Hogan Assessments give leaders a clear understanding of their performance capabilities, challenges, and core drivers, and provides them the strategic self-awareness that makes good leaders great.

The key to success is building a leadership team whose abilities and aspirations match the organisation’s future needs.
OPQ is excellent in supporting recruitment decisions and the personal development for senior and middle management executives. It invites candidates to describe their behaviour, preference and attitudes, in relation to different aspects of their working life. The candidate’s responses are then compared against those of a large relevant comparison group to give a profile of the candidate’s perceived preferences at work.
