Talent Selection

PBC uses a data driven approach to offer end-to-end selection solutions customised to suit your organisation. We provide off the shelf solutions or a customised, research-based approach to ensure your selection processes are efficient and effective in identifying the right candidates, at the right time, in the right role. PBC's selection solutions are tailored to your organisation to reduce turnover, increase engagement and productivity, lower selection costs and maximise performance.

Talent Development

PBC believes that all talent can be nurtured, and with self-awareness, effort and persistence employees can develop and improve.

PBC's global development solutions use a combination of diagnostics, such as personality assessments and multi-rater/360 assessments, in combination with our consulting services to build capability and performance from graduates to high potentials and senior leaders. Our solutions cater to individuals, teams, and inform organisational development programs.

Executive Coaching

PBC's Coaching philosophy is evidenced based, context specific, and draws on over three decades of global research benchmarking leadership capability and leadership effectiveness.

We employ highly experienced and qualified Organisational Psychologists, Coaches and Facilitators to ensure that the coaching and facilitation solutions we provide are grounded in an evidence base and are delivered with exceptional quality.

Organisational Focus

All organisations rely on two key groups of people to be successful: their employees and their customers.

PBC's global organisational solutions enable businesses to measure the opinions of both these groups to provide meaningful insight into the strengths and challenges facing the business. Armed with this information, they can then put in place targeted plans to address any issues and measure improvement over time.

Our business consulting services help to incorporate these insights into business improvement initiatives to drive performance and improve bottom line results.

Hogan Certification Workshop Dates

Peter Berry Consultancy are proud to deliver certification workshops for professionals seeking to administer Hogan Personality Assessments for talent selection or development. Our interactive workshop unlocks the theory, structure, and application of these assessments, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to deliver quality feedback. Whether you’re a consultant, coach, HR professional, recruiter, or just someone interested in personality, get certified today.

The Hogan Assessment Certification Workshop teaches participants to use three Hogan inventories:

  • Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)
  • Hogan Development Survey (HDS)
  • Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)

The Hogan Assessment Certification Workshop includes many valuable benefits for each participant:

  • Personal assessment and a debrief session with a consultant prior to the workshop.
  • Access to the Hogan Online Learning Module prior to the workshop.
  • A copy of the Hogan Workbook and an e-Hogan Guide.
  • Electronic copies of all three technical manuals (HPI, HDS, and MVPI) plus access to all of the latest publications and research articles.
  • Two assessment IDs (including a feedback session with a PBC consultant) to be used after the certification workshop.
  • Facility to order Hogan profiles to meet your organisation’s business needs.
  • Ongoing access to consultants for difficult assessment interpretations and implementation questions.

The Hogan Advanced Workshop is designed for those looking to gain deeper interpretive insights from Hogan personality assessment data. The workshop teaches:

  • How to extract maximum interpretive value from the three core personality assessments by drawing connections across scales and assessments including resolving competing or complex scale combinations.
  • How to extract value from the subscales, interpret low scores on HDS and MVPI scales, and how to avoid common interpretive mistakes.
