Eliminate unsuitable candidates early and with style.

softfactors screening uses a series of instruments to capture the candidates’ experience, skill levels, and personality styles. It is a 20 minutes candidate experience that results for the hiring company in a long list, distinguishing between candidates who should or should not be considered (A/B/C match). In addition, hiring managers are able to introduce themselves, using modern webcam and video technologies.


Improve fit between candidate and job.


The top candidates will participate in a 90-minute online assessment involving self description, ability testing, exercises (case studies) and video. The result is a short list of a maximum of 10 candidates rank-ordered by their “soft factor”, a score indicating whom of the candidates we recommend for hire.

softfactors provides a high quality candidate assessment at significant lower costs and at less time spent for the hiring.
