The Hogan Personality Inventory and the Hogan Development Survey

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is an industry leader for measuring personality in the workplace; it was developed specifically for the business community and has a 25-year history of successfully predicting employee performance and helping companies reduce turnover, absenteeism, shrinkage, and poor customer service.

The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) identifies personality-based performance risks and derailers of interpersonal behavior. These derailers affect an individual’s leadership style and actions. If these behavior patterns are recognized, however, they can be compensated by development and coaching.

Unique features of these tools include:

  • 15- to 20-minute completion time
  • Test items and reports available in multiple languages
  • Normed on more than 500,000 working adults (HPI) and over 10,000 working managers (HDS) worldwide
  • Validated on more than 200 occupations covering all major industries (HPI)
  • No invasive or intrusive items
  • No adverse impact
  • Instantaneous scoring and reporting output
  • Online administration by protected access
