2010 - 2014
The early days of Tazio
Founded in 2010 by our CEO Tom Stroud, Tazio started life as one of the first automated video interviewing tools. Tom believed that video interviews offered candidates a far better way to demonstrate their suitability and potential to employers than the traditional CV.
Despite being widely accepted as a great idea, take up in the early years was slow. However, over time an increasing number of forward-thinking employers started to recognise the benefits. Slowly but surely, we gained new customers and started to grow.
By 2014, Tom had realised that video interviewing was just one small piece of the talent assessment puzzle.
2014 – 2019
Growing and expanding
Over the next five years, we continued to innovate and extend the Tazio platform to include an ever-increasing collection of question types, advanced features and improvements. By 2019, we had created the leading talent assessment, management and development platform.
With a growing list of global enterprise customers and strong partnerships with the leading RPOs, we continued to grow. Driven by our commitment to helping employers better identify the potential in their candidates and employees, we launched the prototype of our pioneering new assessment/development centre tool.
First adopted by the NHS, car manufacturer SEAT and the government agency Homes England, it proved a huge success.
2020 – Present
The boom of remote hiring
2020 rolled around, and, well, we all know what came with it. As a massive surge in remote working came into play, so did remote hiring. And our virtual assessment and development centres moved to the front and centre of our offering.
With remote working and hiring now an ongoing priority and preference for many employees, virtual assessment centres are here to stay. But the data-driven decisions don’t end there. In 2022, we are rolling out improved talent insights and 360-degree feedback tools to help even more employers manage their talent and develop the potential in their workforce.
