What we do

An ATS that removes bias

Applied is on a mission to become the essential platform for unbiased hiring. We were born out of the UK Government's Behavioural Insights Team, a leading global consultancy. One of our founding principles is that incorporating behavioural science into hiring removes opportunities for bias so the most talented candidates can emerge.

Our hiring platform is purpose-built to enable organisational accountability and fuel an enjoyable, fair experience for everyone in the talent ecosystem, from candidate to hiring manager.

How we do it

Anonymised, skill-based hiring assessments

Despite our best intentions, humans are less-than-perfect at making decisions. Studies show that the tools we have traditionally used to aid our decision-making — like CVs, unstructured interviews, and network connections — only exacerbate these embedded biases.

Our ATS uses unbiased recruitment to surface vital talent that would have otherwise been missed. This includes anonymising applications, leveraging a skills-based methodology, and building transparency and analytics into every step of the process..
