The Hartman Value Profile Retention Tool – Not Just Another Personality Test

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Fri, May 22, 2020 @ 12:17 PM

hartman-value-profileThe Hartman Value Profile (HVP) has been used in major U.S. healthcare settings since the 1970s for recruitment, placement, development, and team-building – and, with exceptional results. Its success is based on its mathematical algorithms and axiology – or, the science of values.

Though we don’t like to believe it, we are all creatures of patterns. Through his studies, logician and philosopher Robert Hartman found that we run through these patterns each day to make decisions. Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, Hartman created a proprietary database of leadership profiles.

Today, these profiles are identified using the Judgement Index™, developed by Hartman’s protégé, Steve Byrum and his associates. This assessment can reveal a wide range of critically important business attitudes and behaviors, including employees’:

  • Level of engagement
  • Level of focus
  • Ability to follow directions
  • Trainability
  • Problem-solving aptitude
  • Energy for solving problems
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Work-life balance

Unlike the many personality tests (e.g., Myers-Briggs), a Hartman Value Profile assessment reveals underlying values that drive behavior and why these behaviors result in success (or failure) across leaders and teams. The assessment can also be repeated over time to measure a worker’s professional growth and progress. Personalities don’t change, but values often do.

Successful companies and HR consultants continue to use the HVP today because of its unique ability to foster business continuity, executive development, and succession planning. In other words, it helps you hire – and RETAIN – those employees that are likely to thrive in your organization.
