The PXT Select Solves These Problems

Find More Qualified Employment Candidates

Not Enough Qualified Candidates

If you have ever struggled to find qualified candidates, the PXT Select can help!

Without a doubt, this is the biggest challenge faced by organizations in the new decade. There are no longer enough qualified candidates available for the number of jobs available.

We can help you solve this problem by using the PXT Select Performance Model for any position to write a job posting that will attract qualified candidates because the job you are describing perfectly matches their behaviors, interests, and motivations.

What To Ask In The Interview

Interviewing takes practice and experience, but most hiring managers only interview a few times each year.

Even experienced HR professionals can benefit from the targeted interview questions generated by the PXT Select when it compares a candidate to the requirements of the job.

You can still use your existing process and questions, just add the PXT Select interview questions to make sure you explore all of the potential strengths and weaknesses that will impact the success of the candidate.

Engage and Retain Top Performers

Employee Engagement and Retention

Even better than hiring high quality new people is keeping the ones you already have!

Unfortunately, your best people are the ones who are most likely to leave because they are highly qualified and being recruited by your competitors.

The PXT Select can help you retain existing top performers by providing team optimization, coaching advice, career pathing  and succession planning. It's the first complete employee lifecycle assessment and everything is included.

Expect These Benefits From The PXT Select

Make Your Life Easier and Your Business More Profitable

Slash Costly Turnover

As you know, sourcing, recruiting, hiring, and training is more expensive than ever before, so it's critically important to reduce turnover by making sure that every hire fits their position.

PXT Select Job fit technology reduces turnover because when someone "fits" their job, they don't think about leaving and they become impervious to headhunters – even if they are offered more money.

And... they work harder, are more productive, and don't waste management time.

Use The PXT Select To Reduce Turnover

Solve People Problems

People are complex and challenging to manage, aren’t they?

Fortunately, the PXT Select can help. Coaching and Management reports which reveal how to best manage each person in your organization are built-in.

Use them to help managers to get off to a strong start with new employees or to improve their relationship with individuals they are already managing.

Create Outstanding Teams

What if you could predict how well someone will fit into an existing team – or solve current team problems?

The PXT Select Team Report will help your team leaders and team members understand their similarities and differences so they can address the group’s dynamics in a constructive way.

The Team Report is included at no cost, and can also be used for planning and selection to see how a new team member might affect team dynamics.

PXT Select Improves Team Performance
Identify Future Leaders

Build Leadership Strength

The PXT Select Leadership Report gives you invaluable insight into a candidate’s leadership potential and their approach to meeting leadership challenges.

It helps hiring managers understand how a candidate leads by revealing an individual’s key characteristics and their personal strengths and challenges as they relate to six universal Leadership Skills.

Featuring tailored questions and tips on ‘what to listen for’ with each candidate, this report gives you a meaningful edge in selecting your next leaders.

Make Everyone Better

Want to get the most out of everyone?

The best way is to take advantage of the natural strengths of each person while minimizing any problems created by their natural behaviors.

Unfortunately, few managers have the training and experience needed to to do this. Many times managers know that something is wrong, but they don’t know what it is.

To solve this problem, the PXT Select creates customized coaching advice that can be used by any manager to solve challenges and take advantage of natural strengths… and get the most out of everyone.

All successful hiring starts with accurately understanding the requirements of the job.

This includes traditional predictors of success such as education and experience as well as the harder to measure thinking style, behaviors, and interests.

Use the PXT Select Job Fit and customized interview questions features to understand and explore the strengths and weaknesses of the candidate.

PXT Select Used For Employee Lifecycle


The PXT Select uses the same data used in the the selection process to create Individual Feedback and Coaching reports that give managers insights so they can manage the new team member in ways that use their strengths and minimize their weaknesses.


Because managing is a daily activity, the Manager/ Employee report compares the natural behaviors of the manager and the employee and provides actionable management advice based upon the relationship.

Develop and Retain

The career development and succession planning reports give you objective information about how to maximize each team member's contribution to the organization.

When To Use The PXT Select

The PXT Select Adds Additional Objective Information To Your Existing Process

There is no need to change your existing hiring system.

The largest companies add the PXT Select to the very beginning of their hiring process and have candidates complete it as part of the initial application process because it helps to remove subjectivity from the initial selection process.

But, for budget reasons, most companies use the PXT Select between the first interview and the second interview.

This means that that you will use only between two and five assessments per hire at an investment of only a few hundred dollars - a great investment compared to the cost of a bad hire.

PXT Select Pricing

The PXT Select costs less than one bad hire for one day.

Employee Sleeping

Real Employee - Not An Actor

Meet Bill

Bill wasn’t exactly a “bad” employee, it’s just that he was very inconsistent and didn't get along well with others, and these aren't good qualities in a salesperson.

And... after he was hired, he developed a reputation as being “negative" – the type of person who always saw what was wrong with a situation and why things wouldn’t work.

We thought that Bill would be a superstar at sales because he had years of experience and a good track record, but he wasn't - at least not for us.

It's our experience with Bill that led us to use the PXT Select with every hire because the cost of hiring and training him was far more than the investment in a few assessments.

PXT Select ™ Performance Models

A PXT Select Performance Model Is A Snapshot of the Preferred Traits for a Given Job

PXT Select Performance Model Example

Each person and position is unique, so the PXT Select Performance model provides an easy way to compare any person to any job.

The PXT Select Performance Model shows the position’s ranges for each of the Thinking Style (cognitive abilities) and Behavioral Traits scales. For example, it indicates whether the job calls for a more urgent pace or a steadier pace.

When reviewing a candidate’s PXT Select™ assessment results, you will quickly be able to see whether the candidate falls within or outside the range for the position.

The Performance Model puts a candidate’s scores into the context of what is required to be successful in the position.


PXT Select™ Interview Questions

The PXT Select Creates Customized Interview Questions For Each Candidate

Use PXT Select generated interview questions to get real insights from every interview.

PXT Select Customized Interview Questions

If you have ever felt like candidates knew the answers to your questions before you ask, you're not alone.

To solve this problem, when the PXT Select compares a candidate to a Performance Model it automatically generates interview questions that are customized for the candidate and the position.

Questions they won't be prepared for.

Simply add these customized questions to your existing interview process and explore potential strengths and challenges in ways that give you real insights.

And… to make sure you get the deep insight you need for a successful hire, every interview question also tells you what to listen for when the candidate answers. It's like having an expert coach by your side!
