The PCI Advantage

  • Expert Advisement

    Our process is designed and delivered by Master's or Doctoral level psychologists who have conducted thousands of assessments and become experts at balancing the art and science of what we do.

  • Legal Defensibility

    Our assessment measures characteristics that have been proven to predict performance and do so the same regardless of the individual or position.

  • Customer Focus

    We pride ourselves on being accessible. Assessors give you their cell phone numbers, and emails are checked outside of normal business hours. You can speak with the assessor at any time for as long as that individual works for you - all at no extra charge. Evening and weekend interviews are also offered to participants to work around their busy schedules.

  • Customization

    We tailor the process and reporting to meet your needs. We can create competencies for you, map our process to your existing competencies, and rate your organizational values.

  • Quick, Accurate Results

    Our process is robust and allows us to assess the whole person in a reliable and valid way. We have become experts at understanding interactions between traits, integrating highly complex data sets, and describing those results in a way that clear and concrete. Next day turnaround of reports in most cases, with same day possible for some levels.

  • Cost Effective

    The information provided by one of our assessments can be used to select, onboard, develop, and promote a participant. With the increased productivity and decreased turnover you will get from selecting, developing, and retaining top talent, it pays for itself many times over.

Our Approach to Talent Assessment
