What is currently the problem in recruitment?
Currently, candidates’ pre-selection is often done on the basis of the CV or LinkedIn profile. Based on declarative statements, this type of document contains information that may be incomplete or difficult to compare; and it provides no insights on soft skills. In addition, selection on a resume sometimes gives rise to unconscious biases related to name, gender, address and even hobbies.
We want to radically transform the current recruitment mode by replacing it with rational processes. Screening must always be based on an objective assessment of the actual skills, knowledge and know-how. This is the mission of Goshaba.
Why cognitive sciences for recruitment?
Goshaba solution is based on cognitive sciences: the contributions of fundamental research in cognitive sciences and neurosciences make our evaluation methods accurate and reliable.
Cognitive science is a discipline that aims to understand and explain human thought’s mechanisms. Measurement tools that stem from cognitive sciences make it possible to assess traits such as attention, memory, or even risk appetite.
Thereby, cognitive science enables to accurately assess soft skills that are essential to suceed in a given position.
What does "soft skills" mean?
Soft skills bring together generic skills related to attitudes, behaviors and personality traits:
- Personal attributes (specific to one individual)
- Interpersonal skills, social and emotional intelligence
- Intellectual abilities.
Unlike technical job skills, these skills are underlying abilities that can be applied in a variety of contexts. These generic skills contribute to a person's effectiveness and success from a professional point of view.
Soft skills are becoming increasingly important. Indeed, beyond diploma and acquired knowledge, organizations are now looking for people who are able to:
- adapt to a constantly changing environment,
- acquire new skills throughout their lives,
- and interact effectively with multiple interlocutors.
What skills can be assessed with Goshaba?
Goshaba solution measures the real skills of candidates, whether they are:
- soft skills (behavioral skills, social intelligence and intellectual abilities)
- hard skills (technical, job or language skills)
- experience (which we measure accurately and in an unbiased way to provide recruiters with factual evidence to compare candidates)
- cultural fit (fit with organization’s culture).
This way, we assess the set of skills relevant to a position, and recruiters have all the elements they need to make their decision in a unique place.
Goshaba enables you to identify the best talents, i.e. those who are most likely to succeed in a position.
How are skills assessed with Goshaba?
Goshaba paths are composed of different types of assessment components.
The main ones are cognitive games, based on both cognitive sciences and video games. We also propose technical tests to evaluate job skills, language tests, and questionnaires (quizzes).
Depending on the key skills sought for a given position, Goshaba will propose you the most appropriate assessment components.
What is the scientific validity of the Goshaba assessments?
Goshaba cognitive games are built according to a rigorous methodology guaranteeing their scientific validity.
To design them, our R&D team relies on fundamental research in cognitive sciences and neurosciences. Our cognitive games are derived from experimental protocols from the scientific literature, which we have adapted to optimize the candidate experience (duration, ux, etc.).
In this process, they are subjected to several tests in order to verify that they remain scientifically valid and reliable. More specifically, a series of descriptive statistical analyses are performed to ensure that our games generate a standard behavior (normal distribution), that they have a satisfactory degree of precision, and that our solution is objective and does not create biases.
What is the difference with existing personality tests on the market?
Traditional psychological tests are based on candidates' declarative responses and are mainly aimed at identifying personality traits. Conversely, Goshaba solution assesses candidates’ skills directly, through cognitive games, simulations and technical tests and allows for a precise and reliable measurement of the soft skills and competencies that are the most decisive for the success in a position.
More and more solutions are showcasing cognitive sciences. Why Goshaba?
The Goshaba solution is based on fundamental research in cognitive sciences.
This reference to science is part of our DNA, because Goshaba’s co-founder and co-director, Camille Morvan, is a world-class specialist in cognitive sciences. After a PhD in neuroscience, Camille continued her research at Harvard, where she also taught cognitive sciences.
Cognitive sciences, on which our R&D team relies, guarantee the reliability of our evaluation methods.
More and more solutions offer video games. Why Goshaba?
Goshaba was co-founded by two video games experts, Djamil Kemal and Minh Phan, who have in their previous experiences created and developed game brands with revenues exceeding $100 million.
Today, Goshaba evaluations are proposed in a gamified format, which allows for better-quality data to be collected, as the candidate gets caught up in the game and does not feel judged.
