Hogan Assessments and Peter Berry Consultancy Introduce Groundbreaking Multi-Rater Feedback Solution

Hogan 360 Powered by Peter Berry Consultancy Provides Real-Time Insight Into Performance to Enhance Professional Development

TULSA, OK--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - Hogan Assessment Systems today announced the release of the Hogan 360° report, developed in conjunction with Peter Berry Consultancy. A comprehensive multi-rater feedback tool, this innovative solution enables individuals and leaders at any level of an organization to understand how their peers, managers and direct reports view their performance.

For many professionals, reputation is everything. Yet, there is often a great disparity between how individuals view themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and how those traits are viewed by others. As a poor reputation can be detrimental to an individual's work performance and professional relationships, the ability to understand external perceptions is integral to ongoing professional development.

Hogan 360° is a simple and intuitive report that provides a real-time look at an individual's attitude, behavior and performance. Developed to deliver career development insight and identify areas for strategic coaching, the report shares feedback from the individual's colleagues and subordinates to reveal hidden strengths and offer quantitative and qualitative feedback in an easy-to interpret, predictive framework. As a result, individuals can set their development plans to achieve immediate improvement and learn how they can reach the next level of their careers.

When used in conjunction with Hogan's personality-based assessments, organizations can combine behavioral ratings with assessment results to better review manager performance and make more informed decisions regarding succession planning. Developmentally-focused executives also benefit from the feedback from colleagues and subordinates that may otherwise be difficult to obtain. In addition, organizations can effectively develop their leaders, while identifying top talent and building high-performing teams.

"The Hogan 360° uniquely captures both behavioral and business competencies and provides powerful insights into managerial and leadership capabilities," said Peter Berry, managing director of Peter Berry Consultancy. "It is a business-based 360° that identifies leading edge challenges such as resilience, innovation and strategy. The Hogan 360° is based on over 15 years of research."

"The ability to understand how others view an individual's performance is key to understanding one's strengths and development needs and taking the steps toward improvement," said Ryan Ross, Hogan vice president. "With the Hogan 360° report, we are able to provide professionals with comprehensive feedback that comes not from an external coach or other outside resources, but from the people with whom they work most closely. As a result, they benefit from in-depth feedback about their work performance that, when combined with our leading assessments, cannot be achieved through any other method or solution on the market."
