Executive Assessment

Effective and engaging executive assessment solutions leave candidates with a positive impression of your organisation whatever the outcome. Sova’s executive assessment service supports the transition of successful applicants into their role as well as highlighting strengths and areas of exposure. An assessment process which is designed around your organisational context means results can easily be fed through into onboarding, development planning and objective setting.

Objective and fair executive assessment

Sova’s executive assessment solutions are designed for senior candidates who have been shortlisted for a role. The assessment process is designed around your strategy, challenges and role requirements for the role now and in the future. Recognising the complexity of the working environment, our assessments have a focus on transformation and change and candidates are analysed from a range of perspectives including leadership agility, derailment risks and personality preferences.

Our approach

Work with Sova’s expert occupational psychologists to design a customised executive assessment solution. Then tap into Sova’s fully configurable online assessment platform to deliver your programme. Online assessment is complemented by in-depth psychological interviews with our occupational psychologists. At the end of the programme we provide detailed reports that can feed into ongoing development and objective setting, placing focus on development areas that are most relevant for your executive hires.
