What Is a Predictive Index Assessment?

A Predictive Index Assessment evaluates the potential of employees in several metrics, including leadership, organization, innovation and change management. It is designed to help employers find qualified candidates, develop leadership in current employees, create an efficient succession management strategy and improve employee retention, according to Predictive Synergistic Systems.

A new employee fills out the checklist provided to him or her by a trained Predictive Index Assessment administrator. The candidate's answers are compared against the master worksheet, called the Performance Requirement Options or PRO, which is created for each individual position.

The Predictive Index Assessment launched in 1995 and has been used by numerous businesses to enhance their employee management protocols, as noted by Predictive Synergistic Systems.
