To inspire a culture of increased commitment to people development.
Our aim is to help our customers see the benefits of continuous personal and professional development for all employees, regardless of hierarchy, job or conventional qualifications.
Through our caring consulting and training methodologies, innovative thinking and tools, we expand our business horizons and provide people with holistic developmental solutions, adding value in organizations of all sizes.
We are always mindful that we work with people and for people and empathize with their needs.
We are open to new ideas and ways of doing business. We welcome feedback for improvement from each other and from our clients.
We embrace the diversity of individuals and the different strengths they bring into the blend of teamwork. We give value to maintaining a work-life balance.
We work with enthusiasm and a strong desire to achieve creative solutions that bring optimum results for Humanis and our clients.
We care about the impact we have on our customers’ organizations, their people and the impact that they have on our society.
Our vision, to increase the commitment to people development, is the driving force of our solutions, proven by ROI methodologies, measurable business results and direct feedback from the people involved.
We create diverse project teams where different backgrounds, ages, experience and knowledge come together to ensure manifold perspectives to our projects. Using our innovative way of thinking and our passion for our work, we produce a collage of suggested solutions, products and services that aim to exceed our customers’ expectations. We can offer mainline style training and facilitate organizational and team workshops. We can also combine “alternative” learning ways (games, simulations experiential involvement) using “alternative” associates (actors, stylists, movie critics) in “alternative” venues (theater, restaurants etc) to train in specific business needs and achieve optimal business results.
To ensure the right match for our clients we look at the organization as a whole: the business timeline, the people, the business strategy and of course, the corporate social responsibility and image. We then link past best practices with future business plans.
