Overall Satisfaction with PI Behavioral Assessment
Our entire organization is using PI in many ways. We use it to improve communication among teams by providing managers with their teams' PI results and coaching tips, it helps bring self awareness to who we are and what motivates us to better align our strengths to our roles, and we use it in the hiring process to help us pair a job position with what natural needs/motivations a candidate may possess.
- The PI results help us become more self aware. This helps us adjust our paradigms and allows us to communicate better with our peers and those around us.
- The PI results allow us to be transparent with one another about who we are, how we communicate, and what gives us energy. This allows us work together more effectively within our teams and improve communication company wide.
- The PI results allow us to help with development opportunities which assist with employee engagement. The results assist us with helping the employee be in a position which, given their natural motivations, allows them to succeed in their role and helps alignment within the company.
- PI could me more user friendly when it comes to the website. It's not hard to use but it's a bit slow to operate at times...as though there's too much data weighing it down.
- I would like for the PI software to be able to print multiple Placards at the same time so you don't have to take screen shots and paste them into a Word document.
- A positive impact PI has had on our overall business objectives is witness it's effect with employee engagement. We've seen how communication styles have changed among teams; therefore, creating a more engaging environment where employees want to be every day!
- The only negative impact we've had using PI simply came with poor timing. We just launched PI assessments to the entire organization and within the following weeks it was announced that our company was merging with another organization. Some individuals assumed that we were using this PI Assessment to determine if they were able to keep a position with the new company and were either reluctant to take the assessment or didn't complete it with an honest response. When we finally got word out about the great things PI does, and how it has nothing to do with their job position throughout the merger, we were able to ease some tension.
The only other type of Behavioral Assessment I've used is the Strengths Finder and I don't know that I'd say it's anything like PI. It still gives us great information about a persons strengths but PI tells us more about a persons motivations.
The assessment results are well suited with managers and incorporated into their leadership training. Being able to discuss helpful coaching tips about their teams' results allows them to host more effective team discussions. It has also been effectively presented to entire departments or teams. Being transparent about their results, seeing the excitement of how different each other is, really gets the group talking and anxious to learn more about one another.
