TNG Recruitment Service Tengai First Select

TNG Group AB has been working with unbiased recruitment, or objective rescruitment, for over 15 years. 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.

When using Tengai the recruitment process has proven to be more effective, data-driven and cost-efficient.
