Key Takeaways

  • Pymetrics addresses the problems of inefficiencies, bias, and poor matches that arise when relying on common screening practices, such as resume review and interviewing.
  • In the Pymetrics interview system, candidates are all asked the same job-related questions and can watch videos from the workplace to put the questions into context. Candidates can record their answers as many times as they want, and choose to use their video or not, in an effort to reduce bias.
  • Pymetrics works with employees to find the position with the best fit within the company, or across other companies in the Pymetrics system.

Pymetrics was founded in 2013 and now partners with more than 60 companies to use artificial intelligence for better hiring practices. Pymetrics focuses on reducing bias in the screening process and using data to find the best fit for increased retention.
