From experience to selection

  • Recruiting Challenges: candidates complete a soft and hard skills assessment to help HR examine their skills and fit with the position
  • Assessment with Dynamic-adaptive Algorithm: Glickon quizzes use an algorithm that adapts questions to the candidate's level of knowledge
  • Effective Employer Branding: content, events, challenges, and more are brought together in a single smart and engaging storytelling environment
  • Analytics Dashboard: the recruiting team always has all candidate profiles available in one dashboard, where the fit index, a numerical index attributed via AI, makes selection quick and easy. All application data can be downloaded as a report.

Talent Graduate Program

In the course of our collaboration, Acea realized it had to attract STEM candidates to fill certain strategic positions. Acea and Glickon then built a job application experience aimed at young students and recent graduates in these subjects. The Talent Graduate Programme allowed the company to create a skills development experience to engage and place talented young graduates from Economics and STEM disciplines at Acea.

Ease of use for HR, memorable experiences for candidates and employees

We work with HR leaders by offering a simple and powerful tool to build employee and candidate experiences. We collect data on how people work and collaborate in the company, enabling data-driven, accurate, and impactful decisions.
