We’ve all seen the science. Old hiring methods are biased and ineffective. A typical hiring funnel leaks 60% of the best candidates, mostly from under-represented backgrounds. No team can afford that, and no society should tolerate it.
Process works better than training… but systems make process scale.
So we built Applied, to make it easy for teams to hire without bias.
These mantras mean a lot to us and have much longer narratives within the team. As you'll see, some of the team have even written posts about them!
We want to empower the world to achieve higher levels of inclusivity and accessibility so that it underpins decisions from how products are designed to how employees are treated.
Trust is built with feedback, processes, and inclusivity. Trusting others at Applied means amplifying others’ voices and backing their calls. We can’t achieve great social impact without it.
Our ambition is audacious, so we take on big tasks, move fast, aim high, and continuously grow while we do it. Everyone owns the mission and can make a difference.
Investigate beyond the data to find the story and what works. We want to be true to the evidence at hand to make decisions but we aren’t paralysed to take action in the absence of it.
We're changing the world and our users are central to that mission. We have to see the world from their perspective, find blindspots and innovate for them. After all, they're our heroes.
