Behaviours are innate and after our formative years they do not change over our work-life. That is why knowing and understanding behaviours of workforce is extremely important. It is infact said that - 'People are hired for skills but get fired for behaviours'. Though we can provide skills to employees from time to time but behaviour is something that cannot be modified.
Behaviours or personality traits of a person has a profound impact on the workplace performance. Once behaviours are known, we can predict the level of performance and the challenges an employee is going to face in a given job role. Advancements in science allows us to understand the behavioural traits of a person without even having to meet them.
PI is a robust behavioural assessment system which has been in use for last 60 years in 140 countries. It is a managerial assessment tool that provides insight into the workplace behaviours of prospective and existing employees – resulting in improved hiring decisions, succession planning, team performance, overall communication, and workforce productivity.
What all does PI Behavioural system measure
PI behavioural survey allows us to understand 3 aspect of our workplace personality
Self tells us about the natural behavioural traits of a person. This is the unchanging aspect of our workplace personality and gets hardened by the completion of our formative years. This is the most important aspect of workplace behaviours as one is able to perform best when natural self is aligned with the demands of the work
This aspect of analysis provides insight into the changes which an individual is trying to make in their behaviour in response to the work environment. Self-concept is very useful to understand the perception about work that the current employees have and plan out interventions accordingly
Synthesis tells us about how an individual is actually behaving at the workplace. It provides insights about the observable behaviours that one would be able to see in a person. Synthesis and Self-concept are dynamic part of personalities which may change in 6-12 months with change in external work environment
Often organizations rely on global benchmarks to determine competencies required for a
job role. But these competencies do not capture the unique requirements of job which are specific to the organization.
Job PRO helps HR and line managers understand the specific behavioural competencies that are required for a particular
role in their organization. Job PRO takes about 8-10 minutes to fill and can be completed by managers without any training.
Reports and Guides
There are many reports that can be generated from the PI system. Some of these reports are
Individual’s PI report
Personal Development Chart
Fit and Gap analysis
Job Analysis Report
Group Analytics (GA)
GA is a unique feature of the PI system. It enables the managers to combine the behavioural data for individuals and get insights into group dynamics. This feature allows organizations to analyse how their top performers look like and how they differ from rest of the team. GA is an excellent tool for top management to determine what sort of interventions are required at team level based on the behavioural competencies.

Step 4: Pull out Interview guides for the questions that needs to be asked by hiring team and line managers
