How The PXT Select Will Benefit Your Organization

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.

Increase Productivity

You know from experience that someone who fits their job is more productive because their responsibilities match their natural behaviors and the work is easier and less stressful for them.

Research reveals that employees who are well matched to their jobs are 2.5 times more productive on the job - and that the higher the level of job, the greater the gain in productivity.

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

About PXT Select Job Fit

An Overview Of How Well The Candidate Matches The Preferred Traits For A Job

The PXT SelectJob Fit percentage indicates how well a candidate aligns with the position’s Performance Model as a whole.

PXT Select Job Fit

Looking at a candidate’s fit compared to the expectations of the job can help a hiring manager determine what to ask in the next interview.

For example, when a candidate is outside one of the desired ranges, the hiring manager may want to consider how soon the candidate will need to demonstrate proficiency in that particular area or what types of opportunities the position allows for the candidate to adapt and/or refine behavior. The hiring manager may also want to use the interview questions to gather more information from the candidate and see how the individual has learned to adapt in this area in the past.

Although Overall Job Fit is an important piece of information, it should never be used as the sole data point in deciding whether to hire someone.

The PXT Select Performance Model Explained

The PXT Select Performance Model shows the position’s target ranges for each of the Thinking Style (cognitive abilities) and Behavioral Traits scales.

For example, it indicates whether the job calls for someone who can understand and process moderately complex language.

PXT Select Performance Model Example

Essentially, the Performance Model puts a candidate’s scores into the context of what is required to be successful in the position so each candidate is compared to the Performance Model for the position they are applying for.

The PXT Select has an expanding library of proven Performance Models you can put to use immediately as well as the flexibility to create customized Performance Models specific to a particular job in an organization.

In addition, any model can be quickly customized to reflect the unique culture of your organization.

Best of all? We create any Performance Models you need for you at no cost!

About PXT Select Interview Questions

The PXT Select Creates Customized Interview Questions For Each Candidate

If you have ever felt like candidates knew what questions you were going to ask 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.

Simply add these customized questions to your existing interview process and explore their 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.

PXT Select Customized Interview Questions

In this example, the assessment results indicate that the candidate tends to make decisions in a more factual manner than the position calls for.

It's possible that this behavior could be the difference between success and failure and you may not have thought to ask about it other parts of the interview.

Use this information and these interview questions to explore this potential problem with the candidate and use the "listen for" advice to evaluate the responses you get.
