background element


  • Pera accumulated answers from more than millions of candidates and over hundred of thousands of different competency and value descriptions and performance labels. We enriched the data with actual performance reviews and ratings received from managers and team leaders to learn what goods look like.

  • Language is a fingerprint of who we are, how we behave in certain situations and our personality. Language holds a lot of indicators about ourselves and we connect the indicators with competencies

  • We predict a fit to cultural values and/or job specific competencies. 

  • We are ISO 27001 certified and GDPR compliant (referer to GT&C and Privacy statement on the website)

Calculations and algorithms

  • Our algorithms don't process any indicators towards a persons gender. We have done many researches and proofed that we don't discriminate towards gender. We don't see difference in language use between gender.
  • Yes and no. We don't see any significant difference in the language between a top tier university grad or a low tier university. Though the used normgroup is the most important influencer. When using a normgroup only existing of PhD students there will be a difference in outcome with a fresh grad student.

  • We have a plagiarism check and when someone is copy/pasting answers (using the same answers) the entry is flagged and not processed. The person will receive a notify an outcome can not be produced. 

  • Yes they can but it is not advisable. We look at sentence structure, semantical and lexical indicators of natural language use. It will affect the outcome in a negative way more than in a positive way.
