Technology is the future and that also applies to recruitment. That’s why we’ve listed ten recruitment technology tools that could be a hit in 2021.
Rotterdam-based CorTexter focuses on inclusivity and diversity with its so-called “SpaceX for recruitment”. Their first product will be online from mid-February and offers a job search tool that supports recruiters in retrieving information and writing and publishing jobs. This software checks for areas of improvement and makes text suggestions.
Neurolytics uses psychophysiological biometrics to help recruiters better pre-select candidates based on soft skills. With their AI solution, they help select candidates that fit a company’s culture. By doing so, they reduce the time and cost in the screening and application process and increase retention rates.

The Amsterdam startup TheRecruitBoosters wants to make recruitment via LinkedIn easier. Through their technology, suitable candidates and clients can be reached quickly (automatically). Since LinkedIn has over seven million users in the Netherlands, this is the best way to find clients and candidates, according to the organization.
Brght.com, which is also based in the Netherlands, focuses on the assessment market and also has a test platform for job seekers: Assess.ly. The assessment platform Brght.com offers a place where applicants can do standardized assessments, from which small(er) organizations should also be able to benefit. Capabilities are measured through the tests on numerical, verbal and abstract levels.
London-based Omnipresent focuses on making international recruitment easier. This organization takes care of the entire process from payroll to compliance and taxes. They do this in more than 150 countries.
Crystal is a tool that creates a personality profile based on a person’s social media channels. After creating an account and installing the plugin, it is possible to receive a description of a person on (among others) LinkedIn. Crystal indicates, for example, how you can best address the person in question and how you should compose your e-mails to this person.
This startup from Athens, called Owiwi, developed an assessment that combines gaming and psychology. In it, the candidate plays different levels, which can be used to reveal his or her character and soft skills. In this interview CEO Ilias Vartholomaios explains how you can easily reduce the risk of a ‘bad hire’ using such a game-based assessment and he offers a glimpse into the (gaming) kitchen!
Vettery uses machine learning and real-time data to match talented job seekers with inspiring companies. Their goal is to enrich and automate the recruitment process, make it more rewarding for everyone and create a happier and more responsible work world.
Syndio is another tool that focuses on equality, namely addressing unjust inequality. The organization has developed software that analyzes salaries, factoring in gender, age and ethnicity differences. It also advises on how to combat these disparities.
It’s very hip to throw ‘The Uber of…’ at something, but we’ll venture out anyway. Madrid-based JobandTalent is a digital staffing platform that has also been called a kind of ‘Uber for jobs’. Some 80,000 freelancers, temporary workers and gig workers are affiliated with it, a number that is still doubling every year.
