Here are five benefits you can expect when you add the PXT Select to your hiring process.
For most companies, human resources is their biggest investment. Which is why you must know the answer to this question:
Is this candidate a good fit for this job?
Whether you are considering an internal promotion or an external hire, The PXT Select helps you make smarter selection decisions with confidence by comparing a specific candidate to the specific thinking style, behaviors, and interests required for a job.
The PXT Select creates a selection report that features tailored interview questions and tips on “what to listen for” with each candidate so that hiring managers can explore potential challenges and strengths that they might not otherwise be aware of.
These challenges and strengths can make the difference between poor, average, and outstanding performance.
Want to get the most out of everyone?
What would be the value of coaching advice tailored to each employee?
The fastest way to improve the productivity and profitability of your company 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 compares a person to a position and 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.
Relationships are complicated, aren’t they?
This is especially true when we put individuals with different thinking styles, behaviors, and interests together on a team. Then we expect them to work together under pressure and deadlines to produce outstanding outcomes.
Unfortunately, even if everyone on the team has the best of intentions and makes their best effort, conflict and lost productivity can result from difficult to understand interactions that most managers don’t have the training to diagnose and manage.
Use the PXT Select to predict how a potential candidate fits an existing team, or analyze your current team’s dynamic and strengths.
There’s an old saying (supported by modern research): people quit their managers, not their jobs.
Because everyone is an individual, every employee and manager will have different interactions based upon the way that they think, their behaviors, and what they like and don’t like. There is no such thing as “one size fits all” management.
The best managers who have the lowest turnover have the ability to understand each person as an individual and adapt their management style to the individual. But unfortunately, most managers don’t have the ability to do this without outside guidance.
The PXT Select can help by comparing any manager to any employee and give the manager specific insights and advice on how they can most effectively manage the team member.
The best way to keep your best people is to build engagement and commitment by giving your top performers internal opportunities for development and promotion.
The PXT Select can answer the question: "Where else will this person fit?" and provide you will the information you need to coach and develop them to their full potential.
Many top performers have thinking styles and behaviors that can be
applied to many different jobs - and a good way to keep them excited
about the future is to proactively uncover internal opportunities and
offer to train them.
When you do this, there is no need for them to consider the calls they get from outside recruiters because they are happy and engaged working for you.
