Description & Features

Our personality assessment is based on six major dimensions of personality i.e. HEXACO model. The factors that make up the HEXACo model: Honest-humility
Emotionality
eXtraversion
Agreeableness
Conscientiousness
Openness to Experience
We provide three different types of reports which can be used by interviewers. Please refer to the reports section for further information. We provide lots of support to help our clients use our tailored assessments, including full debrief sessions before interviews commence to answer any questions arising and to do a deeper dive into the candidates’ personality, ability, and derailment reports.  Note: The SOVA Cognitive ability tests (verbal, numerical, and logical) are timed tests although the time is not present on screen. Therefore, we ask candidates to work as accurately and as quickly as they can – remember, ability tests measure maximum performance.

Measures put in place to remove or reduce biases
All our bespoke and tailored reports are written by highly experienced Practitioners who have a very sound understanding of fairness within an assessment context. Furthermore, we write our bespoke reports based on the SOVA personality questionnaire and as far as we are aware, SOVA are the only test publishers who do not request biographical data. To further this point, SOVA consistently analyse their data for adverse impact for gender and ethnicity across their personality and ability tests. Face validity studies completed by SOVA report that over 90% of candidates (from a sample of 3,231) report finding the assessment engaging and similarly, 90% of those responding believed the assessment presented a positive impression of the organisation they were applying for.
