We all have biases. Some are conscious, and some operate on the unconscious level.
But what happens when our beliefs (even those we are unaware of) interfere in a hiring process?
Bias-free recruitment ensures that all candidates are assessed similarly and based on the same criteria. This practice will consider their qualities, education and skills rather than their appearance or background.

Equalture: a game-based assessment
To ensure a bias-free hiring process, Smelt uses Equalture. Equalture is a game-based assessment, introduced at the beginning of the hiring process to see the true potential of your candidates. Based on science, not bias. Equalture’s games are non-trainable, non-manipulable, free from biases and very enjoyable, which ensures equal treatment of all candidates.
