Talytica is a SaaS-based company focused on personal talent analytics to make hiring fair, simple and effective. Talytica combines best-practices in psychological assessments with advances in data analytics and machine learning to predict the performance and tenure of each new job applicant before you hire.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Talytica allows your organization to automate assessments, reference checks, and phone interviews, as well as leverage applicant machine learning scoring models to determine if candidates are a pass, consider, or fast-track (must be configured in Talytica and requires several hundred historical candidate records in Greenhouse Recruiting).

Enable the Talytica integration

In order to enable the integration, your organization will need to contact Talytica to request your API key. Once you have received your API key, fill out the form at www.greenhouse.io/asksupport or click here to open a ticket.

Note: Don't send the API key in this initial email. Greenhouse Technical Support will respond with a SendSafely link for you to securely share your API key.

Once Greenhouse Technical Support receives your API key via SendSafely, we'll email you to confirm that your API key has been set up in your account and that your integration is enabled.

Note: To verify your identity, Greenhouse Technical Support might request you provide a support verification code before adding the API key to your organization's account.

Use the Talytica integration

There are two main approaches your team can take:

  1. Simplify a complex hiring process by replacing several existing stages with Talytica's All-in-One Multi-Test.
  2. Add more disciplined automation to stage with Talytica's modular tests. These modular tests allow you to work with other testing providers for some stages if you prefer.

Example one: Simple Approach

This general multi-test includes the following assessments:

  • Personality Assessments
  • Ideal Organizational Type
  • Strong Career Interests
  • Automated Phone Interviews
  • Automated Reference Checks

Example two: Modular Approach

Below is an example of setting up several Talytica stages to advance the candidate through using a modular approach. This is part of the power of Talytica as these stages are close to fully automated.

You can add the following stages under the Talytica stage:

  • Talytica Custom Pass or Interview Pre-Screen
    • This is a Custom model built from your historical data within Greenhouse Recruiting. You will have to contact Talytica to add it. It requires at least 100 people having been advanced to ‘interview’ and at least 200 total applicants. If you have these, Talytica can build a model that will give the probability that a candidate will be advanced to the interview stage.
  • Talytica Culture Fit & Personality Assessments
    • These are tests for Culture Fit, Organizational Preference, Strong Career
      • Interests and Personality (Cognitive is also available). These help predict culture fit, turnover and performance - and can be customized for customers with more than 100 candidates per position.
  • Talytica Automated Phone Interviews
    • This gives you the ability to use pre-recorded phone interview questions and listen to the candidates responses prior to talking to them. Emotional qualities of the voice characteristics are also ‘auto-scored.’ This gives you the ability to make much more rapid, more informed decisions on who to advance.
  • Talytica Automated Reference Checks
    • Rapid, accurate, completely automated reference checks that save time and allow you to move reference checking to various stages.
  • Talytica All-In-One Multi-Assessment
    • This includes b) through d) above and all stages are sent to the Candidate as one, integrated 10-20 minute assessment.
  • Custom Tests
    • Talytica has full customization as well as Cognitive Tests and the ability to add machine learning based predictions to nearly anything Talytica has. Contact Talytica to learn more.

Add the Talytica assessment stage

Once the Greenhouse Recruiting / Talytica integration is enabled for your organization, you'll be able to add the Talytica assessment as an Interview stage.

To do this for an existing job, navigate to a job (Jobs > Job Name) and click Job Setup.

Click Interview Plan and then click Add a Stage.

Select the Talytica stage.

When finished, click Add.

Configure the assessment stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit beside it.

On the Edit Interview Kit page, you will see a dropdown that reflects all the assessments you have set up previously in Talytica.

Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse Recruiting user to grade / review the submitted assessment, and then click Save.

Note: All configurations of the assessments themselves, as well as the email template, will need to be completed in Talytica.

Send the Talytica assessment

When a candidate is moved into the Talytica interview stage, Greenhouse Recruiting will display a Send Test link on the candidate's profile. Click the Send Test link.

Note: When you send an assessment from Greenhouse Recruiting, the interview instructions actually are sent to the candidate by Talytica.

Use the subsequent box to:

  • Confirm the email address of the candidate
  • Select which assessment the candidate will take
  • Assign a grader

Click Send Test when finished.

The candidate will receive an email invite to take the assessment.

Review the assessment results

After completing the assessment, it will be scored automatically by the Talytica system, with the option for you to listen to recorded responses and add manual scores to the audio assessments in the Talytica portal.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse Recruiting. The following statuses are available:

  • Take Home Test to be sent
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from [designated grader]

Once the Talytica assessment is completed and the grader has submitted a scorecard, the Interview Kit will contain a link to the candidate's results in Talytica.
