What began as a small start-up has evolved into being the industry leader in personality assessments serving customers throughout the globe offering products and services in 56 countries and 47 languages.
Having set the industry standards and serving more than half the Fortune 500 Hogan uses the powerful science of personality assessment to support organisations to select the right people, develop talented employees, build great leaders, and impact the bottom line.
Founded in 1987, Hogan Assessment Systems pioneered the use of personality assessment to improve workplace performance when Drs. Joyce and Robert Hogan challenged decades of academic tradition and criticism to become the first to demonstrate personality’s impact on organizational effectiveness. Today, Hogan Assessment Systems have the same level of commitment to that spirit of innovation that helped the organization become the industry leader.
The flagship assessment, the Hogan Personality Inventory, was the first measure of normal personality designed specifically for the business community, and the Hogan Development Survey was the first assessment to deal with performance risks outside the standard model of personality.
Being first to prove that personality predicts workplace performance by helping businesses dramatically reduce turnover and increase productivity sparked off the company and now thirty years later, the assessments are used by some of the most powerful companies in the world.
