The Firm

Human Assets Consulting was founded by seasoned executive search and management consultants. We aim to provide clients with a truly bespoke service, focused solely on identifying and developing human assets.

Leveraging our extensive experience from management consulting, senior executive roles and in-depth industry insight, we deliver precise analysis for every single project. We are based on Norwegian business culture and ethics, combined with vast international experience. Furthermore, the firm is partner of Kennedy Executive whereby tapping into a global network of more than 60 experienced consultants covering Europe, North America, Africa and Australia

Traditionally, our industry has been transaction focused, without team based delivery models. We want to change that, simply because we believe teams work better than individuals (and it is more fun), and that clients and candidates benefit from having a long-term perspective.

As a value driven company we will:

Only engage when we can truly add value
Only work for clients we can identify with
Work hard for diversity, because it is good for business
Never accept assignments in an area we do not master
