What is the science behind the assessment?

dotin’s cognitive models allow for real-time prioritization based on job, team, and skill alignment based on industry-standard ONET features. The algorithm analyzes various personality identifiers, such as word choice and sentence formation in candidate resumes and profiles, to ensure ultimate placement fitment. These models have been tested and validated through rigorous internal experimentation and calibration as well as external business cases. Because the models do not incorporate data that induces subjectivity (gender, race, ethnicity, facial expressions, and contours), they’re able to deliver exceedingly accurate and bias-free outcomes.

How does the Work From Home (WFH) filtering work?

The dotin work from home model predicts an individual’s ability to work in a remote environment without becoming overwhelmed, disengaged, and unproductive i.e. Resiliency. The model identifies which individuals have the potential to be resilient. The values assessed are adaptability/flexibility, cooperation, independence, persistence, self-control, and stress tolerance.
