Based on 80 years of research, the Hogan Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain.
By assessing values, you can understand what motivates job candidates and leaders to succeed and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive. The MVPI identifies what a person wants to do rather than what they may do in certain situations. In assessing the person-environment fit, the MVPI examines how well an individual fits within your organisation’s culture.
People are happiest working in environments that are compatible with their core values. For team development, this assessment tool evaluates the compatibility of staff members based on their motives. The Hogan MVPI assists in career planning by helping to formulate strategies for their careers that clarify the areas of interest they should pursue.
The purpose of the Hogan MVPI is to give employers a better understanding of what makes you tick and motivates candidates to succeed. In other words, this assessment can tell whether you are a right fit for the role or company, while also predicting your level of job satisfaction and potential for success within the company.
This assessment tool is recommended for:
- Senior leaders;
- Hiring managers
Organisations can use the information from the MVPI report to ensure that values held by job applicants and employees are consistent with those of the business. It is a powerful tool for building teams and understanding differences by shedding light on areas of compatibility and conflict among team members.
“The MVPI was the most valuable tool I used when I first made the decision to change careers. Not only was I able to understand why I was feeling so unsatisfied in my previous role, but I was then able to uncover my most ingrained values that have allowed me to pursue a new career and position that I am passionate about.”
