How does it work?

Candidate screening has progressed

One of the biggest recruitment challenges for any company is to screen candidates in an efficient and engaging way. The goal of the candidate screening process in recruitment is to efficiently sort through the hundreds, or even thousands of resumés to identify the best candidates, foster diversity in your candidate pool, and enforce fair hiring practices. While the screening phase is a critically important part of the hiring process it is also time-consuming and tedious for recruiters.

Introducing Tengai

Tengai is developed to streamline the screening phase by guiding candidates through a structured interview and collecting relevant data. With Tengai's structured interview data, you can compare candidates' personality fit and identify the right candidates to have face-to-face interviews with. At the same time as you are creating a more interactive and fun candidate experience. The Tengai avatar is the interface between our recruitment platform, Tengai Recruiting Hub, and our candidate platform Tengai Talent Hub.


How Tengai saves you both time and money

The process

1. Customize your assignment

Create your assignment, add classic screening questions adapted to different roles, and customize the personality categories. By choosing what personality traits you consider significant for the role in mind, you will get more specific interview analytics.

2. Let Tengai guide candidates through a structured screening interview

Tengai empowers candidates to have the screening conversation on their own terms. Either instantly when applying, or at a later time. Our platform seamlessly adapts to both mobile and desktop devices, without any downloads or waiting. Tengai always gives candidates the option to do a trial interview and sends personalized feedback to each applicant to ensure an engaging candidate experience.

The structured interview framework measures the candidate's soft skills, past behavior, and competencies and includes classic screening questions that you have selected. The framework was developed by a team of diverse HR professionals with over 20 years of experience in unbiased recruitment and is validated by psychometric experts to objectively measure future work performance

Tengai has been trained to have human-like qualities and exercises “human” cues, like nodding, blinking, and listening. Our AI uses NLU, which allows it to understand and interpret human language as it is spoken. To ensure a fair assessment, Tengai conducts "blind interviews" and does not have any access to candidates' personal data or uses facial recognition software to remove any possible discrimination based on appearance. The bi-directional conversation is available in both English and Swedish.

3. Scientific shortlist

Once the first interview is completed, you gain access to a shortlist where you can compare candidates' personality fit. The structured data makes it easy to identify the right candidates to have face-to-face interviews with. Dig deeper into your candidates' potential and how each applicant matches the selected parameters. Listen to candidates' audio answers, in a playlist format, and learn how they’ve handled specific situations. Adding, removing, or changing screening questions or adjusting your parameters is easily done in the Tengai Recruiting Hub.
