Over the past four years, Saville Consulting has developed revolutionary assessment tools designed to address the 21st century workplace. Concerns over unsupervised internet testing have now been largely overcome by Saville Consulting’s development of their Swift aptitude assessment portfolio. Additionally, the Saville Consulting Wave®, translated into over 20 languages takes one quarter of the time of the OPQ® with superior validity and is rapidly becoming the definitive personality assessment tool worldwide. The Saville Consulting Wave® has demonstrated outstanding ability to predict performance at work and groundbreaking research by Professor Peter Saville and his team has shown that the tool outperforms the OPQ32, NEO, 16PF, MBTI, Disc and HPI in predicting job performance.
At this PsyAsia seminar in Hong Kong, Scott Rufus will present some of these findings and introduce the Wave tool along with its practical applications.
