We put people intelligence at the heart of your business strategy

We believe that every company has the potential to recruit and retain the most talented people. Cogito exists to empower our customers to take greater ownership of people strategies which are aligned to business goals, retain the best and increase their return on investment.

Our extensive people leadership experience is combined with research and data analytical tools enabling organisations to:

  • increase candidate quality
  • reduce recruitment costs
  • reduce unwanted attrition
  • gain control of employer brand
  • develop a positive culture

We want to work with customers who want to make a real and long term change to their business through its people, businesses with a desire to create talent strategies which enhance the long term sustainability of the organisation.

We make this a reality by working as a partner with our customers; developing a deep understanding of their culture, capabilities, goals and vision and providing consultative advice underpinned by fact based intelligence which ensures that people strategies are directly linked to business success.
