BOSTON, January 7, 2020Straightline Consulting Group, and The Predictive Index (PI), the leader in talent optimization, are excited to celebrate significant milestones following the close of 2019.

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."
