Thats what Menat is passioned about!”
Menat was established in 2005 after we recognised a clear market demand for solutions that would differentiate companies in their HR strategy. The assessment market was in a developing stage, but no solutions really put the development of individuals or organisations in their own control!
We recognise that there is so much room for improvement, and an ever dier need for a model and approach that takes a different angle in finding strategic solutions for individuals and organisations, that a big difference can be made to the current HR methodologies as we know it! Passion for change but especially the urge to improve the lives of individuals and to create business opportunities for organisations is what drives us! We understand the value of the ‘sharing economy’ and apply this to our business approach. We surround ourselves by experts with the right knowledge, skills and capacity which can be applied to projects we are working on.
