  Two necessary conditions for dealing with diversity.
Did you know?
Kimberly and Darin Nei, of Hogan Assessment Systems recently published an article on personality and ethical leadership called "Rule Breakers and Attention Seekers: Personality Predictors of Integrity and Accountability in Leaders" in the International Journal of Selection and Assessment.
  Selecting ethical leaders is critical for organizations. Research suggests unethical leadership behavior can drive down market share by up to 41% and damage the company's reputation. Hogan's research shows that SMEs rank Integrity as the most critical competency across industries (see right) and rate Integrity as more important than competencies we often assume are critical (e.g., Driving Strategy; see below)
  Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory users (HBRI) you might have noticed 15 more questions in the assessment. ​Hogan Assessment Systems is currently testing out new items that have been added on to the end of the current HBRI. The additional questions beyond 24 do not impact a participant’s score.
  Free ability feedback report if you help us collect data. The assessment is called the ebilities Mental Agility Series Business Fundamentals, and is designed for identifying agile all-rounders in the general workforce. Data collection is going well, but we do need more black respondents in order to meet the sample stratification goals. If you can help with access to larger groups, please email
