We employ highly skilled and experienced consultants with backgrounds in psychology, business consulting and human resources. Our international network of partners and distributors enable us to provide seamless global solutions.

PBC is the Australian and New Zealand Distributor of Hogan Assessments and the author of a range of diagnostics including the Hogan 360 Suite, Agile Leader 360, Graduate Talent Assessment (GradTA), High Performing Team Assessment (HPTA), and co-author of the Hogan Safety Climate Survey. We are the Australian distributor of Meta, a measure of entrepreneurial talent, the Risk Type Compass, and integrity assessments including MiNT and WRISc.

"PBC’s deep expertise in the suite of products offered by Hogan Assessments not only makes them a superb business partner for Hogan, but more importantly, PBC is an invaluable resource for identifying and developing leadership talent in any organisation anywhere on the planet. In addition to their expertise with the Hogan assessments, PBC has developed a superb stand-alone Hogan 360 assessment that parallels the Hogan suite. The Hogan 360 is also a uniquely powerful method for evaluating and enhancing the performance of teams—there is nothing like it anywhere for team development."

PBC is committed to eradicating acts of modern day and human slavery from within its business, subsidiaries and supply chains. PBC acknowledges responsibility under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with our suppliers of goods and services.


PBC provides employees with equitable, fair and legally compliant conditions of work. PBC has a suite of polices to ensure our staff, including contractors, are afforded a workplace, and working conditions that are in accordance with Australian and New Zealand law, are safe and free from discrimination. Wages, hours of work and other conditions are regularly audited to ensure compliance.

PBC has assessed the risk of modern slavery within our direct business operations as low, given the short nature of our supply chain, the professional services nature of our business, the level of control we have over our operations, and our comprehensive labour management. However, we recognise that we may be indirectly exposed to these risks through our supply chain and partner network. All suppliers are subject to critical review before engagement by senior representatives.

Higher risk purchase categories via our supply chain and partner networks.

We have identified the following procurement categories that may have a higher risk of modern slavery:

• Facilities service providers (e.g., cleaning services, office maintenance, waste management and security)
• Information & Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure and hardware

We are committed to undertaking our due diligence processes when contracting with external suppliers and to identifying and assessing any indications of suppliers being of high risk. We will not work with high-risk suppliers unless we have conducted the appropriate assessment that our standards will not be compromised.

We have not been made aware of any allegations of human trafficking / slavery activities against any of our subsidiaries, suppliers or partners. If an allegation were to be made, we would take the appropriate actions immediately which would include informing the relevant authorities.


We are committed to training our employees and ensuring they have an understanding and respect for how their choices can have far-reaching impacts upon basic human rights across the globe.

PBC will provide training to inform employees of this policy and what is considered Modern Slavery. We will continue to identify and evaluate risks relating to human rights and develop our policies, procedures, and training to help combat modern slavery.
