Hogan’s assessment offerings measure normal personality characteristics, career derailment risks, core value drivers, and cognitive style. Hogan’s selection and development solutions are driven by a targeted mix of the following assessments:

HPI – The Hogan Personality Inventory measures normal personality characteristics necessary for job fit, effective relationships, and career success.

HDS – The Hogan Development Survey is the industry standard for measuring career-derailing personality characteristics.

MVPI – The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory reveals a person’s core values, goals, and interests, which impact organizational fit and indicate environments in which individuals will be motivated and satisfied.

Hogan’s online report architecture can generate a variety of report outputs from a single set of participant data. Because personality tends to remain stable over time, targeted development reports can be generated as the individual moves through the employee lifecycle.
