About us

Get to know us a little better…

Our experience led us to offer an enhanced solution that considers human skills.

We aim to improve organizations and the lives of employees worldwide by providing tools that help ensure that you hire people that match both the job (with their skills and personality) and your organization (in terms of values and culture).

We believe that focusing on improving this match will make your employees more happy, engaged and productive. As a result, the foundation of your company will grow stronger and more resilient for the changes in the future.

Putting human qualities and skills at the center when matching candidates and companies is simply good business.

We do this by using sophisticated technology but with a tailored human touch for each organization.

That’s Whaii.

Whaii is founded on the basis of our own experiences and challenges when hiring the right people to our teams.

Our past experiences as hiring managers with both full-time employees and freelancers we found that screening candidates for interviewing and eventually hire often was based on hard factors (skills, education etc.).

However, it was often soft factors, such as personality, personal values and cultural preferences that caused people to either leave by their own initiative, being let go by the company, or simply resulted in low performance, low engagement and low satisfaction for both parties.

We strongly believe we can do better in matching people and companies. To the benefit of both candidates and companies. We can do that by focusing on personality, values and cultural preferences.

That is how Whaii was founded. Using sophisticated technology with a human touch to hire better! 

Leveraging personality, values and culture to improve lives and organizations

We aim to improve organizations and the lives of employees worldwide by providing tools that help ensure that you hire people that match both the job (with their skills and personality) and your organization (in terms of values and culture).

We believe that focusing on improving this match will make your employees more happy, engaged and productive. As a result the foundation of your company will grow stronger and make sure that it will be better suited to face the changes and challenges faced in the future.

 

And deliver better results because of it. Happy employees and thriving businesses are not opposites – but rather each others companions.

Putting human qualities and attributes at the center when matching candidates and companies are simply good business.

We do this by using sophisticated technology but with a human touch. 

That’s Whaii.

“Tangata whaii te ora”

Among the Maori population in New Zealand this means “a person moving towards well-being”. This matches our mission very well. We want to make sure every person hired into a job will actually thrive in that role. Not only because he or she has the right skills, but also because their personality, values and culture match that of the job and organization.

We believe this is the key to making people more happy, engaged and productive.
