Plum Talent Model

What is the Plum Talent Model?

Talents are recurring patterns of thought, feeling and behavior. Often referred to as "soft skills," Talents represent our innate abilities and how we are hardwired as humans.

Plum reveals people's Talents with a single psychometric assessment that measures personality, social intelligence and problem-solving ability. While job titles, past experience and education merely show what a person has done in the past, Talents can actually predict what someone is capable of achieving in the future. They are 4X more predictive of future job success than what you'll find on a resume.
