Fair, accurate & efficient interviews

We want to help you make better and less biased hiring decisions

Why we exist

Hiring is hard. Companies often struggle to find the right people for the right role and don't always know the best way to build diverse teams.
The whole reason Equitas exists is to bring fairness to hiring so that companies can hire the right people and build diverse teams. Diverse companies deliver so much more in terms of creativity, productivity and financials but they are also 2x as likely to survive in the long run.
We help users capture interview data (audio and text) using dynamic interview frameworks for a structured and consistent approach. We then encourage our users to base their scoring and hiring decisions on the objective evidence they have captured.
We chose interviews as the first part of hiring we wanted to fix as it is where the most bias exists.
