Johnson & Johnson

Improving the efficiency of large-scale recruitment

The Challenge

Johnson & Johnson employ more than 130,000 people worldwide. They needed a way to effectively and efficiently screen the large volume of applications they receive; over 10,000 per year.

The Solution

Graduates & Placement Students

For graduate and placement roles we introduced a dynamic Situational Judgment Test which assessed candidate’s actions scenarios realistic to the role.

Experienced Hire

For more experienced hires we introduced a Role Fit App that creates a smart and simple user experience for selecting role-requirements.

“Our partnership with Saville Assessment has allowed us to deliver a more comprehensive recruitment process and an enhanced hiring manager and candidate experience. In particular, the Role Fit feature of the platform has allowed us to be smarter and more targeted in what we’re assessing at the same time as improving the robustness and consistency of our hiring process.”

“Using the Role Fit app is an interactive way to guide our strategy meetings with hiring managers. It allows us to focus on the competencies that really matter and allows hiring managers to have a say in what we’re assessing. The app feeds into online assessments, interview questions and onboarding conversations which means we’re concentrating on things that are relevant throughout the entire hiring process.”
