values for Inside Sales centers around leadership and employee alignment. PI is used during organizational builds to align the staff with their prospective leaders based on PI profiles, so that we get the best leadership alignment for our teams.”
