Finding the change-makers
For teams with big ambitions, every hire matters. Alva helps recruiters quickly and confidently spot the applicants most likely to perform well on the job. Move faster to the interview stage by using our unbiased candidate assessment tool, so you can find the difference-makers you need to scale your business. Alva help recruiters to:
- Move quicker to the interview stage.
- Improve candidate experience and reduce drop-off.
- Increase the success rate of each hire.
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.
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.
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
