Assessment is a part of CareerSearch’s business areas where we, as a part of the recruitment process, uncover potential candidates’ personalities, including how they react under pressure. CareerSearch uses the recognised Hogan concept as a part of the assessment process.
Hogan Assessment System
The Hogan-test addresses itself to those of you who wish to focus on your personal strengths and development areas, together with your values – both as a manager and an employee.
Hogan Assessment Systems use three personality tests, which tell why you do what you do:
The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) evaluates the personality-wise characteristics (potential) which are necessary for career success (‘Employability’), and for the ability to create and maintain cooperative and team relationships in the broadest terms. The focus is on the candidate’s resourcefulness and potential.
The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) measures eleven forms of career-inhibiting behaviour. The negative effect of these behavioural tendencies is well documented, and self-knowledge via HDS is the key to avoiding the negative consequences of career-inhibiting behavioural tendencies. A focus on the building up of management strategies, based on the identified, self-created challenges by applying the candidate’s resourcefulness and potential.
The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)
evaluates managers’ and employees’ core values and illustrates what motivates and drives the candidate. It focuses on building up a motivation strategy, based on a deeper understanding of one’s own motivation factors and values.
Via the Hogan Assessment System, both the company and the candidate gain insight into personal characteristics, as well as relevant development areas. Moreover, one gains insight into the candidate’s personality-wise ‘inner side’, which elucidates their core values and driving forces, and one gains an understanding of how others may perceive the candidate as a person.
In addition to using Hogan in a recruitment context, CareerSearch offers personal coaching based on the aforementioned personality assessment, with the purpose of identifying tools for mapping out forward-looking management strategies, and strategies for changing and/or maintaining behaviour.
