Our ethics go far beyond GDPR compliance

Our values directly translate into how we deal with candidates.

  • Voluntariness

    Participants are informed that using Retorio is absolutely voluntary and that there are other alternative application options (e.g. uploading a cover letter) and that there is no risk of disadvantages in the event of non-participation. The voluntariness of the participation is also guaranteed by the fact that the participant can stop and delete the recording at any time or delete the completed recording at any time (as long as it has not yet been sent to the company).

  • Fairness

    Retorio was designed to support organizations to drive sustainable behavior change, at scale. With AI-powered training simulations, every employee has a personal AI coach on demand to support their development.

  • Anonymity

    Retorio anonymizes and encodes all user data in advance to guarantee that an identification of your applicants and employees is not possible.

  • Support

    Retorio was designed to support recruiters with recommendations. Automated individual decisions about whether or not an application should be considered are not possible. For example, Retorio allows recruiters to sort applications according to various criteria (similar to the sort function in existing application tracking systems), but the human still has the authority to make decisions.

  • Flexibility

    We want to be adaptable to and respectful of candidates' time schedule and resources. Participants using Retorio can easily access and upload videos from their mobile device independent of time and location. Furthermore, time consuming preparation of motivational letter and CV are omitted from the process.

  • Transparency

    Retorio believes in providing feedback and making hiring decisions transparent. The scientific foundation of Retorio's software stands as warrantor for the ultimate goal of sustained candidate and employer satisfaction enabled by optimal objective fit.

  • Continuous improvement

    We are committed to continuous improvement rather than unattained perfection. Retorio works relentlessly on mending bugs, collecting data and increasing accuracy.
