Hogan Assessments Expands Global Reach Through Partnership With Colombia-Based THUOPER S.A.S.

Assessment and Consulting Solutions Provider Is the Latest Addition to Hogan's Global Alliances Practice

TULSA, OK--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2014) - Hogan Assessment Systems, Inc., a global leader in personality assessment, research and leadership development, welcomed THUOPER S.A.S. (Tools for Human and Organizational Performance), provider of assessment and consulting solutions in Colombia and Peru, to its Global Alliances practice.

Founded in 1999, Thuoper is headquartered in Bogotá and has additional offices in Medellin, Colombia and Lima, Peru. The company has been using Hogan assessments since 2012, and is now the latest member of Hogan's industry-leading network of international partners, operating in more than 56 countries across six continents and supplying comprehensive assessments in 43 languages. Through the partnership, Thuoper's clients will benefit from the insight gained from Hogan's comprehensive personality assessments to ensure they hire the right people, develop talented employees and see a positive impact on the bottom line.

"Thuoper plans to use Hogan to enhance performance and add value to organizations," said Liliana Lopez, president of Thuoper. "Having Hogan's portfolio of assessments will be a significant improvement for customers in our market."

As Hogan continues to extend the global reach of its assessment solutions, partnerships with in-country distributors are essential to its international success. The partnership with Thuoper is particularly timely. With many multi-national companies leaving traditional South American markets, many find more favorable business conditions in Colombia. These same companies are now investing resources and relying heavily on best-in-class human capital initiatives, such as those offered by Hogan, to ensure the right people are placed into leadership positions.

"Hogan is rapidly becoming one of the top recognized brands across all of Latin America, thanks to the hard work and efforts of our in-country distributors," said Dustin Hunter, consultant on the Global Alliances team at Hogan. "We are very excited to include Thuoper as a business partner to meet rising demand for talent management services. Thuoper's strategic market position and geographic dispersion will allow them to capitalize on the region's explosive growth, and we are privileged to count them as our new partner."
