Talent is Talent—Anywhere in the World

Wherever You Are, PCI Delivers the Same Results

In separate studies for two global organizations, 399 assessments of U.S. candidates and 279 assessments of candidates from around the world were reviewed. The distribution of Overall Assessment Ratings were the same — regardless of those candidate’s locations.

By using PCI for all of your global assessments, you can confidently and consistently compare candidates anywhere in the world. All of your candidates will be measured against similar standards, using PCI’s proprietary global norms. Our consistent and fair process for evaluating talent will allow you to make the best domestic and international placement and promotion decisions.
