These profiles are then ranked against a target profile set by HR for the specific job (skills and personality) and organization (values and culture). HR can then focus their efforts on the ones most likely to succeed in the job, communicate fast and effectively with them and deliver the best possible candidate experience. 

Michael Skovsgaard, Founder & CEO states: “We strongly believe that every human with their personality and skills has an individual talent and potential that only truly unfolds within the right organizational framework, values and culture. Whaii Match is one of only a few products in the market taking this approach and addressing it with a modern, automated solution”.
