Saville Assessment wins 2020 Excellence in Assessment Award
15th October 2020
Saville Assessment were delighted to take the crown for Excellence in Assessment at the Association of Business Psychologists (ABP) Workforce Experience Awards 2020.
The judging panel recognized our work with a leading global insurance company, introducing a new cutting-edge digital assessment process for recruiting sales representatives.
We partnered with the client to create a custom Situational Judgment Test (SJT), assessing how candidates would behave against realistic workplace scenarios. This was implemented alongside the Match 6.5 behavioral screener, powered by Wave®.
Taking just six and a half minutes to complete, the questionnaire measures 36 critical work areas. A ‘Day in the Life’ video completed an engaging experience for candidates, taking under 20 minutes in total to complete.
The client received an overall role-fit score identifying those capable of driving significant sales growth. Individuals who performed better on the blended assessment sold more policies than those who scored lower on the assessment – averaging $248,000 more in sales per year, per person.
The ABP Workforce Experience Awards celebrates excellence in the application of psychology in business and recognizes those demonstrating the commercial and practical value of psychology to organizations.

Gabby Parry, CEO of Saville Assessment
