“Jeff, the CEO of a successful company went on an extensive search to find the perfect candidate for the job of Director of Business Development. He reviewed hundreds of resumes, interviewed numerous candidates, had his company peers interview the top candidates, designed a job description with key performance indicators and a 30-, 60-, 90-day performance review plan, and then on-boarded Sherri. He did everything right. Within days of Sherri joining the firm, Jeff had an intuition that it was not the right fit. And, by the beginning of the third month, Jeff experienced mediocrity versus excellence. Unfortunately for Sherri and maybe fortunately for Jeff, she saw the handwriting on the wall and left.”

Have you ever experienced a similar story or are you currently facing one today? You did everything right and the candidate simply did or does not fit the seat that they were seated in. Today, the ability to find the right person and determine if they are in the right seat for the job is even more difficult than it has been in the past. To add onto that, life and business are running at such a fast pace that we do not have the luxury to make the wrong decisions.  The concept of “hire slow, fire fast” is more important today than in any other time in our history.   The follow-up cost of hiring a wrong employee can be as high as 30% of their annual salary, after incurring an onboarding additional cost of more than 100% of their 1st year annual salary. Businesses simply cannot make these kinds of mistakes.     What could Jeff have done differently?   Marshall Krupp of Peer Executive Boards is certified in the use of PXT Select™, a candidate/job fit tool. PXT Select™ offers a superior selection of employee assessment tools to help organizations make smarter hiring decisions. Delivered through Peer Executive Boards, this technology-driven assessment solution empowers organizations by providing them with actionable data about the people they employ now and in the future.

PXT Select™ solutions help organizations:

  • Fill in the gaps between a resume and interview with actionable objective data
  • Identify the most suitable candidates, streamlining an effective hiring process
  • Match candidates with jobs that fit their inherent capabilities
  • Identify opportunities to enhance performance and maximize an individual’s contribution to an organization
  • Reduce turnover and boost employee engagement

Simply put, PXT Select™ can make selecting the right candidate for a job both simpler and smarter. Having the right people in the right jobs fosters a culture of happier, more engaged, and more productive employees, with a greater fit to the mission and core values of the organization.   The foundation of the 9-report PXT Select™ model is the “Comprehensive Selection Report”. With it, you can:

  • See at a glance how the candidate performed on the three sections of the assessment: Thinking Style, Behavioral Traits, and Interests.
  • Compare the candidate against a Performance Model for the position you’re trying to fill.
  • Access tailored Interview Questions and tips on “what to listen for” based on the candidate’s assessment results.

This powerful report helps you make smarter hiring decisions with confidence. Providing a thorough view of candidate data, the Comprehensive Selection Report focuses on Candidate Fit, Performance Model, and Interview Questions. These three areas equip you with the data to determine if a candidate is a good fit for the job.   While Peer Executive Boards offers Everything DiSC technology, Predictive Index assessments, and other personality, team development, and job fit systems and processes, it has been found that the PXT Select™technology is proving to fit the type of situation that Jeff and maybe you have experienced.  Remember, hire slow and fire fast!   To learn more about the PXT Select™ and other hiring tools please contact Marshall Krupp at Peer Executive Boards.
