Opening up the Black Box of Recruitment
Tengai’s Job Interview Mitigates Unconscious Bias
Unbiased by design, Tengai is a fully automated, physical interview robot with a D&I software powered by 15 years of experience in unbiased recruitment. When integrated into the recruitment process, the social AI-robot objectively assesses soft skills and personality traits through blind interviews. Tengai’s natural language processing engine and interview analytics assist recruiters and hiring managers to make better hiring decisions. In addition, the robot interview delivers a more honest, fair, and exciting candidate experience.
Tengai communicates in a dialogue form. Which means speaking, listening, confirming, and showing emotions.
The Diversity & Inclusion software objectively assesses soft skills and measures personality traits.
Tengai doesn’t take appearance, age, gender or background into account. Only the candidates' answers matter.
Analytics and Transcripts
Tengai produces interview transcripts with structured data that supports data-driven, objective hiring decisions.
More Diverse Teams
Tengai isn’t influenced or colored by unconscious bias. This means she won't notice an applicants' age, gender, looks, or background. The robot interview is equal to a blind interview. In other words, an interview where the assessment only will be based on competency and skill set. Nothing else. When you integrate Tengai into a recruitment process, it is possible to mitigate unconscious bias. In this way, new talents get a chance to show their potential. And this is crucial. Especially since 73% of job seekers say they have experienced discrimination during a job interview. This according to research from TNG.
Fair Candidate Experience
The blind robot interview and Tengai’s human-like behavior enables an environment where job applicants can be themselves. Not who they think the recruiters want them to be. Actually, 50% of job seekers who met Tengai say they can be more honest during the robot interview. By utilizing this HR Tech tool in order to mitigate job interview bias, it is possible to create a more fair and unbiased candidate experience. It will help improve your employer brand, as it becomes more credible and attractive to candidates.
Data-Driven Hiring Decisions
Tengai screens and evaluates for soft skills and personality traits. As a result, hiring managers receive objective interview transcripts and structured data. Something that helps them make better hiring decisions with scoring capability. While data-based evaluation is crucial in the recruitment process, 57% of hiring managers today lack tools and struggle to measure soft skills in an objective way. All according to data from LinkedIn.
Time and Cost Efficiency
Tengai never has a bad day. She can't get hungry and won't be tired by the end of the day. This creates a more efficient recruitment process. In other words, using AI-robot will have a big impact on your everyday business. Especially since the time managers spend on interviews have almost doubled the past 10 years, according to a report from Glassdoor. Tengai frees up time for recruiters and hiring managers to engage with candidates during all stages of the recruitment funnel. In this way, the social robot helps to keep the human relationship where we need it the most.
The job interview is one of the most important stages of the recruitment process. But it is also a risk zone, since it is under major influence of bias. Meaning that a human recruiter or hiring managers’ unconscious bias affects how a job seeker is perceived during an interview.
For example, studies show that during a job interview we make judgments about other people based on their handshake, tone of voice or lack of eye contact.
