Texting, emailing, writing, all of this is done in natural language, and the revolution in natural language processing is changing the way organisations understand, and make use of text. Using text data as the assessment data is especially compelling when you consider the facts about texting in our everyday lives.
95% of graduates in advanced economies own a mobile phone. Research from Google has shown that Generation Z prefers texting to all other forms of communication, including messaging apps and meeting in-person. This is reflected in open rates being an order of magnitude higher for text messages – 90%. Compare that to email open rates (18%) and response rates (8%).
Analysing the behaviour of 41,314 candidates from March 2019 to March 2020, more than one third completed their assessment on mobile, with applicants saving 40% or more on time to complete it on a mobile vs a desktop.
In graduate recruitment and with growing unemployment as a result of COVID-19, humanising your recruitment means using assessments that feel human, that are empathetic and respectful to the candidate’s time and effort, that mirror how we live and work every day.
These aspects of the experience enhance trust and engagement leading to a 99% positive sentiment rating which you can feel from reading candidate feedback here.

Answering 5 open-ended questions generate at least 75 different data points about a person. These data points are extracted from their text responses, and even 200 words is enough to reveal your true character and personality.
It is the combination of NLP (a branch of AI), our unique machine-learning models and our proprietary dataset (containing 25 million words) that form the foundation of our text-based assessment.
