Mercuri Urval is a leading global Executive Search, Professional Recruitment and Talent Advisory firm operating in over 70 countries every year.
Our industry was formed to help clients with a timeless problem: Employing the right people. In the beginning, we discovered that it was possible to employ more effectively than the norm – using unique and pioneering methods that provided for more open, valid and reliable selection. From the 1960s to today, we know that future success at work, that could not be directly observed, could still be reliably predicted.
Today rapid change, increased expectations and scarcity of talent make this problem more challenging than ever to solve. Especially at leadership level where the impact of getting decisions right or wrong is the largest. An evidence-based method is required. From a diverse pool, more than 90%* of leaders selected using the Mercuri Urval method succeed at work.
Mercuri Urval solves the client’s problem in a more thorough and evidence-based way, through a quality-assured consulting project.
