Powers Resource Center partners with PXT Select™ to help organizations make
smart, data-driven hiring decisions
Boulder, Colo., August 22, 2017 – Powers Resource Center is pleased to announce that it has expanded its talent management capability with a new selection assessment tool called PXT Select™. The new hiring assessment helps organizations navigate the competitive talent landscape by providing insight into a candidate’s cognitive abilities, behavioral traits, and interests, including tips about the candidate’s potential job fit and relevant job-specific interview questions.
Powers Resource Center specializes in talent management from “pre-hire to retire” so the addition of PXT Select™ is an ideal tool to help organizations make data-driven hiring decisions.
“You can’t only rely on gut instinct when making hiring decisions and too many organizations make crucial hiring decisions based solely on impressions rather than data,” said Tara Powers, CEO of Powers Resource Center. “I am delighted to expand my offering with PXT Select™.”
PXT Select™, a Wiley brand, offers superior selection and employee-assessment solutions that fill the gap between the résumé and interview. Powered by the latest advancements in assessment technology, these research-validated tools provide actionable data about candidates in an easy to understand format that helps simplify and improve hiring processes. By identifying the most suitable candidates, organizations reduce turnover, boost employee engagement, and ultimately invest in improving their workplaces.
“We are proud to partner with Powers Resource Center to bring this new assessment to market,” said Scott Allison, Vice President and Director at Wiley. “Our partners are trusted advisors to their clients and have a powerful impact on organizations. Great organizations know that success begins with hiring the right people. By working with Powers Resource Center, organizations of all sizes experience greater insight and confidence in their hiring process.”
As part of the PXT Select™ Authorized Partner Network, Powers Resource Center can provide PXT Select™ assessment solutions to organizations throughout North America.
