We’re changing the arc of history

Over the last three years, we’ve dedicated ourselves to the cause of advancing diversity and inclusion – not just in Australia, but throughout the world. It began with our never-before-seen Ai Smart Interviewer, which disrupts bias and gives every single candidate a memorable interview process. Now, it continues, powered by our suite of innovations, which include real-time diversity analytics, Fairness Score benchmarking, and much more.

Come along on this journey with us. Think as big as we do.

You’ll reap the massive rewards that true diversity will bring to your business.

“Sapia has redefined what a fair recruitment process can be.”

We’ve all been talking about diversity for some time, but many companies are still not equipped to bring about real change – and this is primarily because we fail to acknowledge our human biases. Sapia’s Smart Chat Interviewer has redefined what a fair recruitment process can be. It is blind, it is efficient, and it is backed by valid, peer-reviewed science.”

Woolworths and Sapia

Solving for diversity and efficiency at massive scale

Woolworths Group is Australia’s largest private employer – and a valued partner of Sapia for more than two years. Using our technology, Woolworths is able to hire without bias across its entire Group. Not only that, our tech has enabled Woolworths to cut its time to hire by 10 days, and get offers to candidates in as little as 24 hours.

It’s for these reasons – and many others – that W23, Woolworths’ investment arm, is supporting us on the next leg of our expansion journey.

“Sapia has totally reshaped our hiring process.”

“Woolworths Group is always recruiting and we see tens of thousands of applications processed annually in our supermarket business. This new technology positively impacts bias during the recruitment process. Not only does it provide a flexible platform for our recruitment teams, we’re really pleased with the experience our applicants have in the process ultimately delivering the hiring and equality outcomes we strive for across the Group.”

Managing Director

“We’re making equity in the workplace a reality.”

“Our customers are seeing extraordinary results –  and seeing them fast. We give them data and insights that let them track fairness and bias in their decisions across the employment journey. I’m excited to have such two big names investing in our technology – it’s an incredible validation for my team who has been committed to our mission from the get go and we can’t wait to open our technology to new markets.”
