“Having the wrong people in your business, even consultants, can be expensive for the company. Consequently, I view wise investments in technical solutions to evaluate competence, regardless of whether it is about matching or testing tools, as a crucial aid,” says Sarah Willis Carlsson, senior advisor at the Connected Car and User Experience (CCUX) at CEVT, an innovation centre for the Geely Group in Gothenburg.

Technical development means that companies are demanding ever quicker access to the right competence in order to be able to develop at the pace required to maintain their competitiveness.
Sarah Willis Carlsson highlights the change in view of recruitment that started around ten years ago, a time when specialists were much more limited in their relevant areas of expertise, but where they are now expected to be much more agile in their roles.
Ework has been working on developing a digital tool for measuring, among other things, social skills since 2016. The aim is to become even better at identifying the right candidate for the assignment by marrying competence with assignments in an independent, transparent and non-discriminatory manner, which includes using decoded CVs and mathematical algorithms.
