Bottom-line business outcomes are directly linked to the processes organizations use to acquire, retain and develop their talent. Assessments such as cognitive ability, motivation and personality can be used to accurately predict an individual’s potential for on-the-job performance. This information provides an organization with unique intelligence about their people, enabling the development of effective talent acquisition and mobility strategies.
