The Concerted Action Program for Maintaining Employment (PACME)

Quebec announces PACME to fight COVID-19

The government of Québec announced the Concerted Action Program for Maintaining Employment (officially title Programme actions concertées pour le maintien en emploi or PACME–COVID-19), a 100-million-dollar fund for training programs and implementation of good practices within organisations to improve business operations and begin efforts in restoring Quebec’s economy.



The good news?

Our Hogan Assessment Certification workshops (held by D-TECK) qualify for the PACME – COVID-19 program!

On top of saving 25% on the original cost of registration, take advantage of this new incentive to acquire new knowledge and skills in psychometric evaluations at next to no cost.

This Hogan training teaches you the knowledge required to interpret Hogan reports and apply the three core Hogan assessments:

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)

  • This assessment describes normal, or bright-side personality – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best –  using 7 dimensions of personality.

The Hogan Development Survey (HDS)

  • This assessment describes the dark side of personality – qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success, as well as mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.

The Hogan Motives, Values and Preferences Inventory (MVPI)

  • This assessment 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 candidates to succeed, and in what context they will be the most productive.


These reports help you select the right candidates, promote the development of employees currently in your organisation and improve the overall performance of your workforce. These factors contribute to your organisation’s efforts in restoring the overall performance following this situation which is strongly affecting the labor market. This workshop was developed for human resources professionals who wish to use Hogan reports for coaching, leadership development, talent acquisition (hiring), identifying high potentials, and many other objectives.
