Applied is the essential platform for de-biased hiring. By anonymising applications, leveraging a skills-based methodology, and building transparency and analytics into every step of the process, our platform identifies vital talent that would have otherwise been missed.

When organisations alter the way they hire, they not only discover the very best candidates, they help usher in a world where everyone feels a sense of inclusion, equity, and belonging.

Despite our best intentions, humans are less-than-perfect at making decisions. Studies show that the tools we have traditionally used to aid our decision-making — like resumes, unstructured interviews, and network connections — exacerbate unconscious biases.

Our platform removes these flawed signifiers and focuses on a data-driven approach. The all-in-one system allows you to manage and compare candidates, send interview invites, build questions through an efficient guided process, run the interview and score them as well as make the hire without ever leaving the app.

Teams using Applied have seen:

  • Up to 4x attraction and selection of ethnically diverse candidates
  • Up to 3x reduction in number of interviews
  • 96% retention rate after one year
  • 9/10 average candidate experience rating
  • 66% reduction in time spent hiring

Some of the UK’s most progressive employers in the non-profit sector use Applied. Our clients range from some of the nation’s largest charities like Comic Relief, Wellcome Trust, and Ambition Institute, to small to medium-sized charities like Working Families, LandAid, and London Sport.
