Hogan Talent Acquisition

Harness the science of personality to decode talent acquisition

From entry-level to CEO, our hiring assessments can be used for a variety of recruitment purposes. We offer intuitive and data-based tools to screen candidates at high volumes and hand-select the ideal candidate from a curated list.

Everyone has made a bad hire. In fact, research shows that more than half of new employees fail. Considering a bad hire typically costs 150% of his or her annual salary, chances are you don’t want it to happen again. We can help. Our talent acquisition tools use personality assessment to identify candidates’ work style, understand their core drivers, and recognize patterns of behavior that could get in their way. Armed with this powerful insight, you can improve hiring, increase productivity, and impact the bottom line. Once you know what you’re looking for, finding the perfect fit is easy. Hogan talent acquisition reports include, General Employability, Express, Basis and Configure reports.
