When you choose an assessment provider, you want to work in collaboration with them to achieve strategic objectives. You therefore want to be sure about who you are dealing with. Who are the psychometricians? What is the extent of their expertise and standing? What peer-reviewed journals have they been published in? The developers of the Saville Assessment range of tests have international reputations based on decades of published research, development and leadership in the field.
We aim to develop and deliver tests with exceptional validity and make the significance of validity transparent. We employ and train consultants to have deep knowledge about all aspects of the talent cycle and the role tests may or may not play. Saville Assessment Asia Pacific is a trusted advisor to clients about all aspects of assessment. Our reputation has been developed in the Australian, New Zealand and Asia Pacific markets over a period of 30 years.
Our tests are used in 52 countries and are translated into 37 languages. As an Alliance Partner of Willis Towers Watson, Saville Assessment Asia Pacific is backed by an organisation which employs 40,000 people worldwide. Through them, we have unrivalled access to big data and analytical expertise.
Saville Assessment is at the forefront of innovation in assessment. We have lead the way with short combination aptitude tests – the Swift series. These tests are as valid as tests which take candidates three times as long to complete. They have fresh content with interesting and realistic scenarios. Wave® Professional Styles, Focus and Strengths, have brought the assessment of behavioural style, into the 21st century. Our ‘validation-centric’ approach to development has proven a game-changer in the assessment of personality and the legitimate uses to which a self-report questionnaire can be put. Our model of Behaviour, Ability and Global Performance has been developed from empirical evidence, providing interlocking validity between our competency model and the tests which measure it. Our Leadership Impact model is changing the way organisations think about leadership effectiveness.
Our local team are expert in customising reporting solutions for clients to make results highly accessible to users. We have engaging and experiential training courses designed to equip practitioners to confidently implement best practice in their own organisations. And at Saville Assessment there is always a consultant on hand to understand your needs and help you to get the best out of assessments.
As we continuously research and develop in the information age, we are also cautious about new technologies which appear to offer more than they can reasonably claim, or are not taken seriously by candidates. We make no apology for this, as we believe there is too much at stake. We have lead the way with proven assessments which are shorter and more candidate friendly, but without sacrificing relevance and validity, and our clients can be assured that we will continue to do so.
