We’re excited to announce that our very own Dr. Robert Hogan was given the 2020 RHR International Award for Excellence in Consulting Psychology at the Society of Consulting Psychology (SCP) annual conference on February 8 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The award is granted to individuals who epitomize the standards of excellence that RHR and the SCP seek to perpetuate. Dr. Hogan received the award in recognition of his distinguished career and his significant contributions to the practice of consulting psychology.
“Bob Hogan has made an extraordinary contribution to the understanding of how leaders can leverage strengths and avoid derailing behaviors as they lead organizations,” said Dr. Paul Winum, senior partner and co-head of Board & CEO Services for RHR International. “He is a well-deserving recipient of the RHR Award for Excellence in Consultation and embodies the professionalism and impact our firm seeks to deliver and recognize through this award.”
Deemed by his peers as one of the world’s greatest living psychologists, Hogan is known for his ground-breaking research on personality and how it translates to organizational and leadership effectiveness. The same study also ranked Hogan among the top five greatest personality psychologists of all time. In addition to Hogan, the group consisted of famous psychologists, such as Sigmund Freud, Hans Eysenck, Gordon Allport, and Raymond Cattell.
“I can’t think of a person more deserving of this award than our founder and friend, Dr. Robert Hogan,” said Hogan Assessments CEO Scott Gregory, PhD. “His work disrupted and advanced the use of personality assessment to improve workplace performance and organizational success, and his work continues to drive valid and fair employment decisions for millions of people around the globe each year. He’s a legend in personality psychology, and he continues to be a tireless advocate for the science of personality.”
