Use predictive recruitment tools to uncover real talent

The most predictive way to assess candidates is by testing their ability to actually do the job. Start doing this and you can make your hiring process 2-4x more predictive.

Trust data, not your gut

Your brain has evolved to make decisions as fast as possible. While in many situations this is helpful, it can add bias to your hiring process. Instead, use data to make quick and unbiased hiring decisions.

Penguin Random House

Known throughout the world for sharing some of the greatest stories ever told, Penguin Random House (PRH) are also leaders in how they hire. Their annual talent programme, ‘The Scheme’, is an example of a big, sometimes ‘old skool’ organisation thinking outside the box.

The Scheme helps PRH bring new talent into publishing by specifically not looking for publishing experience. It’s the type of hiring that inspired Applied in the first place. So when they asked for Applied to be the tech behind the 2017 scheme we were thrilled.
"We’ve loved the experience with Applied. It can be really tricky to handle high volumes like we get in the scheme. Applied’s simple process and scoring system allowed us to shortlist in an easy, totally objective way. As a result, we’ve met with some brilliant candidates outside of our industry and hired excellent people.

Made by Many
Made by Many, a digital product design and innovation consultancy, wants to attract and encourage more diverse talent to the digital industry.

A human-centred business, Made by Many believes improving diversity in hiring will lead to teams making better decisions. This will ultimately have a longer-lasting impact on the products and services they deliver.
We started using Applied to recruit for our internship programme, but on experiencing the radically different (and exponentially more enjoyable) process, we have started creating all of our roles on Applied. With tailored assessment criteria and blind review baked into the platform, finding people with the right aptitude as well as experience is seriously fast-tracked.

UK Government Equalities Office
The Government Equalities Office (GEO) is responsible for equality strategy and legislation across government. GEO is responsible for equality strategy and legislation across government.

Hiring is at the heart of how they commit to the values held by those who they serve. So we were thrilled when they got in touch asking us to ‘help them deliver an exemplar of open, bias free recruitment’. So far they’ve hired entry level and senior roles open to both Civil Servants and external candidates.
"Our new recruitment process has been a great success and GEO is proud to be a leader in using a tool that is in the forefront of fair recruitment.
Clare Sandling
Women in Work Team Leader
Staatslabor — a Switzerland based civic innovation lab — initially used Applied to hire for Interns.

Two of their founders, Alenka Bonnard and Danny Bürkli chose Applied because they wanted to move to a more open and fair hiring process, to ditch outdated time consuming methods and embrace their own organisational values of putting a diverse and innovation team to work on social and civil issues.
"Not being a HR specialist, l found classical recruiting practices particularly fastidious and outdated. Applied has changed everything, I really don’t see myself using any other recruitment tool now.
Alenka Bonnard
Founder - Staatslabor
