The Science of Personality
Hogan challenged decades of academic tradition and criticism to become the first to demonstrate personality’s impact on organizational success, pioneering the use of personality assessment to improve workplace performance.
Founded in 1987 by Drs. Joyce and Robert Hogan, Hogan leads the world in personality assessment and leadership development. With products and services in 56 countries and 47 languages, what began as a small startup has evolved into the industry leader serving more than half of the Fortune 500.
Grounded in more than four decades of validated research, Hogan assessments were the first to scientifically measure personality for business. Thirty years later, we are committed to the same spirit of innovation that helped us become the industry leader.
When Bob and Joyce Hogan launched their small startup, the business plan was simple: build a team of talented, ambitious people and get out of their way. Three decades later, we still maintain that standard by hiring people who believe in our products, embrace our “work hard, play hard” philosophy, and emphasize a positive company culture.
Over the last decade, we’ve experienced rapid growth in our employee base and global distributorship. Our headquarters in downtown Tulsa accommodates our Tulsa workforce and provides a state-of-the-art space to educate and entertain partners and clients from around the world.
We built the Hogan brand on prestige and quality. While other providers have merged with large corporations, Hogan stands alone as the last of the true independents. Hogan remains an industry leader because of our bold, swing-for-the-fence mentality. We’re going to do it our way. We’re in this to make a difference.
Inspired by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which made discrimination illegal in the hiring process, the Hogans were dedicated to developing non-discriminatory personality assessments. Our assessments allow employers to turn a blind eye to gender, ethnicity, and race as part of the selection process.
Hogan has a robust distributor network across the world. We stand united with our global partners as we work toward the common goal of improving the global workforce. We’re dedicated to playing a vital role to your organization’s success, and we want to share our story with you.
