Listen to the Alva community

We use Alva in all of our recruitments, and it's made such a difference. Today, so many more 'wild cards' get a chance in our processes, and many more junior candidates as well. In some of our recruitments, I never would have managed without Alva. It's been absolutely vital to handle the screening without spending days and days

Jessica Svahnström Columbus

Our Stockholm office was onboarded within a few days. Because the platform is intuitive, we didn’t need to conduct complicated training. We can now objectively and accurately measure the potential of candidates and there has been a noticeable jump in the quality of candidates we’re interviewing.

Per Thunberg Head of Talent Acquisition, Zound Industries

We used to have a logic test that was really hard to administer - it was a late step in the process and often we needed to oversee the candidates doing it in an online interview. This was the direct push for us to look into a new system

TA Partner, Anyfin

Our selection process is now based on something quantifiable and the people we are meeting for first interviews have a higher general level of quality, and are a better match with our job criteria and organization.

Per Tjernberg Talent Acquisition Manager, Knightec

Alva Labs has made hiring easier for us in multiple ways! We have good confidence that the whole product is based on evidence. The mechanic weighting of all the data and the setup with test profiles is brilliant. It makes the decision about what candidates to move forward within the process a lot easier.

Marie Larsson Production Administrator, Arla

After we started working with Alva, we had to change our recruitment process drastically. It was a whole different experience for us, but we feel much more secure that the compatibility is higher and more evidence-based.

Sam Joukhadar Head of Talent, SEB

Ellen actually looked into her time spent and by using Alva for all of these roles she's saved literally 1.5 days a WEEK in recruitment time during her busiest weeks. She's also been able to interview and move forward with quite a few candidates she said would probably never have gotten through screening before

General Mental Ability, or Logical Ability, is proven to be one of the best predictors of job success. Built using Modern Test Theory, our adaptive logic assessment is completed in around 15 minutes. Tasks are challenging – but not impossible – for everyone taking the assessment.
