Building Productive & Engaged Teams

SIA Group assesses an individual’s heart, mind, and briefcase throughout our recruitment process to help us identify the best possible fit for a position. When a candidate completes their Predictive Index assessment(s), it helps us to learn more about your heart and passion for what you do. Your resume and job application help us to learn more about your network and professional skill set. By better understanding an employee’s heart and mind it helps us create a more engaging work culture while inspiring our team through performance management, coaching, professional development, team building, and career growth.

The Predictive Index was founded more than six decades ago with a quest to discover how to ignite employee enthusiasm and match each role to the right person. In 1955, Arnold S. Daniels, a U.S. Army Air Corps veteran, founded PI Worldwide (now called The Predictive Index® ), after returning from the war. The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment™ was created through a normative sample of thousands of people and has since been the subject of nearly 500 validation studies. More than 25+ million assessments have been conducted since Arnold S. Daniels delivered the first Behavioral Assessment in the 1950s.
