VIDEO: Hogan’s Karen Fuhrmeister Delivers TEDx Talk at University of Tulsa

Have you ever taken a Buzzfeed quiz to tell you what Harry Potter house you’re in? Or maybe what character from The Office you are most like? How much weight do you put on the results of those quizzes? Would you want companies making hiring decisions based on similar assessments?

In March, Hogan Senior Research Consultant Karen Fuhrmeister gave a TEDx Talk at the University of Tulsa on “The Science Behind Hiring Assessments: It’s Not a Waste of Time.” The talk aimed to inform students and other attendees about the use of personality assessments in the workplace, and how this trend isn’t going away any time soon. In fact, it’s becoming more and more likely that those going through the interviews will be asked to take one of these assessments.

Diversity and the Dark Side

Diversity in the workplace remains a top concern for HR professionals and hiring managers. Changing the hiring process is a necessary step in preventing discrimination and keeping ahead of the competition --  a recent study from the Center for Talent Innovation found workplaces that ensure diversity enjoy more success and attract more innovative employees than workplaces that don’t.

However, any institutional change will fail if leaders and hiring managers aren’t driven to build a climate that encourages diversity. It’s not always easy to spot those who will let their biases negatively impact those around them, but early research suggests those with high Bold and Excitable scales might not foster inclusive environments.

Hogan’s in-house research team is always looking to find new applications for our assessments. With that in mind, Brandon Ferrell and Steve Nichols conducted a meta-analysis of results from four Hogan Development Survey (HDS) studies to measure which personality scales hinder leaders’ ability to leverage diversity.
