CARMEL, Ind., January 29, 2020 — ADVISA, leadership development and talent optimization firm, and The Predictive Index (PI), the leader in talent optimization, are excited to celebrate significant milestones following the close of 2019. Indianapolis-based ADVISA, a leading PI Certified Partner for nearly 34 years capped off 2019 with double-digit percentage revenue growth, while The Predictive Index celebrated 30% year-over-year revenue growth.
ADVISA leverages The Predictive Index’s new strategy and engagement solutions PI Design and PI Diagnose, along with PI’s existing hiring and management solutions to help customers align their business strategy with their talent strategy. In 2019, The Predictive Index won the Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Award for making the Best Advance in Unique HR or Workforce Management Technology with its new strategy solution, PI Design.
“2019 marked the dawning of a new era in in designing and executing meaningful talent strategies for us,” said ADVISA President Heather Haas. “Our data-driven approach to leadership development and talent optimization enables companies to drive change by building better leaders. The ROI on this investment is unprecedented. With 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring every day, companies who are building leadership capacity for the future wield a distinct competitive advantage.”
“Last year we took a risk and invested in something bigger than ourselves,” said Mike Zani, CEO of The Predictive Index. “Starting the year off with a $50 million investment from General Catalyst allowed us to completely align The Predictive Index platform to serve the discipline of talent optimization. Talent optimization has dramatically changed our business, and it's exciting to see the discipline take hold in the market. I couldn’t be prouder of the strong foundation we built in 2019 and look forward to a year of hypergrowth and delivering even more customer value in 2020."
