My Thoughts in February 2020
The year has started in a very high pace for us at Tengai! We are welcoming a whole bunch of new colleagues and getting ready to launch our next release – where Tengai will be accessible in English and Swedish. And introducing Tengai Performance Indicator (TPI) which will be accessible through our Recruit Software. We are currently working together with clients for the final touches over the next two months we’re expecting to present a market-ready product.
We’ve also finished our study to get Tengai validated by psychometric expert Anders Sjöberg through Psychometrics, to ensure predictability and consistency, and we will share the news with you shortly. We are so excited to enter 2020 with our next release and happy clients in the pipeline. Stay tuned, because the next couple of weeks and months will be very exciting!

Tengai is recognized at Davos
So great to see Tengai mentioned (page 5) in the prestigious report Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI). Which was released earlier this year at the World Economic Forum’s conference in Davos.
This year the GTCI is focusing on the development of AI and how it is affecting the labor market. And Tengai is used as an example of “Supplying AI for Better Labour Markets” !

Science that inspires me
Here is a study published by Yale University that shows a connection betweeen bias in hiring process and the candidates’ way of speaking. It is this kind of research reminds us how important it is to use objective assessment tools to ensure a more fair interview experience. Even though, it’s almost impossible to completely mitigate bias throughout the recruitment process you now have the option to use data-driven tools to make better hiring decisions. Because recruitment decisions based on gut-feeling are inefficient, expensive and could be discriminative. This research article is based on findings from five separate studies, which all are associated to how voice and percieved social class are connected.
“Our study shows that even during the briefest interactions, a person’s speech patterns shape the way people perceive them, including assessing their competence and fitness for a job,”
