TULSA, Okla., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hogan Assessment Systems continues to assert its position as the global leader in personality assessment and consulting.
The firm released its annual International Business Outcomes Highlights report today, synthesizing results from 26 ROI studies conducted in 2009 and 2010 and providing detailed case studies that demonstrate the positive impact of assessment-driven solutions on key performance indicators.
Founded in 1987, Hogan entered the global arena in 1996. The firm now offers assessments in more than 40 languages in as many countries and has developed more than 20 local norms. Hogan distinguishes itself from other firms with its unmatched archive of more than 300 criterion-related validity studies and the largest team of dedicated doctorate- and masters-level Industrial-Organizational Psychology professionals in the industry.
"At Hogan, we know our reputation across the globe depends on our ability to create new translations that work just as well as our original assessments," said Jeff Foster, Hogan's Director of Research and Development. "The results presented in our International Business Outcome Highlights report demonstrate the value of approaching each translation with the same care, effort, and scientific rigor."
"There are thousands of personality assessment firms worldwide, but where Hogan excels is its commitment to validity – the degree to which predicted and real-world results correspond," said Dr. Robert Hogan, president at Hogan Assessment Systems. "Continuous research and refinement have always been the lynchpins of our business."
Points of interest from the study include:
- Consultants that satisfied the desirable profile at a Brazilian professional services firm were 2.5 times more likely to be identified as high performers.
- High-fit customer service representatives at an Australian utilities company received 20% higher call quality ratings, 18% higher customer satisfaction ratings, and 10% higher work performance ratings.
- Managers at a global energy company headquartered in Denmark that fit the desirable profile received 40% higher behavior ratings and 36% higher performance ratings.
Although each of the seven case studies presented in the International Business Outcomes Highlights feature Hogan products being used in vastly different capacities, the underlying theme is the same: Hogan's assessments provide a significant, long-term return on investment.
