About Revelian

The People Analytics Company

Our Vision: Empowering effective people decisions at work

Our Mission: To provide innovative, cloud-based HR tools to inform effective people decisions.

Revelian is the people analytics company.  The ‘people’ are employees, jobseekers, leaders, teams and peers who are in work or are seeking to be.  The ‘analytics’ is the output of each assessment we administer and interpret – aptitude, culture fit, personality, emotional intelligence, skills, resilience, role fit, engagement, behaviour and propensity for risk.


When combined, people + analytics means that Revelian has unique, data-driven insight into human behaviour at work.  And when we share this insight with our clients, we give them powerful understanding to make effective people decisions.

Why Revelian?

Organisations and government departments across Australia and internationally, trust Revelian to enable them to make more effective people decisions, such as:


  • Who to hire
  • Who to promote
  • How to identify the skills and talent currently existing in their business
  • How to manage their existing employees
  • How to work together as a stronger team
  • Who their future leaders are


This results in:


  • Better productivity
  • Enhanced innovation
  • Improved engagement
  • Stronger teams
  • Reduced time to hire
  • Improved retention
  • Risk mitigation
  • Happier employees
  • Inspiring leaders
  • More courageous thinking
  • Alignment with values
  • Great culture
  • Stronger purpose
  • Strategic alignment
  • Enhanced employer brand

So, what’s so special about us?

We provide human insight and guidance to some of Australia’s most well-regarded employers


We’ve assessed more than 200,000 people around the world in the last 12 months

Our assessments are developed, reviewed and interpreted by experienced registered psychologists
But our reports are straightforward and easy for any people manager to understand.

We’ve been around for more than 15 years
In fact, you may be familiar with our previous name, Onetest.

We’re constantly innovating
We were the first to market in Australia with un-proctored online testing, and the first to market with games-based cognitive assessment.

We’re quality assured and have a strong data security focus

We’re the only provider with a 12 month testing policy
This means people cannot sit the same assessment more than once in 12 months – so they can’t ‘practice’.  This produces more robust results.


We provide 7-day support to customers and test-takers alike – from Australia


We provide measurable, useful insights… not just theory
