Our success is directly linked to our main three values.

Customer Commitment

We believe in putting emphasis on building long-term relations with our clients. We spend much time and effort into getting to know them inside out. We have become valued trusted advisors and true partners for our clients.

We are big enough to serve your needs across the globe, yet small enough to adjust to you.


We provide service that delivers premium value to our customers, with no exceptions!

Our talent pool is larger and deeper than our competitors. We never work with the direct competitors of our customers.

We challenge how recruitment is traditionally being delivered and provide a more enhanced, consultative client and candidate experience.

We will go the extra mile and deliver above expectations as this is how winning is done.

Executive Assessment

For assessment of executives and other employees in demanding positions we can offer MUDAI

MUDAI (Multi Dimensional Aptitude Inventory) MUDAI , developed by Systemic Management, has been used successfully for almost ten years. MUDAI is a scientifically based tool for the assessment of personality factors, performance tendencies, behavioral tendencies, interests, and drives. MUDAI is specially designed for the assessment of executives and other employees in demanding positions.
MUDAI is a valuable tool in employee selection, employee development (training), career planning advice, and team development. As a special feature, the assessment tool also provides information on learning and problem-solving styles. This is very useful when putting together a team for optimum performance, for instance.

In comparison to many other common tests, MUDAI is more complex, goes deeper, and forms an ideal interface between business management and psychology. Over 200 items measure 30 basic parameters, organized in six major dimensions: Problem Solving Behavior, Personal Competencies, Social Competencies, Leadership Behavior, and Customer Orientation. In addition, each of these six dimensions is broken down into three to four sub-dimensions.

Because of the complexity of the assessment tool, evaluation of the results is not fully automated. Each individual assessment is informed by the management diagnostics know-how of experienced psychologists. The result is outstanding accuracy of the information as relevant to the particular job profile. And because test-takers answer many different types of questions and a large number of items per parameters and do not have the option to go back to change their answers, MUDAI also largely eliminates the possibility of unintentional or deliberate manipulation (socially desirable responses).
