How it all started
For decades, the job interview has been the mysterious “black box” of the recruitment process. A place within four walls, where no one really knows what happens, or how hiring decisions are being made. But not anymore. Introducing Tengai, the interactive and social job interview software that marries 20 years of experience in unbiased recruitment with the latest AI technology. This recruitment tool conducts scientific and objective job interviews to find better-matched candidates. Tengai mitigates bias, creates a more fair recruitment process, and delivers structured job interview data.
Mitigate job interview bias
Studies show that even before the recruiter asks a single question about the candidate’s skills and competency, many already have perceived opinions that color their judgment. Today, there are several diversity and inclusion software that help assess blind resumes. Most recruiters and hiring managers are aware that the job interview is the part of the recruitment process with the most bias. But up until now, there haven’t been any objective tools to change this. Which makes the job interview a risky step in the recruitment funnel. For example, did you know?
- 33 % decide who to hire within 90 seconds after meeting a candidate
- 55 % decide who not to hire already at the first handshake
- 40 % might reject a candidate if they don’t like the way they smile
- 71 % have rejected a candidate based on their tattoos
For this reason, candidates’ clothes, style of walking, make-up, tone of voice, and how they act before the interview are all factors that might ruin their chances for a job. No matter how talented, well-educated and suited for the job they are.
