When competent leadership prevails, people and companies prosper. But more than 60% of leaders fail, and it costs organizations dearly.
Let's change that.
People don’t always fit in a box. Our assessments offer the range of measurement required to understand people’s strengths, weaknesses, values, and approach to problem solving.
Our assessments predict performance.
THE DARK SIDE
When the pressure's on, the line between strength and weakness isn't always clear — drive becomes ruthless ambition, attention to detail becomes micromanaging. The dark side of personality derails careers and companies, but it doesn't have to.
Discover your derailers.
As pioneers in industrial-organizational psychology and personality assessment, Drs. Joyce and Robert Hogan were the first to prove personality predicts performance. Today, Hogan maintains the largest and best-regarded thought leadership in the industry.
We are advancing the science of personality.
Founded in 1987, Hogan challenged decades of academic tradition and criticism to become the first to demonstrate personality’s impact on organizational success. This is the story of how a shoestring start-up challenged industry standards to become a global giant in personality assessments.
This is what it's all about.
Hogan leads the world in personality assessment and leadership development. With products and services in 56 countries and 47 languages, what began as a small startup has evolved into the industry leader serving more than half of the Fortune 500.
Our footprint spans the globe.
Hogan Certification Programs
Powered by more than 40 years of scientific research and validation, Hogan’s personality assessments help you hire the right people, develop your employees, and build the strong leaders your organization needs to thrive.
Organizations depend on leaders to make important tactical decisions, manage changing market trends, and set strategic vision. When competent leadership prevails, people and companies prosper. Bad leadership is almost always accompanied by disengaged workers, corporate corruption, and, eventually, business failure. Hogan gives leaders a clear understanding of their performance capabilities, challenges, and core drivers, and provides them the strategic self-awareness that makes good leaders great.
Drs. Joyce and Robert Hogan were the first to prove that personality predicts workplace performance by helping businesses dramatically reduce turnover and increase productivity by hiring the right people, developing key talent, and evaluating leadership potential. Thirty years later, our assessments are used at some of the most powerful companies in the world.
The Dark Side
People are stressed. Especially at work.
Between demanding bosses, pressing deadlines, or mind-numbing monotony, the working world is full of stressors. The problem is, the way you act when the pressure is on could be wrecking your reputation, and, subsequently, your career. The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) is the only personality assessment that identifies career derailers.
When Bob and Joyce Hogan launched their small startup in 1987, the business plan was simple: build a team of talented, ambitious people and get out of their way. Three decades later, we still maintain that standard by hiring people who believe in our products, embrace our “work hard, play hard” philosophy, and have the skills to take our business to the next level.
Hogan remains an industry leader because of our bold, swing-for-the-fence mentality. Hogan stands alone as the last of the true independents. We’re going to do it our way. We’re in this to make a difference.
We’re dedicated to playing a vital role to the business community on a local, national, and global level, and we want to share our story with you. Connect with us through social media, or send us a message to learn more about Hogan or becoming a part of our team.
