Lori Gorrell is an Independent PXT Select Authorized Partner who believes strongly that employee engagement starts with the hire.

If you make the right hire, your company culture will match the person. This belief aligns with PXT Select’s core functions:
• To help fill the gap between the resume and the interview.
• To make very human decisions about hiring smarter and simpler.

The Human Side of Hiring


  • Smart Hiring Solutions

    PXT Select™ provides you with actionable data about candidates in a simple to understand format that can help you to interview better and hire smarter.
    The system involves a suite of reports that are designed to help you select, onboard, coach and develop employees. During candidate selection, a report will help to determine whether a candidate is a good match and should be interviewed, beyond relying on his or her resume alone to make such a determination. But the reports don’t end at the hire—they will continue to help the candidate develop into the position after being hired.
