Breezy HR, the leader in small and midsized business applicant tracking software, announced the release of Incognito Apply, which instantly levels the playing field for applicants without a minute of extra work for hiring teams. Incognito Apply uses an AI engine with machine learning to quickly and easily remove gender, age, and ethnicity from applicant profiles at the first stage of the hiring process. Hiring teams can then evaluate each applicant on job-relevant skills alone to make sure they’re moving the right candidates forward.

“We are all working to create more diverse high-performing teams,” says Barry Williams, Head of Product at Breezy HR. “Our goal with Incognito Apply was to simplify removing bias for any size hiring team, straight-up eliminate unconscious bias during the initial screening and help our customers meet those goals and beat their competition.”

It's not just hiring teams that win with Incognito Apply—candidates get a major boost, too. By enabling Incognito Apply on a job, Breezy automatically hides all of the noisy personal information from candidate profiles, ensuring that the focus is on their all-star skills, qualifications, and experience—not their identity.

Incognito Apply is the latest advanced feature to join Breezy’s march toward the future of hiring, which already includes AI Candidate Match Score, automatic EEOC + OFCCP reporting, Structured Interviews, Scorecards, and more. Now, with Incognito Apply, hiring teams of all sizes and levels of experience can unlock the power, simplicity, and impact of AI-enhanced anonymous hiring.

“Anyone who enables the add-on in Breezy can take advantage of easier, faster, and better diverse hires with Incognito Apply now,” according to Williams. “Just post your job in a single click to dozens of the top job sites, as you normally do in Breezy, and we’ll take care of the rest.”
