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.

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.
