Interview With Professor Peter Saville of SHL, Saville Assessment, and 10x Psychology

I was thrilled to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Professor Peter Saville of SHL, Saville Assessment, and 10x Psychology so we could discuss his life and many business successes.

You can enjoy this interview in video and audio formats.

Peter Saville is arguably the best known, most successful, and highly acclaimed Psychologist within the Business Psychology Profession.

“As a skilled psychometrician and visionary leader, Peter Saville has made a significant impact on professional psychology in the UK and beyond. The widespread use of his tests by major companies and public bodies is testament to his remarkable ideas.”

The British Psychological Society

With a usage of some 50 million of his measures of ability, personality, motivation and talent annually, Peter has been described as “One of the most influential Psychologists of our time”.

Peter founded SHL in 1977 where he developed the Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) and the first commercial Big 5 Personality measure.

Peter floated SHL on the main London stock exchange in 1997 for £240 million.

In 1999 Peter was cited as the only Occupational Psychologist in the list of Britain’s Top Ten Psychologists.

In 2001 Peter’s portrait hung in the National Portrait Gallery, London, after being presented with the British Psychology Society Centenary Award for Distinguished Contributions to Professional Psychology.

Peter went on to found Saville Consulting (now Saville Assessment), where he developed the Saville Wave questionnaire. The company was acquired by Willis Towers Watson in 2015 for £43 million.

Already a Fellow, in 2012 Peter received the highest BPS award, Honorary Fellowship, in recognition of his work in “Flying the flag for Britain for objective assessment” and “Creating the global gold standard for psychometric tests”.

In 2014, Peter was awarded Academic Fellowship of the CIPD, their highest honour.

Peter has written over 200 publications and spoken in over 60 countries worldwide.

Peter was Professor of Psychology at Queen’s University, Belfast and is currently Professor of Leadership Studies at Kingston University, London.

His memoirs ‘Testing Times: Psychologist at Work’ will be published in 2020.
