Science-based Selection

Have you, or anyone you know, ever selected someone for a role in an organization and discovered later that they were not a good fit? Have you ever watched in disbelief as a great contributor left your organization?

Placing the right person into a role in your organization is a vital element for business success. Providing them with a work environment that retains their loyalty is equally important. The right fit can make all the difference. The complex interactions between the new person, leaders, and other people on your team are central and can now be quantified and understood. Competencies and skills can be taught – synergy with your team, your organization, and its goals is more challenging. With great synergy, a team or organization can be many times more powerful than the sum of the individuals. Here’s the great news – you can now have a customized capability to match candidates for the unique needs of the roles in your organization that includes aspects that typically do not show up in resumes, reference and background checks, and interviews!

Leave the “trial-and-error” and “one-size-fits-all” approaches to selection behind and give yourself the advantage of science-based candidate selection!

With SelectInn™, you can more effectively select people that align with the needs that your organization has for roles.

Innovekt’s SelectInn System:

» Minimizes losses to your organization from selecting the wrong person for a role

» Maximizes value by quantifying and aligning who people really are with your needs for a role, your strategy, and your culture at a given time

What’s at stake?

» Tangible losses from putting the wrong person into a role can range from $15,000 to as much as $240,000*

» Intangible losses are likely much greater

» Requirements of the role “feel like a natural fit” with who the person is

Phil says, “I love to watch a person discover that their strengths and abilities are aligned with their role. Their ability to immerse in their work, and truly collaborate with team members is energizing. They, and their team, are positioned for excellence.”

What people are saying:

“Innovekt’s process clarified the personality traits that the candidate for our Section Leader role position would need to have to be most successful. We chose the person at the top of the SelectInn list, and she excelled in the job! SelectInn was a vital part of selecting the right person for our job opening.”

“First, if you begin with “who,” rather than “what,” you can more easily adapt to a changing world.” (Jim Collins, Good to Great, p. 42)

 “Developing and retaining the ‘right’ leaders and team development were of paramount importance to Mr. Donihe. Influencing members of our team to look at the world differently resulted in new and different ways to improve our value proposition.”

“Phil is committed to doing everything possible to have a positive, profound, and lasting impact on our business and company.”

“Phil’s knowledge and commitment have led to a well-organized plan for continuous improvement in our company and to maximize corporate performance. Phil has made a contribution to positive change. He knows how to communicate the benefits of change to different people and obtain the necessary resources to implement new ideas. Phil encourages the growth of team members and supports them in their efforts.”


The best tools are ones with built-in complexity and significant capability that are easy to use. Think of a smartphone or automobile.

SelectInn gives you the power to match the natural behavior preferences of candidates with the needs of roles in your organization because it provides insights using the science-based and patented Innovation Strengths Preference Indicator® (ISPI™), and the Character Foundations Assessment™ (CFA™). The ISPI was developed by Idea Connection Systems, Inc., and the CFA was developed by Peirce Group, LLC. Both companies are strategic partners of Innovekt, Inc., and the assessments are used by successful companies and organizations across the planet.

Among the uses of the ISPI are understanding how people think, decide, act, interact with others, and develop relationships. SelectInn provides practical suggestions for selection by comparing the ISPI preferences of the candidates with the profile of a great fit for the role.

Using only experience, competencies, and interview skills for selection will cause you to miss opportunities. On the other hand, the complexity of including invisible aspects of human psychology has been overwhelming – until now! SelectInn assists you to leverage the unique strengths and preferences of candidates to maximize alignment with the needs of a specific role in the culture of your organization. The resulting selection process can contribute to improving the quality of aligning who your people really are with the needs of their role in the organization!
