The Predictive Index: Business Success Through People Strategy
Is your corporate strategy tied to your people strategy? Some leaders expect the corporate strategy to lead to business success without implementing a people strategy that delivers results. While some organizations reach their goals, others continue to struggle.
The High Cost of Employee Turnover
Not having a people strategy that employees understand can make or break a business. Aligning business strategy with people strategy can be accomplished by using The Predictive Index Talent Optimization platform.
I know . . .
I’m Pamela D. Wilson. I built and sold two successful businesses after struggling to optimize the right corporate and people strategy.
Before becoming an entrepreneur, I worked in corporate America for highly regarded Fortune 500 companies: ConAgra, Hunt-Wesson, Best Foods, and Unilever. I had access to the best training and employee development programs in the world, and I worked my way up in these organizations.
But still, that wasn’t enough . . .
Making a difference in the lives of people became a passion. After the deaths of my parents, a brother, and a sister my priorities changed. As I shared my plan to start a “helping people” business, peers and colleagues told me I’d fail.
Finding the right people, the right employees, and creating the right business strategy was challenging. I built strategic plans and used many of the well-known employee assessment programs, including the programs used by the corporations that trained me to be a leader.
I thought I tied corporate strategy to business results. But the results were disappointing. I wasn’t hitting my goals. People and teams that couldn’t or wouldn’t work together were draining my energy. There were many sleepless nights and days filled with looking for the right solution.
Until . . .
I discovered the secret. Using advanced people data to link business strategy with people strategy became the key to my business success. With the right tools hiring became easier. Managing teams became joyful. My employees took pride in their accomplishments and viewed themselves as high performers.
My companies excelled at providing excellent customer service and built a reputation of being the go-to company for caregiving services, not once, but twice. Throughout the process of developing and training my employees, I was able to relate the people and team strategies gained through talent optimization tools to the roles and responsibilities of caregiving.
Transformation happens . . .
This experience contributes to the success of the online caregiving training programs that I offer today. When a business strategy aligns with a people strategy magical things happen.
In addition to business success, employees learn that workplace education and training transfer to valuable personal and life skills and vice versa. As a result, employees find it easier to focus on work and to manage their personal lives and the stress related to multiple roles and responsibilities.
The Remote Workplace
COVID-19 has changed the workplace forever. According to a study by getAbstract, 43% of employees want to work remotely even when workplaces reopen. The flexibility of managing family responsibilities that include child care and elder care are factors contributing to the desire for remote work.
Time spent commuting has transformed into quality time with family. The effects of COVID-19 on the needs of elderly parents has increased the focus on caregiving activities. The importance of saving for retirement and planning for care has increased awareness. One-third of working employees provide care or coordinate care for elderly loved ones.
Are Your Managers Prepared?
It’s no secret that managers are stretching their skills to supervise employees in this new remote business environment. Clear communication, setting expectations, team building, employee engagement, and achieving goals remain important for business success.
Employees are spending less time one-to-one and more time in Zoom meetings, attending webinars, and participating in video conferences. The traditional working hours from 8 am to 5 pm are flexing to accommodate life and career goals.
What plans does your company have to address the people strategy required to pivot and succeed in this new work environment?
How The Predictive Index Builds Success
The Predictive Index is a people data tool that can help your company update corporate strategy, inspire employees, match the right people to the right jobs, and diagnose workplace opportunities. The results are increased productivity, ROI, and committed employees.
In 1955, Arnold Daniels released the first PI Behavioral Assessment. Since then the assessment has been updated to keep up with changes in workplace practices and applications. Today the PI framework helps senior leaders align their business strategy and people strategy using the discipline called “talent optimization.”
Strategies to empower people can be implemented at every level of a company. The best people strategies come from within and build upon the strengths of individuals within organizations.
