How It Works

The Censia Talent Intelligence Platform(™) leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to aggregate and contextualize billions of data points to enable a data-driven approach to people decisions, powering the future of human resources. Censia works with trusted data source partners to collect a vast amount of public data on people, companies, and industries from more than 2,000 data sources – professional networks, resume database, alumni associations, firmographic databases and more. Censia employs machine learning and system intelligence to analyze and understand these richly-detailed professional profiles, contextualizing the talent landscape and enabling more effective sourcing and engagement.

Once collected, Censia organizes, normalizes, deduplicates and maps thousands of factors to create what it calls the Censia Golden Record. This Golden Record provides a 360-degree talent view of an individual. These insights and intelligence can be accessed through Censia’s robust, highly secure API or SaaS applications, or integrated with leading ATS solutions. Censia aggregates a wide array of public and private information sources, organizing and then anonymizing the information into a secure, proprietary database. Censia is committed to data privacy and security and is GDPR compliant, CCPA compliant, enhances OFCCP and EEO compliance, and is ISO 27001 certified.

Powered by one of the largest professional data platforms globally, Censia Executive Intelligence is where search and science meet.

Censia’s Executive Intelligence team can support clients as they access its solutions directly, or the technology can easily be deployed in house for use by internal talent teams and leading executive search firms.‚Äč The result is the same, every time: the best candidate shortlist, without demographic, sector or geographic bias. And because Censia’s technology delivers a more comprehensive fit profile, search personnel can more easily convey to a candidate why they are a perfect fit for a given role. Welcome to the modern era of AI-driven executive search.

Talent Acquisition

Organizations need great people. Great people expect great opportunity, culture and support. And great people may not necessarily be who or where you think they ought to be. The war for talent has never been more challenging to understand and manage effectively. To compete, organizations need a far more sophisticated and capable talent intelligence capability.
