Diversity Recruitment in Sweden With TNG and Tengai

In this case study you can read how TNG Group AB is using Tengai to screen candidates to become more efficient and create a fair recruitment process that promotes diversity.

TNG – unbiased recruitment and staffing

Recruitment and staffing agency TNG has been working with unbiased recruitment for over 15 years in Sweden. By focusing on data-driven, structured, and competency-based hiring, TNG has successfully developed an unbiased methodology that is turning the traditional recruitment process on its head. And it was at TNG where the idea behind Tengai was born. So no wonder it’s a favorite HR-tech tool for their internal processes. 

In 2020 TNG joined the Tengai Reseller and Partnership program, focusing on offerings for both solutions and products. Driven by our shared mission, which is to create a more sustainable labor market by taking bias out of the recruitment process. Since the launch, TNG has been using Tengai in different ways to mitigate bias early in the process and to speed up hiring. Currently, TNG implements Tengai to automate their work in their talent pipeline, for spontaneous applications and active hiring processes. 

A partnership with a mission

“With Tengai we gained a scientific way to compare and select the best candidates. Without letting gut feeling affect the decision. I am convinced that Tengai will contribute to a more sustainable labor market, which is completely in line with our vision at TNG.”

Results in Talent Pipelines

Since Tengai can interview 7 times more candidates, compared to a human recruiter, TNG has used the screening interview proactively for their Talent Pipelines. This helped TNG recruiters with easily finding the right candidate and quickly matching them with clients hiring needs. TNG has seen great success in using Tengai for recruiting these positions:





Marketing & Sales

Spontaneous applications

At TNG, there is a long tradition to work with spontaneous applications. Where all job-seekers that submit an application to TNG have had the option to conduct tests. Now, applicants also have the chance to have an interview with Tengai. Which is a completely automatic process, where the candidate and Tengai schedule a time for the digital meeting together. Once the digital screening interview is completed, candidates also receive direct feedback.

This has made it possible for TNG to get more insight and get to know candidates’ competencies in an unbiased way. As well as, get a more efficient screening process and AI-generated candidate recommendations.

Active hiring processes 

TNG is also implementing Tengai in several ongoing recruitment efforts all around Sweden. Especially in Stockholm and Örebro where TNG clients often want data-driven methods that are proven to be completely unbiased. Tengai also makes it possible for clients to meet with more candidates and enhances the experience at the same time. 

When all applicants can be included in the screening phase, clients become better equipped in identifying job seekers with the right competencies. But implementing Tengai has also proven to enhance organizations’ employer brand.
