The reports are easy to access, easy to read and are full of insights about candidates or employees and can be used throughout their employment cycle – from hire to retire. When managers have better information about their employees and leaders, they make better decisions and enjoy better conversations with their teams, which leads to better engagement, better productivity and greater retention.

  • Placement

  • Self-improvement
  • Coaching

PXT does not produce adverse impact on protected groups and is validated to be Age-blind, Gender-blind, and Ethnicity-blind, which makes it easy to align with the DEI strategy.

Checkpoint 360°

One of the best ways to improve employee retention is to make investments in your people, especially your leaders.

When managers and leaders operate effectively, teams and individual employees thrive, engage, and produce — but when leaders are ineffective or downright bad, organizations suffer and people leave.

CheckPoint 360° Feedback System is a powerful professional development tool. This 360-degree multi-rater feedback survey is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of executives, supervisors, and others in leadership roles.

The CheckPoint 360° combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even customers, with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback.

The CheckPoint 360° process highlights a manager’s job performance in 8 Universal Management Competencies:

  1. Communication
  2. Leadership
  3. Adaptability
  4. Relationships
  5. Task management
  6. Production
  7. Development of others
  8. Personal development

Upon completion, the Feedback System generates a custom Individual Development Plan for the participating manager, as well as coaching and management considerations for those who supervise the manager. This process helps managers identify and prioritize their own development opportunities, and in addition, helps the organization to better focus management training. The reports also proactively uncover misaligned priorities between senior executives and front-line managers by bringing management issues to the surface that could lead to low employee productivity, morale, satisfaction, and turnover.

CheckPoint 360° is administered via the Internet through our secure online survey center.

All feedback is anonymous and the process is completely confidential. For one individual or for every leader in the organization, CheckPoint 360 is an ongoing process that can be used at key intervals to monitor the progress of professional growth.

Results are presented in an easy-to-read report, which includes a section with ADA and EEOC compliant interview questions to help identify the best candidates while reducing potential litigation risks.
