MindX awarded Innovate UK grant to revolutionise hiring through science, gamification and big data

The Funding is Used to Create an Innovative Digital Solution That Helps Employers and Recruitment Firms to Attract, Identify and Grow the Best Talents

LONDON, February 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MindX is pleased to announce a 225,000 award from Innovate UK, the United Kingdom's innovation agency. The government grant contributes to the development of next generation software tools for candidate screening and assessment as well as employee training. The MindX solution allows employers to realise significant productivity gains and cost savings, for example, by shortening time-to-hire and lowering employee turnover.

MindX's innovative product introduces gamification and big data analytics to psychometric assessments and employee training. On the MINDX Enterprise Portal, employers easily configure customised assessments and training programs that integrate scientific mini games and interactive quizzes. Candidates and employees access this content through the MINDX Mobile App.

Thanks to MindX's scientific, data-driven approach and close cooperation with leading business psychologists, the offered solution contributes to a fair, unbiased screening and selection process, resulting in improved corporate diversity.

Clemens Aichholzer, Founder and CEO of MindX, said: "MindX leverages the latest developments in tech and science to upgrade the recruitment process. Despite the continued rise of HR tech, key areas of hiring related to spotting and growing the best talents remain firmly stuck in the past. This is now changing; companies can't afford ending up on the losing side of an increasingly digital war for talent."

Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, CEO of Hogan Assessments and Scientific Advisor to MindX, said: "Technology has enhanced the status of HR and turned people management into a data-driven game. HR can now empower organisations with robust tech and data to turn the art of people management into a science: an objective, defensible and replicable process with a clear ROI. MindX is driving true innovation in this space with its gamified solutions for talent identification and selection."

Candidates get invited by prospective employers or recruitment firms to complete customised gamified assessments on the MINDX Mobile App. The assessments consist of scientific games and/or psychometric questionnaires. The MINDX App also offers gamified training programs to improve job-relevant skills.
