Hogan Personality Inventory distributed by Advanced People Strategies

Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)

The Hogan Personality Inventory is a contemporary measure of normal personality to predict job performance. It was one of the first personality questionnaires developed specifically for business and commercial application.

Further Information

The HPI effectively measures the "Big 5" personality characteristics that are generally accepted by psychologists globally as distinct personality factors. Hogan's extensive and unique database archive of job validation studies offers a rich source of information that can be called upon to identify what good looks like for a wide range of job roles and functions. With multiple language options for both on-line administration and reporting, the HPI is a natural choice for international application.

Use and Application 

The HPI is used extensively worldwide by leading organisations and consultancies for selection, development and corporate talent and people management initiatives and strategies.
