- Assessing your respective employee’s general cognitive ability is extremely valuable due to its direct impact on job performance. A high level of general cognitive ability implies that an individual is able to obtain job knowledge on a high level and at a rapid pace. Consequently you will be able to identify employees with a high probability of performing excellently.
- PLI is a scientifically validated management tool offering fresh understanding of the individual logical basis that makes people work – and gives you the insight to enable them to work better. Thus, PLI is an indicator of trainability, in the sense that it discloses your employees’ capability of absorbing new knowledge. It is a proven, practical, and reliable indicator of a person’s logic which helps you make sound people-smart decisions with the best results for the company, and for the talent in your team.
Designed as a broad recruitment tool PLI is applicable for all candidates invited for interviews and for all types of positions at all levels. A key advantage in assessing cognitive ability is that it is relevant to examine for both entry level and advanced positions.
It is known that the general cognitive ability becomes a better predictor of job performance as the complexity of the job increases. For complex jobs such as senior leadership, strategic levels or certain specialist jobs, a measure of general cognitive ability will show an ever higher predictive validity. PLI thus enables you to manage your employees on every level and to match every job with the right candidate.
PLI produces the cognitive picture of an individual’s set of competences and is thus highly combinable with quality normative psychometric systems (personality profiles). Personality profiles measure the work-related needs and motivational drives of an individual, and combining personality and logical assessment gives the company an unparalleled insight into a current staff’s or a candidate’s potential for performing in any given position. Some psychologists believe that the two assessments in combination can explain up to 40-60% of the variance in job performance.

We know that the search for talent is competitive. Given that 78% of resumes contain misleading and embellished information, it can be difficult to predict success based solely on a behavioural interview. People who succeed in organizations have one thing in common: they meet the behavioural and cognitive demands of the role. Using a data-driven approach to glimpse into a candidate’s genetic makeup (personality, cognitive ability, etc.) will give you the tools to predict success in role, rather than skimming the surface level of a candidate’s resume. Every position in every organisation has a mix of demanded behaviours and cognitive complexity that serve as a model for success in the position. The PLI will allow you to find successful and talented candidates in an evidence-based process.
