The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a psychometric assessment tool that is designed to measure normal personality as observed in the work environment. The Hogan Personality Inventory has been developed specifically for the business community and is associated with predicting employee performance, including enabling companies to lower absenteeism and reduce turnover.
The Hogan Personality Inventory provides information on what is called the ‘bright side’ of personality. The ‘bright side’ of our personality relates to characteristics that exhibit during social interactions that can facilitate or inhibit a person achieving their goals in their relationships, education, life and in work.
Because the Hogan Personality Inventory assessment explains basic personality characteristics, the Hogan Personality Inventory is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following:
Personality profiling with the Hogan Personality Inventory is becoming increasingly common practice for organisations in their selection process. This is due to the Hogan Personality Inventory being a cost effective means to assess how closely a candidate’s personality fits both the job criteria and the culture of the organisation. Because different occupations require different personality characteristics, the Hogan Personality Inventory can be used to aid decisions about personnel selection, career progression and career planning.
The Hogan Personality Inventory assessment test takes about 20 minutes to complete.
