Hogan Assessments

HOGAN - Authorised Distributor

We have used HOGAN more than 1000 times to date, and no other personality assessment has convinced us more. We receive very good feedback from our clients.
HOGAN has been proven to provide better results in predicting job suitability, organization fit and identification of development needs at work. Personnel selection decisions become more precise, personnel development more focused and effective. Hogan Assessment Systems is a premium provider of personality assessments.

HOGAN makes your decisions easier.

What characterizes HOGAN?

  • HOGAN refers to research traditions which, in the case of the five-factor model (FFM), go back to the 1930s and have a great backing in science. HOGAN is based on the quality criteria defined in DIN 33430 for diagnostic instruments and processes. The DIN standard is confirmed by the German Institute for Standardization (Deutsches Insitut für Normung e.V.), who is also the German ISO member body. The technical manuals in which we supply these references can be found here.

  • HOGAN continually conducts empirical studies on the relationship with business outcomes.
  • Different norms allow to compare results with a global workforce or with country-specific benchmarks.
  • HOGAN does not discriminate according to age, sex, origin.

What are practical reasons to use HOGAN?

  • HOGAN has been developed with the goal of predicting behavior in organizations and being able to use the information gained in a practical way.

  • HOGAN covers the entire spectrum of the Employee Life Cycle.
  • The HOGAN procedures are available in over 40 languages.
  • The inventories measure the reputation, not the self-image like other personality questionnaires.

What does HOGAN deliver?

  • HOGAN is the only provider worldwide, that uses three perspectives on personality to describe employees in the workplace in a truly differentiated manner.

  • Success factors in day-to-day business.
  • Behavior under pressure, stress or uncertainty.
  • Values, preferred environments and types of decisions.

RELEVANT’s virtual Hogan certification workshops take place over four half days. Unless otherwise noted, workshops will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. During the kick-off appointment at 8:30 a.m. you will receive a short introduction and a technical check. Please allow about 30 minutes for this.

The registration deadline for our virtual Hogan certifications is two weeks before the date at the most to enable you and us to prepare adequately.

Would you like to participate and there is no suitable date? Contact us and we will gladly take your wishes into account when planning the workshop.

By participating in a virtual Hogan Certification Workshop, you will be able and entitled to use all Hogan reports based on the HPI, HDS and MVPI assessments in accordance with the international standard of Hogan Assessment Systems.

As a cooperation partner and distributor of Hogan Assessments, we are happy to provide you with the latest materials available on the market and keep you informed about product launches. We would be delighted if you subscribed to our quarterly newsletter.

Currently, we are planning to offer further, so-called Hogan Advanced Certifications, which are aimed at Hogan certified persons who have already gained experience in the application of the assessment. Dates for the Hogan Advanced Interpretation and Hogan Advanced Feedback Workshops (two half days each) can be found under the SAFARI section. These will be piloted in English language first.

As an experienced I/O psychologist I know many instruments and assessments. Hogan is comprehensive and profound at the same time – it also is scientifically grounded and its quality well tested. However, what interests the user in the business the most: With Hogan, people recognize why well-intentioned behavior often does not lead to the desired outcome, and they can immediately derive what needs to be changed and in what way to increase their own impact tremendously. I have yet to meet a Hogan user who has not drawn added value from the result for him or herself.

Dr. René Kusch and his team know how personality impacts in the workplace. I know of no one in the German-speaking world who has so thoroughly mastered the tool as René. That enriches every dialogue. Working with Relevant is simply fun – professional, extremely easy-going and always with a good joint purpose.”
