This is Cognisess
Cognisess was started in the beautiful Roman city of Bath by two friends who wanted to help people better understand their talent and potential.
They wanted to bring objectivity and science to the old ways of recruitment and employee performance. And they wanted to do with software that was easy to use and affordable for all.
Assessments played and counting...
Cognisess assessments are non-discriminative without taking age and background into consideration. It can reveal personalities and attributes that people do not necessarily include in their CVs.
Cognisess' tool is great and accurate for assessing candidates, confirming what the jobs look like, matching profiles, and moving away from industry assumptions.
Cognisess has enabled us to better understand the profile of our senior managers across our business. Using its assessments and people analytics, we've been able to accurately identify the key attributes of high performers and apply the benchmarks to recruit more effectively - saving us time and ensuring best fit candidates across our brands.
As a growing business, we've needed an affordable and data driven tool that can help lighten our HR load and match the right candidates to the right roles. Cognisess' people analytics platform - particularly its machine learning feature - has enabled us to build a robust profile of 'what good looks like'.
Cognisess is reinventing the way businesses make decisions about their most valuable asset: people
At the heart of everything we do is the belief that people have talent and potential. But they often don’t know it or what it is.
Even worse, it is often overlooked or poorly assessed leading to people ending up in the wrong career or job.
Cognisess is democratising human capital – taking the bias out of people processes to make it fairer, more efficient, and more accurate for candidates, employees and employers to make the right choice.
Cognisess Deep Learn™ is the engine and the intelligence behind everything we do. It’s an innovative and dynamic predictive analytics tool, able to learn, absorb and respond to new information in real-time through a process known as machine learning.
Cognisess Deep Learn™ exists to predict future performance, retention and talent development potential, enabling you to make informed, real-time decisions based on the sum of hundreds of millions of data points.
So you’re able to screen quickly, select with precision, and deploy and develop your best people across the entirety of your business.
Since those early days, the company has grown up.
The software is still built in Bath, by a group of talented, passionate people. The office is bigger and we have partners in different parts of the world – helping us work with customers of all different types and sizes.
But we’ve remained true to our purpose and spirit with which we began: be positive, innovative and help democratise human capital.
We have a commitment to give something back to those people who are most disadvantaged in our communities. Cognisess believes that its software and the science behind it can improve the lives of those people who are overlooked or written off.
Cognisess has established a not-for-profit foundation – providing help, support and resources for young people with learning disabilities or who’ve had a tough start in life.
We want to level up and help people achieve all they can in life.
Get in touch with us if you'd like to use the software for free. We work with kids from disadvantaged backgrounds or with learning difficulties.
