About Us

Our mission is to help companies make better people choices, and people better career choices.

Founded in April 2014 by Robert Newry and Safe Hammad, Arctic Shores was established to bring greater objectivity and fairness to the recruitment and career development process.

Taking an unconventional assessment approach by combining neuroscience, AI and game technology, we knew we had our work cut out for us, but we were (and continue to be) driven by the aim to make a step-change in the way companies make people choices and people career choices.

Our true success lies in knowing that we have increased diversity, reduced bias and given useful feedback to hundreds of thousands of candidates throughout multiple organisations across the globe.
