Who are we? Hire people, not resumes

Traditional recruitment methods like CV screening and experience requirements introduce bias into the hiring equation. This presents recruiters with the impossible task of identifying great talent based on their own subjective perceptions, which significantly reduces their chances of finding the right person for the role.

Therefore at Alva Labs, we offer digital, data-driven candidate assessments that objectively filter and rank applicants based on their job potential and suitability, rather than their personal characteristics and “gut feeling”. We believe inclusive recruitment is a science. Companies hire people, not resumes and cover letters, so employers need a concrete, evidence-based understanding of what professional success really looks like. And that’s where we come in.

How do the assessments work?

Alva Labs’ team of psychometricians have developed two industry-leading candidate assessments: Logic and Personality. These tests can be performed together or separately and take 25-30 minutes to complete, with results available immediately in the form of a report. For the recruiter, candidates are automatically ranked by role fit based on their results, saving them time and money.

In addition to streamlining the process, Alva Labs helps hiring managers hire with more confidence. Our assessments are more than twice as accurate as CV screening at predicting job performance, meaning companies can reduce the number of interviews by up to 50% and still make better hiring decisions. The tests combine AI and machine learning with psychometrics and organizational psychology to streamline the hiring process and create a better, more meritocratic experience for both recruiters and applicants.

We also believe in empowering the candidate. Because of this, the test result data belongs to the applicant, not the company they are applying for, and they can use their results for other applications, saving them the time and hassle so often associated with job hunting.

UK Launch: Promoting Equality and Diversity in the UK Labor Market

In 2021, Alva Labs launched in the UK, bringing our non-judgmental solution to the UK job market. With companies hiring here as fast as possible since 2013, our solution to the systemic issues companies and candidates face could not have been more timely.

We know that companies that base hiring decisions on data rather than personal opinion are able to hire with greater accuracy and diversity. Alva Labs levels the playing field for all applicants, including those from minority backgrounds, by promoting equality in the selection process and reducing human bias early in the hiring process.

Our ultimate goal at Alva Labs is to make the global job market a fairer and more efficient place for everyone. How shall we do it? One candidate evaluation after another. Startup Profile: Alva Labs – TechRound
