Hire the best people for today and tomorrow

Over the next few years, 25% of all current roles will disappear. Over 50% will require completely new skill sets. 

To stay competitive, companies need to rethink their recruitment process. You need a toolkit to assess both hard skills & experience (Readiness), as well as the underlying soft skills, personality traits & motivation (Potential). This is fundamental to overcome the growing competency gap, and a cornerstone in how we build the Alva platform.
