2022 Top HR Product Paradox: Animated Assessments

iPhone 12 Pro Mockup by Anthony Boyd Graphics

What it is: Paradox has built the fastest, mobile-first assessment on the market, requiring just 90 seconds to complete and boasting a 95% completion rate. By using animated images rather than words, candidates provide accurate information in a fraction of the time, reducing candidate drop-off and increasing satisfaction. The animated character, Ash, is gender- and race-neutral, creating a more inclusive experience for candidates that drives more accurate results. Relying upon the widely respected Big Five model of personality, the Animated Assessment drives quality of hire for clients and greater satisfaction for candidates by fusing design with science to create magical outcomes.

Why we like it: Candidate and employee assessments don’t have to be a burden. Paradox has done the nearly impossible by creating an innovative assessment program that is more engaging, perceptive and frankly looks like a dating app. The software provides reports to both hiring managers and candidates based on research culled from more than 5,000 study participants, including a match score for each candidate using Paradox’s underlying Ideal Candidate Profile.
