  • 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...

    “If you don’t know where you’re going, you might end up somewhere else,” Yogi Berra

  • Cultivate an extraordinary culture – “What you do speaks so loudly I cannot hear what you say.”

    Culture matters! 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...

    "What you do speaks so loudly I cannot hear what you say," Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Develop exceptional performers – this would be a great place to work if it weren’t for these *@$/#!”

    People are complex! Because we're each wired differently, managing and developing employees is essential to achieving a thriving workforce and peak performance. Healthy communication and teamwork are the lifeblood of a strong culture and are fundamental to creating extraordinary organizations that reach goals and accomplish missions.

    We diagnose before we prescribe! To help you successfully drive your organization forward, we'll help you identify, understand and adapt to the unique wiring of each of your employees and its impact on relationships, communications, productivity and morale.

    From the front lines to the executive suite, no longer will you say...

    "This would be a great place to work if it weren’t for these *@$/#!"

  • Finally, leadership/management information gets real!

    Most feedback at work is from a boss to a direct report. 360 Reviews expand that feedback to allow the employee, their boss (es), direct reports, peers and others to provide feedback in critical areas, including communications, leadership, adaptability, relationships, task management, production, development of others and personal development. Areas needing attention are highlighted AND SUPPLEMENTED with pointers for improvement. There are also on line modules for areas that need strengthening.

    The impact of such information is far more constructive and more likely to strengthen performance and outcomes than any one on one review. This is a reasonable investment with outstanding returns to your organization!

  • Create Extraordinary Workplaces-- Assess, don't guess!!

    It only takes a minute to make a costly mistake! If you think you don't have time or resources to invest in selecting people most likely to meet performance expectations. you risk having to invest far more time and $$ to correcting the problems caused by inevitable mis- hires.

    We help you use validated, predictive tools to make informed selection, management and development decisions that save time money while strengthening your workforce! Dare to be great... Assess, don't guess!
