Amberjack and Morrisons Win Excellence in Innovation Award

The Association for Business Psychology (ABP) is the only community dedicated to bringing together the latest thinking in business & psychology. Whilst many Awards programmes exist in the field of Human Resources, the ABP Workforce Experience Awards focus directly on demonstrating the commercial and practical value of Business Psychology to organisations. This makes the Awards unique in celebrating excellence and innovation in assessment today.

Morrisons operate in a fast-paced world where consumer needs are constantly evolving against the backdrop of a competitive retail sector. With 12 graduate schemes covering all areas of the business Morrisons recruit over 100 future leaders each year. Through the application of business psychology innovation and best practice our partnership has transformed future leader recruitment. Our bespoke and immersive approach that includes an SJT, video interviews and assessment centres has delivered outstanding results. We’ve created a recruitment process that taps into candidate ‘flow’ for authentic assessment, together with specialist interventions which assess key facets of potential, with a focus on realistic job previews and face validity.

Innovation means unleashing your imagination to challenge the present and shape the future. The Morrisons assessment story is immersive, efficient and highly effective. Candidates love the experience of the recruitment journey because it’s realistic, truthful, engaging and honest. It delivers the talent that Morrisons need to compete and grow by building a legacy of improvement and performance that transcends traditional strategic approaches to recruitment.
