Municipality trends: Digitalization

The public sector is using more and more technology to ensure quality and increase efficiency. Because having analog processes makes it challenging to keep track of candidate data and follow GDPR regulations. Developing a digital hiring method collects all information in one place and assists recruiters with structured data. This makes it possible to quickly identify matches between candidates and jobs, so you select candidates with the right competencies to invite for the first interview. Our standard plan always includes the option to customize and add screening questions. 

State and local hiring

The Upplands-Bro Municipality faced urgent recruitment challenges and difficulties due to the Corona pandemic. Especially critical was the pool of substitutes for care and welfare positions, where the need continues to increase. To scale efficiently and reduce the risk of bias at the interview stage, Tengai was implemented to screen potential new employees. By automating the screening interview, it became possible to interview hundreds of applicants in just a couple of days. So all candidates could be included in the process.

Recruit and hire top talent

In the wake of Covid-19, recruiters in the public sector noticed that candidates actually preferred to have a digital screening interview when they started implementing physical interviews again. Many job seekers like the flexibility and having a digital meeting to understand if they are interested in the position. When municipalities use Tengai, they are perceived as innovative and ahead of their time. This attracts new talents that otherwise might be missed. With Tengai, there is no need to coordinate busy schedules, and every applicant is assured to get instant feedback after completing the screening interview. Candidates also appreciate the bias-free interview and how they never are judged by what the clothes they wear or how it looks in the room where they are sitting.
