TULSA, Okla., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hogan Assessments, a global leader in personality assessment and leadership development, has launched Hogan Configure, a new online platform that helps organizations evaluate potential talent based on competencies.
Hogan Configure leverages three decades of data to create the only competency solution that puts Hogan's predictive power and scientific rigor at your fingertips. The easy-to-use, three-step process allows employers to create, customize and compare candidates in order to determine their key attributes, qualities and skills.
"Competencies are the key to talent," Hogan CEO Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic said. "Hogan Configure allows companies to decode that talent, and accurately identify those who will thrive in a particular position, whether it's a new hire or someone within your organization."
The simple yet robust platform provides organizations with multiple functions that make it easier to assess talent. Candidates can be viewed side by side to understand the strengths and shortcomings each bring to table, and who stands out. Competencies can be added or removed to capture the nuances of a particular position or organizational culture. Hogan Configure also allows companies to start from scratch or from a pre-designed job family template proven to predict what it takes to succeed in the job.
"This is a significant breakthrough in the world of work as we've been able to translate years of hard science into an easy solution," Chamorro-Premuzic said. "Hogan Configure has the ability to predict any work-related outcome, helping organizations unlock people's true potential. Instead of relying on intuitive methods, managers can now make data-driven decisions about talent."
For nearly 30 years, Hogan has helped some of the most advanced and powerful organizations in the world get the right people in the right place. Now, Hogan Configure brings the same game-changing people analytics to you.
"Competencies were first introduced to the workforce more than 40 years ago, and they are still the primary component to predicting job performance," Chamorro-Premuzic said. "However, our approach to evaluating them has changed because personality has advanced our ability to understand and predict what people do at work."
