  • Map a workforce hiring strategy—“If you don’t know where you’re going, you end up somewhere else."

    Hiring employees who fail to perform to expectations is costly and disruptive. What's the solution? PXT Select helps employers accurately define and communicate the demands of the role during the recruiting process, and then assesses candidate fit. Without an objective tool, hiring teams rely heavily on gut instincts and superficial information, which could lead to poor hiring decisions.

    After understanding your organizational goals, we'll work together to develop a workforce selection strategy that is aligned with your culture and the essential attributes that drive success in each of your positions. You'll gain objective, predictive information on how well candidates and current employees meet positional demands and increase recruitment and hiring ROI.

    After all...

  • Cultivate an extraordinary workforce and culture—find the right people with the PXT Select

    People matter! Culture matters! The PXT Select helps you find the right people for the job and is critical in helping you build a culture that attracts the best and keeps them.

    Great organizations are built on more than lofty ideals. They're built on great actions. Disconnects between what is said and what is actually done erodes trust and leads to a disengaged workforce, low morale and high turnover.

    Culture can always be transformed and improved. Working with you, we can assess the strengths and vulnerabilities of your current culture, as seen through the eyes of your employees. Their input provides illuminating perspective regarding the work environment and leadership practices. This critical information serves as a compass to help you successfully reach your organizational goals.

    By creating an aligned culture, the following thought is rendered impossible...
