Novel is about helping you hire the right candidates for your organization.
The traditional candidate selection process relies almost entirely on volunteered information. Demonstrated behaviors are proven to be more effective indicators of future performance, but the process of generating them has historically been expensive and doesn’t scale.
Novel’s realistic job previews generate demonstrated behavior in an accessible, engaging web-based experience for your job seeking candidates. Your organization will see an increased number of compatible candidates and reduced turn-over.
Game-play technology helps raise engagement and productivity, making ‘gamification’ a popular new tool across many sectors.
Ramona Bruland interviews Novel’s CEO, Brayden Olson, about his plans to bring the business industry into the gaming world.
”…Novel Inc., (is) a two-year-old firm that aims to upend the way prospective employees and employers find each other. Novel wants to turn the pre-job application and screening process into a video game, in which candidates go through a series of simulated workplace scenarios to determine if a job is a good fit for their personalities and skills.”
Novel competes with top entrepreneurs, innovators, and influencers at the 2011 Fortune Brainstorm: TECH; Startup Idol. Check out Brayden’s presentation at 15:45

By starting with a game first and then building into the business simulation world we can carry the fun of gaming over into the business side.
