The Science Behind Yobs
We are a team of HR practitioners, data scientists and organizational psychologists working with researchers at the industry-leading “Happiness Measurement Lab” of Purdue University to focus on validity and mitigating adverse impact from biases.
How it works
Speech and Verbal Skills
The speaker's naturally spoken answers are transcribed into text automatically in 60+ languages. The speech's content is then analyzed linguistically for word choice, sentence construction preferences and more using natural language processing.
Also called prosody— is the process of analyzing not just what is said but how it is said. Elements like tone, pitch, emotions and other non-verbal elements of communication that help provide a full picture of a person's communication style.
Vetted for Subconscious Bias
Our pre-processing algorithms and datasets and constantly vetted for adverse impact that can arise from demographic, physical, linguistic and cognitive differences between individuals.
99.9% quality with review system
Our API generates a confidence score for every report to help ensure the highest quality. Our team of trained reviewers, assisted by quality assurance tools, ensure that every report sent back to you is accurate.
The Yobs Talent Assessment service provides an application programming interface (API) for measuring behavioral insights from voice, video and text communication. Our scientifically validated assessment service uses trained professionals and natural language processing to assess an individual's communication style, work style, soft skills and the Big 5 personality traits from a validated video assessment.
The Science of Personality
Our API evaluates the "Big 5", the five most important dimensions of personality and soft skills, in accordance with the Five Factor Model (FFM)—a model that’s used by 85% of the Fortune 500 in hiring and training assessments and is the most accepted by the industry and scientific community. It is also largely proven to be correlated with job success in many different occupations in consensus literature.
In a validation study conducted by researchers in I/O Psychology, Yobs' Big 5 assessment of 500+ individuals was strongly, positively correlated with the experts' assessment of these individuals. Other technologies benchmarked, such as IBM Watson, significantly underperformed the Yobs API.
