Hogan Assessments

PFP Advisory is an authorized reseller of Hart Consulting  and uses the Hogan tool, a personality assessment provider with more than 30 years’ experience in analysing the relation between personality assessment and occupational performance, providing predictive results.

The Hogan Assessments are used to get data-based personality insights to maximize organizational success. They have a predictive power, as the different tests examine the personality from every angle. By measuring an individual’s bright side, dark side, and core values, they are able to achieve the highest level of predictive validity in the industry and provide an unbiased and scientific basis for making informed decisions about people.

Hogan can measure Behaviour and Values:

Hogan Personality Inventory

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) describes the bright side of personality, or everyday characteristics that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. Whether your goal is to find the right hire or develop stronger leaders, assessing bright-side personality gives you valuable insight into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be.

Hogan Development Survey

The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes the dark side of personality, or characteristics that emerge in times of increased pressure that can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail a person’s chances of success. By assessing dark-side personality, you can recognize and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.

Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory

The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside, or the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of job and work environment they will be the most productive.

For recruitment / candidate evaluation purposes, we can provide multiple types of reports. Here is a selection:

The most common and comprehensive for middle management or individual contributors is the Insight Series, a report which includes information deriving from HPI, HDS, and MVPI testing. Strategic self-awareness is vital for all leaders, but not all leaders need an exhaustive personality analysis. The Insight Series provides emerging and mid-level managers with a concise overview of their strengths, performance risks, and core values. This straight-to-the- point report series offers the self-awareness needed to perform effectively.

Leadership Forecast Series. Those at the top need the most robust and thorough development data possible, and Hogan’s Leadership Forecast Series offers just that. This series of reports gives leaders a complete understanding of their performance capabilities, challenges, and underlying motivators along with a five-step development planning worksheet and career development primer. Paired with a one-on-one feedback session, leaders will be well equipped to build high-performing teams and thriving organizations.

Leader Basis. To properly evaluate a leader’s potential, you must understand the person's everyday behaviours, personal motivators, and derailers that can hinder success. Leader Basis measures a candidate’s personality from every angle and compares their scores to characteristics of the most effective leaders we’ve found in our 30 years of research.

High Potential. One of the hardest parts of finding high-potential employees is defining potential. We define potential as the ability to build teams that outperform the competition. The Hogan High Potential report is designed to maximize leadership potential by helping emergent leaders become more effective, and effective leaders become more emergent.

For the team assessment, the process is more complex and includes individual testing and a team report which answers questions such as: What mix of skills would help this team be successful? Who will work best together? What motives and values do we have in common? What shared challenges might the team face and how can we best address them?

The team report includes information about team roles, derailers, culture, as well as the individual scores of the team members, and helps leaders manage their business units with increased efficiency. With this tool, we

  • understand team roles based on personality and values
  • pinpoint team derailers and barriers to success
  • highlight team culture and the foundation for goal alignment
  • explore individual scores and how they contribute to team roles.
