Hire smart, Retain, and Promote Intelligently

Hiring the right person for a job is one of the most important things an organization does. Thinking through the hiring process and the bandwidth within which an organization wants an individual to work is important to the organization and the individual. It enables fit. Once hired, the process only begins. Onboarding is critical. Understanding how to support and effectively onboard increases the success of the new hire and increases an organization's ability to integrate the individual into the workplace. PXT's coaching suggestions are invaluable in helping organizations to effectively onboard.
PXT is also a tremendous asset when looking to promote. The interview suggestions are time-saving and enable a carefully targeted approach. Once promoted, coaching suggestions can be very useful to the manager.
