About Hogan assessment tools

Hogan has over 25 years of experience providing assessment solutions for employee selection and development. Hundreds of validation studies demonstrate the extent to which the assessments predict performance. Organisations using Hogan rely on the tools to improve quality of hire, facilitate individual development, and enhance team effectiveness.

For example, after the events of 9/11, the United States decided to employ armed guards on American flights. They used the Hogan assessment tools as a key tool in their guard selection process. They needed to be able to accurately predict how applicants would perform under pressure.

Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)

The HPI is a measure of normal personality. It provides information regarding the "bright side" of personality characteristics that appear in social interaction and that facilitate or inhibit a person's ability to get along with others and achieve his or her goals.

The HPI is based on the Five-Factor Model (FFM) of personality, assesses normal personality and interpersonal characteristics, and predicts occupational success.

The five factors in the FFM are openness to experience, emotional stability, dependability, agreeableness and urgency. 

The Hogan assessment suite is widely used for leadership development from middle management to the executive level. 

Hogan Development survey (HDS)

The HDS assesses 11 common dysfunctional dispositions that interfere with a person's ability to build relationships with others and create cohesive, goal orientated teams.

While the traits of the HPI can easily be seen in a person's day to day behaviours, the dysfunctional dispositions of the HDS will only be seen in situations where the person is not actively managing their public image. These situations might include those with high stress or change, multi-tasking, task saturation or accomplishment, poor person-job fit, or when a person feels comfortable enough with those they work with that they no longer manage their public image.

Hogan Motivators, Values, Preferences Inventory (MPVI)

The MVPI is an excellent tool to determine how well a person will fit with a job or organisation. It provides an effective evaluation of the fit between the individual and the organisational culture. The MVPI assesses the things that individuals enjoy, provides useful data on how an individual will manage others and assists individuals to understand their interests, motives and drivers.

About Jung Type Indicator Assessment (JTI)

Within organisations, the JTI can be used to enhance personal effectiveness and facilitate team building. The JTI questionnaire items have been found to be acceptable to people from a broad range of cultural backgrounds, providing a modern, reliable and valid measure of Jungian type.
