The story of HaRp

Guided by the desire to put clients first, the history of Harp & Partners dates back to 2002, when its two founders, having acquired significant HR experience in both international and domestic markets, wished to establish their own company in order to provide a wide range of HR services in the fields of headhunting and education & training.

The scope of our activity has expanded continuously according to the needs of our customers and the market’s demand, with new features such as intercultural training, intercultural and personalized coaching, which arise from increasingly globalised business life. These trainings support the development of intercultural competence at relevant companies. Besides the outplacement programmes, we introduced the Assessment Centers in the area of selection.

 

Since our company’s establishment, we have tried to provide high level services to our customers, who are operating in many industries: financial, service or industrial, and manufacturing sectors. Our goal is to establish long-term, personal and trust-based relationships.

How we view our consultancy

When the company was founded in 2002, our team thought deeply about finding the perfect name. The name HaRp was supported by all of us as a word that means the same in French and in English and symbolizes common thinking, teamwork and cooperation.

 

HaRp will continue this spirit in its work with all of its customers.
