About us

We help define where your business is today, and where it will be in the future.

Then we get there - together.

With an ambition to innovate an industry that was standing still. This is where our story begins.

The realization of this ambition has made us one of the fastest growing consulting companies in the Nordics, and a strategic partner to our customers.

When The Assessment Company was established, our question was: Why do all companies recruit in the same way, despite the fact that the accuracy of traditional methods is too low?

The solution was PEOPLE LAB. ™, one of our most important tools across our services. A training arena for the business community, with realistic case and filming as a starting point. Self-awareness is often the start of behavioral change, which allows us to create other and better results.

In PEOPLE LAB people are placed at the center. As an employee in a training process or an applicant in a recruitment process, you will get the opportunity to show your abilities, strengths as well as where you can improve.

As an employee in a strategy or change process, you gain insight into what your organization will need in the future, what creates customer value, and how you and your colleagues can contribute to driving the organization forward.

With thorough insight and research, we help identifying the needs of your business for the future. Using a unique combination of services, we follow the organization throughout the process of meeting these needs.

This is how we facilitate so that people, in collaboration with the organisation, can access the future.
