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.

Hemisphere helps interviewers and managers combat bias. It blends videos of real candidates at interview, animations, and interactive exercises to distil our fifteen years’ experience and knowledge into an hour of learning.

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.

Since its launch in late 2020, Hemisphere has been used by 700 recruiters and managers at top employers including Blackrock.
