The power of potential

Potential-based hiring is a new hiring approach where you look at a candidate’s capabilities and soft skills (to perform in a specific role), moving beyond the outdated reliance on past experience and socio-economic advantage.

By measuring and hiring for potential, you can finally build your teams with the right mix of personality, qualities and intelligence to thrive in their roles.

Whether it's the skills crisis holding back your organisation, or you have an ambition to drive diversity and social mobility in your company - hiring for potential is your answer.

Only UNA lets you dig deeper into every candidate’s personality and intelligence, all in one place. Take your candidate selection to the next level and enjoy the benefits.

What our clients say:

Arcadis logo
"The quality of the candidates is impeccable, while the behaviour-based assessment is also assisting us in terms of ethnic minority and gender diversity. I think the beauty of the assessment is that no-one is excluded.”
Leyton-1
“Scrapping the CV and adopting Arctic Shores’ assessments has revolutionised the way that we hire. The talent team, managers and senior stakeholders have all seen the impact on the business as a whole. The teams are now much more diverse, with real diversity of thought, background and experience, as well as ethnicity, social mobility and gender. It's been transformative.”
AXA-Logo

Phenomenal! Whatever expectations we had when we started this journey, I genuinely don’t think we could’ve imagined how successful it would be.

Hires made through Arctic Shores were 18% more likely to stay beyond a year. This reduction in turnover saved AXA £2.5m in costs over the 12-month period.”

UNA's behaviour-based assessment

Eleven tasks, based on extensive neuroscientific research, capture micro-shifts in responses to elicit your candidate's true personality and cognitive capabilities.

Unlike other psychometric assessments, UNA reveals potential and qualities which might otherwise go unnoticed or be unknown even to the candidate.

 

Harnessing science

Over time, our unique group of cognitive neuroscientists, data scientists, psychometricians and business psychologists have built, and constantly enhances, a truly ground-breaking and innovative approach to understanding personality and workplace intelligence.
