What is the Hogan Personality Inventory personality test?
The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a psychometric assessment tool that is designed to measure normal personality as observed in the work environment. The Hogan Personality Inventory has been developed specifically for the business community and is associated with predicting employee performance, including enabling companies to lower absenteeism and reduce turnover.
The Hogan Personality Inventory provides information on what is called the ‘bright side’ of personality. The ‘bright side’ of our personality relates to characteristics that exhibit during social interactions that can facilitate or inhibit a person achieving their goals in their relationships, education, life and in work.
What can the Hogan Personality Inventory personality test be used for?
Because the Hogan Personality Inventory assessment explains basic personality characteristics, the Hogan Personality Inventory is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following:
Individual assessment – the Hogan Personality Inventory can help a person decide which specific occupation they are best suited to.
Personnel selection – the Hogan Personality Inventory can help an organisation’s selection process through identifying applicants who display the personal characteristics that fit best to the requirements of the role and organisational culture.
Management development – the Hogan Personality Inventory can identify areas of possible development for managers.
Personality profiling with the Hogan Personality Inventory is becoming increasingly common practice for organisations in their selection process. This is due to the Hogan Personality Inventory being a cost effective means to assess how closely a candidate’s personality fits both the job criteria and the culture of the organisation. Because different occupations require different personality characteristics, the Hogan Personality Inventory can be used to aid decisions about personnel selection, career progression and career planning.
The Hogan Personality Inventory assessment test takes about 20 minutes to complete.
