Consultant Values Hogan Assessment Instruments
Human resources consultant Christine Fahnestock, Fahnestock & Associates, LLC, of Glastonbury, CT, has used "all sorts of assessment instruments." She also has years of experience running assessment centers. "I find that the Hogan Personality Inventory and Hogan Development Survey provide unique, additional information that I can't get elsewhere," she says.
In one of her most recent consulting engagements, Ms. Fahnestock assists a client in selecting candidates for supervisory, managerial and executive positions.
"They are in a very safety conscious environment. It's important for them to obtain a complete picture of the candidate," she says. The Hogan instruments are one of four criteria. "The Hogan data has equal weight with three other criteria. The instruments help us find patterns and factors that concur across all the criteria."
She adds, "It gives my clients a fuller and more predictive assessment. It also allows them to back off from some of the more time intensive and expensive approaches to assessment."
Performance Programs supplies Ms. Fahnestock with access to the on-line Hogan instruments, and then provides reports and assistance with interpretation as needed. "PPI acts as a consultant's consultant. They're my research partner," she says. "They give me support with normative data and customization. They're available when my client needs the specialized support"
"It's rare to find a supplier who takes an interest in helping me do a better job in my business," concludes Chris Fahnestock. "Ultimately, it's the client who benefits."
