If you need help with the hiring practices of your financial advisory firm, we have good news for you.

Ironstone is proud to add innovative new selection assessment PXT Select™ to our offerings! The new hiring assessment empowers organizations like yours to navigate the competitive talent landscape with confidence and ease.

You’ve often heard that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and many businesses have experienced the reality of this circumstance the hard way. Who wants to onboard an employee based on a brief interview process only to either regret the decision or announce their early departure?

“We are proud to partner with Ironstone to bring this new assessment to market”, said Scott Allison, Vice President and Director at Wiley. “Our partners are trusted advisors to their clients and have a powerful impact on organizations.
