Join the leading employers hiring for potential with Arctic Shores.


Start hiring efficiently.

Are you struggling with excessive agency costs and a high cost of hire? Are your hiring managers complaining of poor quality candidates?

If so, the answer lies in shifting away from hiring based on experience to hiring for potential. Instead of just focusing on technical skills, your high performers are also likely to be the ones with the most relevant soft skills and aptitude (which we like to call 'human skills' and 'workplace intelligence'). Get this right and your hiring results will change for the better, while also saving time and costs.

We know that you want to get the balance right between quality, cost and time to hire. Hiring for potential is proven to increase long-term role satisfaction, lower your costs and reduce staff turnover - helping you to take control while building the workforce of tomorrow.

Here are some of the ways our solution is changing the hiring process.

axa case study stats

When we first partnered with AXA, they had three main problems: High employee turnover, a lack of data to make informed decisions, and inconsistency in volume hiring. After just 12 months our “phenomenal” results delivered over and above AXA’s expectations.

Transform the way you hire in three simple steps.


1. Define candidate potential

You’ll pick your success criteria for the role, which can be a mix of human skills and workplace intelligence. You can use our role templates, or set up your own.

2. Measure what matters

As there are no questions in the Arctic Shores assessment, and it’s just the candidates' true behavioural responses, you’ll be able to measure your candidates without bias, while also seeing the potential they hold.

3. Screen and interview without bias

Once the Arctic Shores assessment has been completed, we’ll provide you with an overview of the candidate’s human skills and qualities. These potential-based insights will be provided in a tailored interview guide, specific to the success criteria of the role to help you through the interview process.

Our behaviour-based assessment.

There are 10 tasks in our behaviour-based assessment. Each one is just a few minutes long, ensuring that the candidate has an enjoyable and engaging experience. During the tasks, we’ll pick up on every little response and action - capturing over 10,000 data points.

Unlike traditional psychometric assessments, ours is based on neuroscience, using tasks to uncover a candidate's potential, which often reveals qualities and human skills they were not aware they possessed.


Harnessing science

Over time, our team of cognitive neuroscientists, data scientists, psychometricians and business psychologists have built, and constantly enhance our truly innovative approach to understanding personality and workplace intelligence.
