This platform helps recruiters conduct pre-hiring assessments across multiple skills so that they can spend time interviewing the best prospects. If you use their pre-built tests, creating an assessment should take you less than two minutes. Just share the assessment link with your candidates. While they take it at their convenience, you get the results in real-time. This startup has thousands of questions testing skills at different levels and uses AutoProctor, which has hosted millions of proctored exams to date.

PerspectAI: A game-based assessment platform for 21st century skills

Launched in 2016

Headquarters: Hyderabad

Founded by Jignesh Talasila

Key problems addressed: Boring and lengthy assessments, long and tedious screening process, quick and actionable insights on candidate-job fit

PerspectAI is an instant screening and assessment platform leveraging games, video and AI. PerspectAI helps organisations discover the true potential of candidates using their proprietary GDP model- game science, data science and people science.

Using robust psychometrics, they break-down the most relevant 21st century skills into measurable cognitive abilities, personality traits, work motives, emotional intelligence, and communication skills. While their fun and engaging games offer great candidate experience, their bias-free AI and algorithms provide multi-dimensional insights for employee productivity and retention. 

To identify the right talent, HR leaders will look for solutions that help them predict on-the-job performance of the candidates and hire the ones meeting the success criteria. And PerspectAI helps organisations with these insights. It is on a mission to bridge the potential to performance, making employment meaningful for both companies and individuals.

Personifwy is a conversational AI platform that enables managers and HR leaders through early insights, nudging them to increase candidate and employee engagement

While 92% companies are prioritising employee experience, the real need is to interpret people's voice into insights. Lack of it causes increased attrition, poor productivity and high drop-outs, leading to revenue leakage, which results in increased costs and negative brand image.

Personifwy is an end-to- end platform that captures the entire workforce lifecycle from hire to retire. With its insight to action capability, it offers a personalised digital assistant to every individual and enables leaders with the ability to draw real-time actions to areas of concern.
