Hire with certainty, hire for retention

Candidate Assessment Tool

Streamline the hiring process, improve the candidate experience, and increase retention rates by relying on scientifically-validated behavioral insights (instead of instincts) to find the right candidate for every role.

Inefficient hiring, lasting consequences

It’s all too easy for the wrong person to have the right resume. The hiring process can turn into an expensive and time-consuming gamble—with everything from company culture to team performance at stake.

  • Wasted resources: Sifting through a pile of resumes or sitting through interviews for not-quite-qualified candidates is a poor use of your hiring team’s time, energy, and effort.
  • Cultural misfits: Making hiring decisions based on experience and instinct may feel right, but the wrong cultural fit can have a lasting impact on team morale and engagement.
  • Lower productivity: A candidate who isn’t a good fit for a role is less likely to be satisfied with their work, and is more likely to be distracted, disengaged, or open to offers from recruiters.
  • High turnover rates: High turnover, frequent hiring, and repeated training and onboarding of new employees is disruptive to existing workflows, limiting collaborative efforts and innovation.
