MEASURE

Learn how candidates score across 60+ psychometric traits

Sokanu measures people across 60+ dimensions - ranging from traditional personality measures such as introversion and integrity, all the way through to your unique organizational culture. Learn everything about a person, in 15 minutes or less.


MATCH

See how well each candidate fits with one or many roles.

Sokanu has approached prioritizing candidates with one thing in mind - your company’s unique characteristics. We start with defining a role specific to your company - powered by data on 700+ careers on Sokanu. After integrating our system into your ATS or inviting candidates to apply, our system will tell you exactly who to interview and why.

INTERVIEW

Use our detailed scouting reports to have more-focused interviews.

Go into each interview armed with a “scouting report” on exactly what to ask the candidate. Sokanu will identify every red flag and will offer a way to bring them up in interviews. Our goal is to help you be better informed to drive structured interviews with each candidate.

Fun and Valuable for Candidates


Our pre-employment assessment is interactive and fun. Live insights are shared with candidates as they answer questions, and at the end of the assessment, they are presented with a free ($15 value) personality report that outlines their unique traits.

Match



Most personality tests give you one thing - a long, generic report on the candidate. What if you could actually have that report only match to the things you cared about?

Our Science

2x More Effective Than Traditional Recruiting



Predictive Ability of Various Recruitment Methods

Correlation with on-job productivity

Predictive Power


Have a lot of candidates applying for your jobs? Years of research have proven that in many cases, psychometric testing can be a better predictor of on-job performance than traditional recruiting methods alone.

If you're wondering why, there are a couple important reasons. First, things like resumes and references checks can be gamed. Essentially, people will tell you what you want to hear. Second, even with the best intentions, our biases affect our evaluation of candidates. We tend to favour backgrounds that mirror ours because we are in a better position to evaluate them.




Designed for Recruiting



Science built from the ground up


Most psychometric assessments were built decades ago and were intended for generic use. They were not built specifically to measure on-the-job traits. Since that time, scientific advancements have leaped forward, though most tests administered today do not reflect those improvements. "30 years of validity" has become a nice way to say "our science is old". Rather than license off-the-shelf assessments, we created our own, from the ground up, to specifically measure and match people to the needs of organizations.










More than personality


Most assessments measure high-level personality traits like Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism.

  1. We measure these broad traits as well as 16 sub-component traits that make up these broader traits.
  2. We also measure skills, work styles, needs, interests, and organizational values. We measure nearly 200 traits in all.
  3. Our assessment is highly customizable to your needs. Our flexible cloud-based psychometric system and large inventory of items allows you to tailor our assessment and matching algorithm to your needs.






Advanced Faking Measures


Our assessment is bundled with advanced preventative and diagnostic measures of impression management. We take every step to reduce gaming/faking in our assessment, and in cases where such steps are not entirely effective, we help identify the degree of candidate faking through several measures.
