"Sapphire Consulting is the most effective training consultant that we have used. Jim Kimberly brings passion, energy and humor to the job and really understands our people and our company. He doesn't train 'by the book'. He's willing to look at what works and what doesn't work for our company or even for individual groups and then he customizes his training to meet our needs."

Session Description:
How often have we selected a candidate based upon our gut, our good friend or our general excitement that we finally have a candidate that looks good? How often do we learn later that their thinking styles, behavioral traits or general interests were not in alignment with our company?
The costs of a bad hire are in dollars (typically 1.5 x compensation) and in the overall stress it puts on the firm. Leaders and managers have to step in to write estimates, manage projects and difficult customers because of open positions.

Come Learn about the PXT Select™ assessment, which measures how well an individual fits specific jobs in your organization. The “job matching” feature of PXT Select™ is unique, and enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to perform successfully in a specific job. It is used throughout the employee life cycle for selection, on-boarding, managing and strategic workforce planning. This assessment reveals consistent, in-depth and objective insight into an individual’s thinking and reasoning style, relevant behavioral traits and occupational interests. This helps you to match the employee to specific jobs in your organization.

PXT Select™ helps your managers interview and select people who have the highest probability of being successful in a given role, and provides practical recommendations for coaching them to maximum their performance. It also gives your organization consistent language and metrics to support strategic workforce and succession planning, talent management and re-organization efforts.
