Contextual Recruitment System (CRS)

Identify the resilient outperformers who will make your business better.

Research shows high achieving people from disadvantaged backgrounds outperform their peers in elite jobs. Rare’s pioneering CRS provides real time contextual information allowing you to identify exceptional candidates you might otherwise miss. We measure each candidate’s achievements against the uniquely comprehensive datasets and classification systems we’ve developed over more than a decade.

Firms adopting our CRS hire 61% more people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Hemisphere

Combat bias. Reprogramme your brain. Make better decisions.

We have spent five years investigating the role of the unconscious in professional environments, working with experts in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and sociology.

The result is Hemisphere, a unique training solution that helps interviewers and managers combat unconscious bias. Hemisphere blends videos of real candidates at interview, animations, and interactive exercises to create a unique immersive training experience.

During testing with professionals in law firms and financial institutions, more than 80% of participants found the training useful, and 80% had their biases identified and disrupted.

Retain

Attrition rates amongst newly qualified BAME lawyers are disproportionately high. Rare’s upcoming research report draws on big datasets from our operations and in-depth qualitative insights from our alumni to reveal the reasons why. It has led directly to the development of new Performance and Inclusion sessions for BAME lawyers, and Consultancy and Training sessions for legal clients.
