It’s finally here, the English version of Tengai, making it possible for HR-managers and recruiters all over the world to perform English unbiased job interviews with our latest release. The new release has been scientifically validated, has an automated personality scoring, as well as an interview analytics audio scoring – which gives hiring managers deeper insights of jobseekers profiles, without human interference.
With the English release ready it’s now possible for international companies to lease Tengai and implement unbiased blind interviews as part of their recruitment success.
“The English version is an important part of our offering and the international demand and interest for the unbiased interviewer Tengai has been consistent over the last year, therefore we are super happy to reveal that we now have an English version of Tengai ready for the market. With the updated software and framework that also follows the new release, Tengai can truly make a difference in how companies recruit and evaluate talents,” says Tengai’s CEO, Elin Öberg Mårtenzon.
Digitizing the interview and mitigating unconscious bias
For the first time ever, it’s now actually possible to digitize the interview, using Tengai’s unbiased methodology, making the process more objective, structured and data-driven. By using the social robotics platform, Tengai is free from visual interpretations often caused by subconscious assumptions and creates a more fair interview process for all applicants.
“Normally during an interview, the recruiter has a hard time writing everything down in a fully structured way, making us go to our assumptions in the interpretation of the candidates’ answer. That doesn’t only result in a lack of interview data but also creates a possibility for the data to be skewed. With the full data collection from the interview, the recruiter can now use the added audio scoring to evaluate the candidate’s answer and then co-evaluate the information together with multiple stakeholders, making the recruitment and interview process less biased,” says Sinisa Strbac, Chief Product Officer at Tengai AB.
About Behaviour Indicator (BI)
The behaviour indicator uses a method with past behaviour questions, asking open-ended questions where the candidate is being asked to describe situations from where they have used a specific skill, how they used it and what the results of their actions were. The candidate’s answer is generated into an audio file for the recruiter to evaluate from specified definitions in Tengai Audio Scoring.

Tengai is a Stockholm-based HR Tech startup that is combining AI and an unbiased recruitment methodology in the world’s first interview robot, Tengai.
The social robot is enhancing the candidate experience, freeing up time and helping recruiters and hiring managers in making objective hiring decisions. The robot was originally a collaboration between recruitment and staffing agency TNG, who programmed the diversity and inclusion software at the TNGx innovation lab, and Furhat Robotics, who built the robotics platform and OS where Tengai’s application is running. Today, Tengai AB and Furhat Robotics continue to partner and develop the next generation of unbiased interview tools.
