PDQ Case Study Corvirtus



PDQ began using a Ready-to-Implement Corvirtus employment development solution to identify high-performing candidates. After seeing great success, they wanted a solution customized to their culture and expectations for customer service. To develop a more precise solution, PDQ participated in a validation study where participants completed a variety of assessments, including an employee development assessment, and their supervisors completed evaluations of their performance tailored to PDQ’s definition of success. This allowed Corvirtus to “test the tests” and build an assessment that best predicts all key areas of performance.

“Corvirtus provides a very simple, easy-to-use product that anyone can understand. The solution makes immediate decisions on fit and whether a person can make it to the next interview or not. There is incredible power with that type of solution.”

Steve Erickson, President, PDQ

Streamlining the hiring process, highlighting pertinent candidate qualifications

PDQ’s employment development assessment measures a candidate’s mental horsepower to learn quickly and solve problems (cognitive ability) as well as how the candidate’s personality aligns with PDQ’s unique values, brand, and expectations. Operator-friendly reports allow leaders to confidently and quickly make decisions, saving time and money.
