The collaboration with Alva Labs means that all talents who in the future apples for a position at Unibap will take their science-based tests.

“For us, the collaboration means that we get an incredibly good basis for our recruitment process and also get more time to spend on interviews with candidates. We get a neutral objective test as a complement to the personal meeting with the candidate in an interview,” Lena elaborates.

How do the tests work then? Kajsa Asplund from Alva Labs tells more.

“We combine established psychological tests based on the 5-factor method with machine learning and AI. Our tests are automatic, validated, easy to complete for candidates and can be used to assess personality and logical ability in a few minutes. For an innovative company like Unibap Our tests provide an opportunity to see how a candidate fits into the team and that they receive an independent assessment that is not affected by bias. It is important that our tests can not only be used for the recruitment of new employees, but also for the internal recruitment, that is when it comes to finding the right internal candidates,” says Kajsa Asplund, Lead People Science at Alva Labs.
