Dedicated Executive Search – The intelligent alternative to retained executive search


At PXT Select, our mission is to help organizations improve their performance and workforce productivity by helping you connect business strategy to talent strategy in a way that is ‘Simple. Human. Smart.’ And you know what? That’s a great way to the describe the content you can expect from our new blog, Fit 4 Hire.

With this blog, we’ll help you stay on top of the latest talent selection practices, tips, success stories, and trends, so you can take your talent recruitment strategy to the next level. Here’s what you can expect:


 – Look for short, easy-to-read pieces that provide insight without getting too far into the weeds. No, this material will not be on the assessment! We do want it to be valuable, of course, but we think there’s value in brevity.


 – While finding, hiring, and keeping the best contributors is serious business, one of the goals of this blog is to remember the humanity of our work. Every decision, whether it’s to hire or not to hire, has a human being on the other end. We believe in putting people first. With that in mind, we want to have a little fun with this blog. There’s a lot of heart in light-heartedness.


 – The practice of talent selection is in constant flux. It’s our job to keep up with the latest trends and best practices, so when we read or hear something we think you’ll find interesting we’ll pass it along in this space. We want this blog to be an instrument to share ideas.

Thanks for visiting our new blog. Come back again soon. We’ll try to give you something new every week.
