PXT Select

PXT Select™ for Hiring

Hire Candidates Using Job Fit

The Harvard Business Review (HBR) conducted a 20-year long study to determine what predictors, if any, would help hiring managers determine if a candidate could become a successful employee. This study reviewed 360,000 individuals in 14 different industries. It tested whether demographics, education, or experience could predict if a candidate would be successful.

It turned out that none of these items alone could predict if a candidate would be successful. However, the research found that if a candidate was a “good fit” for their position they would ultimately be successful within their job.

What is PXT Select?

Talent Board’s 2016 Candidate Experience Research report reveled that an astonishing 82% of companies are using some variation of a selection assessment. Unfortunately, many organizations use assessments that only measure one aspect of a candidate, such as behavior.

PXT Select™ helps to determine how well a person might fit a position based on three primary areas: thinking style, interests, and behavior. Measuring a candidate against these three areas allows hiring managers to interview more effectively and make an informed hiring decision.

Using these reports, you can compare multiple candidates’ profiles, compare a candidate against multiple positions, or even review specific interview questions based on how your candidate responded to the assessment.

Additionally, if you hired someone using the PXT Select assessment, you can continue to utilize their data in team or coaching reports and even compare them to new positions for succession planning.
