Hiring the right person for the job shouldn't keep hiring managers and business owners up at night. Yet, most people struggle to assess if someone is a good fit. There is a better way!

Higher Ground Consulting Group, LLC is pleased to be an Authorized Partner for PXT Select™, a validated assessment tool that helps fill the gap between the resume and the interview. It provides you with actionable data about candidates in a simple to understand format that can help you to interview better and hire smarter.

PXT Select™ is designed to take the guesswork out of hiring. You receive a simple report that helps you decide how well a candidate fits the job. The results offer a clear picture of each candidate’s cognitive abilities, behavioral traits, and interests. Matched with a researched Performance Model for the position, you now have an edge in making the right hiring decision. Custom interview questions, based on the candidate’s responses, make interviewing less stressful. You even get tips on “what to listen for” when the candidate responds. Additional reports offer managers insights about how to coach and onboard the new hire.

PXT Select™ can be used to hire candidates for positions in any organization, large or small. There are Performance Models for all types of industries from entry-level to top executive. The goal is finding the best fit for whatever position is being filled.
