What is Hogan?

Hogan Assessments are personality and behavioral assessment tools that have been used successfully by the business community to predict individual performance for more than 30 years.

  • Used by a wide range of small and large businesses, including 70% of the Fortune 500
  • Scientifically designed and rigorously validated with populations of working adults – Hogan’s validation research has been rated strongest amongst its peer group
  • More than 9 million assessments conducted in more than 50 countries
  • Measures an individual’s Reputation – a more accurate predictor of success than measurement of Identity
  • Research has shown that Big Five personality traits - upon which Hogan HPI is based - are predictive of CEO decision making and operating performance
  • Hogan is the ONLY personality assessment that measures the Dark Side of Personality - the personality you don't see in the interview, the behaviors that can derail both an individual's and an organization's success
  • Decades of extensive Hogan research and meta-analyses have revealed the predictive power of Hogan. Click HERE for Hogan's HPI-HDS ROI Study

Why Hogan?

Make Smarter Hiring Decisions

The total cost of a bad hire increases exponentially the more senior the position and the longer the individual remains with the organization. The time and money investment needed to replace the bad hire only adds to the cost.

Augment Manager Capability

Employee engagement in the U.S. has hovered at or slightly above a dismal 30% for over a decade. Gallup has shown links between employee engagement and vital performance indicators including profitability; managers account for at least 70% of the variance.

Identify and Develop Future Leadership

Succession planning includes identifying individuals with the competencies needed for advancement, developing their strengths and coaching them on their weaknesses.

Hone Leadership Acumen

Research has shown that leadership effectiveness dramatically improves profitability.

Optimize Team Performance

Understanding a team’s strengths, potential derailers, and common values is fundamental to building a highly productive team and cohesive culture.
