Key Talking Points:

Who?

Pneuma (pron: nooma) Advantage is a division of The CompuTrek Group, Automotive Management Systems, Coaching & Training. Together they have partnered with one of the largest global assessments company to provide businesses with a 99.9% reliable and high validity assessment used to understand their candidates and employees. Using reliable, validated solutions to address your key talent management issues, Pneuma Advantage can deliver immediate results via clear, actionable reports that also provide interview questions.

What? Two Important Assessments

  1.     The Step One Assessment is a very cost-effective, brief, 15-min pre-evaluation of an individual to determine whether or not you wish to consider them further. Basically, a screening tool early in the candidate selection process. It is scientifically designed to assess a candidate in areas of Integrity, Reliability, Work Ethic, and Substance Abuse tolerance.

It also gives you valuable interview questions that CAN be asked during an interview directly related to their answers as well as a distortion rate which can tell you whether or not they answered consistently.

  1.     The PXT Select Assessment measures how well an individual fits a specific job(s) in your company. The ‘job matching’ feature is unique because it enables the manager to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to successfully perform in a specific job. It is used throughout the employee life cycle for selection, onboarding, managing and strategic workforce planning.

The PXT will exponentially help you as well in Pre-Hiring during the interview and selection process. It identifies people who have the highest probability of being successful in a role and provide practical recommendations for maximizing performance. We also provide a Coaching Report that will give you pinpoint accurate interview questions and tips directly related to areas that new candidates (or current employees) are OUTSIDE of a ‘top performer’ pattern for any one position and how hard you and they will have to work at getting them to the place you want them to be operating at.

This report will also clarify additional training an individual may need thus, GREATLY reducing the interview time.

It measures cognitive scale, behavioral characteristics, and whether or not the job they are applying for is a top interest. It shows you how to use this knowledge to increase employee performance and ensure you have a great fit to ensure you have the most thorough view of the respondent’s data and who they are at core level.

Where?

All assessments are completely online, anywhere there is an internet connection. They can also be completed by hand, but need to be done in person. Booklets are available for the Step One only because the PXT Select is adaptive and will provide next level questions contingent on the previous questions the candidate/employee chose. No two questions the same for each individual.

When?

Anytime you are hiring, on boarding or succession planning within your company.

Why Assessments?

There is a very real need to support businesses to enhance the eco-system of their organization through it's greatest asset...PEOPLE. In this age of information, ‘job fit’ high validity assessments support managers in their pre-hire, on-boarding, succession planning and leadership development process.

Pneuma Advantage helps businesses leverage and streamline their hiring process and leadership goals by positively affecting your company’s bottom line with activated, engaged and productive employees…the LIFELINE of a healthy business culture.
