PDRI Capabilities under HCaTS

For more than 45 years, PDRI has been a leading source of research-based innovation and strategies for addressing the human capital management needs of government clients. Our pragmatic, performance-based solutions have been used in virtually every large-scale human capital management reform effort in the federal government. Our talent management solutions help agencies hire, train, develop, manage, and motivate high-performance cultures. Custom services offered by PDRI through HCaTS include:

Assessment and Hiring: Organizations with the most successful hiring programs go beyond assessing job skills to assess candidate fit with their organization’s unique values and culture. Our candidate-centric, brand-enhancing assessments provide unrivaled psychometric underpinnings and validity. We bring powerful and transparent assessment science, AI applications, and predictive analytics to ensure evidence-based, fair, objective, and accurate decisions across the talent management life cycle.

Leadership Development: Our assessments and development programs help leaders understand how they can best enable performance by considering their leadership context, pinpointing critical challenges, and identifying characteristics that are most critical for success.

Performance Management: There is no “one-size-fits-all” performance management process that works well for every situation. Instead, performance management needs to be designed to fit the strategy, goals, context, and maturity of each organization. We design performance management processes that are ideally suited to our clients’ organizational contexts and help them embed the mindset, behaviors, and real-time practices that matter most in driving high performance.

Skill Identification, Job Analysis, and Competency Modeling: We’ve analyzed thousands of jobs and can efficiently identify the skill requirements, conduct small- and large- scale job analyses, and develop competency models to fit your requirements.
