TalentPredix™ helps employers discover exceptional hires and unlock the unique talents of employees and teams
July 2021: James Brook, a pioneer of strengths-based assessment and development and leading business psychologist, unveils the next generation of assessment technology TalentPredix™. Together with an expert team of psychologists, Brook has created this new approach to talent assessment to support recruitment, individual and team development, and employee engagement in today’s rapidly evolving working environment.
At the cutting edge of psychometric assessment, TalentPredix™ provides a powerful 3-D assessment of candidates and employees, identifying their unique combination of talents, career motivations and personal values. This multiplies the predictive power and performance outcomes for employers. TalentPredix™ challenges current approaches which categorize candidates and employees using broad and imprecise labels, focusing instead on their unique talents and individuality. Organizations can harness the insight to hire exceptional people who possess the talents, motivations and values to thrive and enhance company culture, not just fit in. Together with proprietary training and talent coaching, insights from TalentPredix™ support employees to perform at their best and develop their full potential. TalentPredix™ also aids people to think differently about weaker areas enabling them to overcome performance limiters and boost their learning.
Ongoing research, machine learning and benchmarking against peer data means the tool will also predict how successful individuals will be in specific roles. This predictive view enables organizations to improve the way they recruit candidates and create long-term talent management strategies, strengthening development programmes and succession plans.
James Brook, creator of TalentPredix™, comments: “The way we work is changing faster than ever, yet most workplace assessment tools haven’t kept up with the pace. TalentPredix™ moves away from labelling people as broad “types”, which over-simplifies personality and overlooks the important role personal motivations and values play in determining behaviour. It is the ability to uncover a candidate’s uniqueness that sets TalentPredix™ apart and suits modern-thinking around amplifying individuality and diversity in the workplace.
“TalentPredix™ can be used in different stages of the employee life cycle, from recruitment and team building to leadership development and preparing people for future roles. The assessment can also attract talent; employees are increasingly looking to work for an employer that understands and supports their personal values and wellbeing as much as their career development. Bringing out the best in people enables them to thrive, accelerates performance and encourages collaboration. Applied organization-wide, the results help businesses to combine unique talents and create cognitively diverse, high-performing teams.”
