Integer Holdings Corporation, a global medical device manufacturing company, partnered with Hogan to improve its selection process for Managers. Managers are responsible for planning, directing, and coordinating manufacturing operations within the company.
Hogan’s data science team worked with Integer to develop a scientifically valid screening tool to improve the quality of Integer’s Manager applicant pool. Hogan identified specific competencies, characteristics, and values that predict job success. Hogan built a custom personality profile using the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), Hogan Development Survey (HDS), and Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) that enabled Integer to select higher-performing Manager candidates.
Critical Characteristics Assessed by Hogan
In order to build the most accurate personality profile, Hogan’s data science team determined that the following characteristics and values had the greatest impact on job success:
- Strengths – Composure, drive, conscientiousness, and stays current with industry trends
- Risks – Volatility, closed-mindedness, limited communication skills, and complacency
- Values – Wants to help the team and is driven to make an impact
By incorporating the Hogan profile into the candidate assessment process, Integer was able to more effectively select Manager candidates with the characteristics most important for career success.
Hogan’s research shows that by using the Hogan profile, Integer can expect to see a 24% improvement* in overall accuracy, selecting 12% more good hires and avoiding 12% more bad hires.
