Being smaller means we must work harder, and do things better. The Predictive Placement Method (PPM) is a process developed by Myelin Resources co-founder Spencer Shaffer to quickly identify, and place technical or IT professionals into positions for long-term employment. A proprietary system, the PPM guides Myelin recruiters through three critical areas of evaluation and match-making, including a technical skills validation, a motivational assessment, and a cultural sync.

Ensuring a candidate possesses the skills on their resume is critical. This phase includes a pre-screen questionnaire, a timed skills test, and an interview with a Myelin technical screener. The emphasis on the one-on-one interview helps ensure the stated technical skills match what the hiring manager is seeking.
Myelin has found a key to a successful new hire is motivation. Long-term, high-performing employees are excited about the technology they use, and believe in the company they work for. PPM provides Myelin recruiters with a framework to evaluate personal motivation, and ensures a match with the hiring company.
Company culture, as well as team culture is evaluated and understood as a part of the PPM system. Often overlooked, a good cultural fit not only allows a new employee to quickly find a productive place at their new company, but also is a leading indicator to long-term employment.
Myelin recruiters use PPM to understand at a deep level the requirements of the company, and hiring managers, from technical skills, to motivation, and culture. When used properly, PPM is a key success factor in quickly finding the right fit for both employer and employee, and can create a long-term employment relationship.
