About us

Lykos was established in 2019 in Dubai by a team of seasoned professionals who were obsessed with speed and accuracy. They had personally grappled with the complex talent acquisition challenges inherent in running award-winning multi-million dollar businesses. These businesses faced unique combinations of challenges such as enhancing the candidate experience, ensuring customer service excellence, managing high employee turnover, and effectively strategizing talent management to build a sustainable competitive advantage.

Driven by their firsthand experiences and recognizing the potential of data science in transforming the talent acquisition landscape, our founders partnered with Ivy League researchers in psychology, data science, and Al. Together, they developed a cutting-edge talent management solution designed to simplify hiring, streamline onboarding, and ultimately empower organizations to build high-performing teams using advanced predictive modeling and analytics.

Lykos tackles pressing industry pain points such as skills shortages, diverse workforce needs, and rapidly evolving market demands, ensuring that organizations can quickly adapt to change and maintain a robust talent pipeline. By focusing on improving the overall candidate experience and providing actionable insights into talent management strategies. Lykos helps organizations attract, retain, and develop top-tier talent, fostering a culture of continuous growth and innovation.
