Apollo VCT portfolio company story: Sova
Helps companies improve transparency and diversity in their hiring processes.
What Sova does
Sova is a human resources technology (HRTech) company designed to manage the assessment of candidates for large organisations, helping them improve transparency and diversity. By combining psychometric science and a compelling digital experience, Sova helps companies more accurately identify top talent and create personalised candidate experiences. This enables organisations to increase the efficiency of the entire hiring journey.
Why we like it
We think it’s a really exciting time to be investing in this space. The traditional methods for recruitment have fundamentally changed in recent years and have been accelerated by the ongoing pandemic. Hiring and onboarding are now regularly conducted remotely and companies are beginning to consider alternative ways of assessing their candidates beyond the traditional interview. In addition, HRTech solutions like Sova are becoming increasingly important in helping companies improve the way they go about diversity, inclusion and wellbeing, an area that is of particular importance to Octopus.
