IKIGAI successful recruitments, meaningful careers.
We are a modern recruitment and personnel assessment partner. Assessing the fit between the recruiting organization and the candidate guides our actions. We provide psychological information to support recruitments so that our clients can find the most suitable candidates who will shine in their work.

About us

Our Ikigai-philosophy.
Ikigai refers to the fit between individual and his or her environment. People thrive at best in a job and organizational culture that fits their strengths and motivational factors. Instead of assessing the candidate focusing only on the things that are relevant from the employer’s point of view, we emphasize in our recruitments the fit between the candidate´s characteristics and the applied position. Good fit between the candidate and the position applied is reflected on employee well-being and productivity, contributing to the organization´s success.

We will make sure our recruitment process will reach the best candidates and leave a pleasant experience of our recruitment process and of your organization as an employer.
Recruitment, personnel assessment.


Our team coachings provide information about team’s different personality traits and their affect in work. The coaching also helps in increasing team members’ self-knowledge, utilizing team’s different strengths and developing teamwork. In our team coachings, we utilize popular and extensively studied Workplace Big Five personality inventory, as well as our background in occupational psychology.
