About us

At Sova we’ve always been pioneers. We knew when we created Sova that our clients wanted a personalised, digitally enabled, simplified assessment journey that is fast and affordable. And so, we’ve drawn on the best of science and the best of technology to offer a seamless digital solution to assessment that is personalised from the very first interaction.

 
 

Sova was founded in 2015 by well-known innovator in the world of psychometric assessment, Dr Alan Bourne. The team is a tight-knit group of organisational psychologists, product developers and technical experts who are passionate about moving traditional assessment forwards into the ultra-modern digital world.

We’re proud to be disruptors in the assessment market. But we’re psychologists as well as technologists and we don’t do anything that we can’t prove works. We're not restricted by legacy models or by frameworks anchored in the past. Instead, we apply our deep understanding of psychology to the future.

Our talent assessments provide a future-focused view of people and potential, for recruitment and development, at every career stage, at every level.
