Behavioral Targets

Modeling after a top performer

If you have an existing all-star in a role, you can model your Behavioral Target after that top performer.

How to model after a top performer

  1. Select the Job you’d like to add a Top Performer to. 
  2. On the left-hand side, select Model after a top performer. 
  3. Enter the first name, last name, and email address of the employee whose behavioral pattern you want to use for this new benchmark. (Currently, you can only choose one top performer at your organization.)
  4. Select Send Assessment & Continue. The person you selected will receive an email with a link to take the PI Behavioral Assessment.  
  5. As you await the results of your selected Top Performer’s BA, the Job Target page will show as pending completion. 
  6. You will receive an email as soon as they’ve completed the assessment. 

Note: You can also use Top Performer with external parties and emails.

Applying top performer BA results

  1. Once you receive the email notifying you that your Top Performer has completed their BA, return to the software. Their data will be filled in within the “pending” section. 
  2. Click the “Show full descriptions” toggle to view their results in greater detail.
  1. You can now choose whether to set the Behavioral Target using the recommendation in the software or by using the Top Performer’s target. In both instances, you’ll see the Behavioral Target, Key Characteristics, and Common Reference Profiles. 
  2. The recommended Behavioral Target can be refined, but the Top Performer’s target cannot. 
  3. Choose which Behavioral Target you’d like to move forward with by selecting the Set as Job Target button. 
  1. The orange arrow on the left, under Benchmarks, will show which source is being used for the Job Target. You can switch between the system-generated target and your Top Performer at any time and as often as you’d like. 
  2. Once you’ve chosen which Behavioral Target you’d like to move forward with, click Let’s Continue at the bottom of the page. 
  3. Once applied, the new benchmark information based on your Top Performer’s results will include this reminder, which will be visible to all users: “We generated this Behavioral Target using [Top Performer’s] results. Keep your team dynamics in mind—your team might benefit most from someone who can balance and complement [Top Performer’s] behaviors.”


What if the top performer has already taken the BA? Can they retrieve their results? 
If your Top Performer has already completed the PI Behavioral Assessment, they can submit their Behavioral Score ID (BSID) instead of taking it again.
