While we offer a full range of HR services, mostly oriented towards human capital, at Haute Culture, we believe that recruitment goes way beyond the so-called ‘cultural fit’. Our expertise has shown us that there is no certainty that people sharing interests and values in the first place will experience the exact same feelings and emotions under pressure. Change is though, and the stress experienced in the first 6 months of a new career path, involving new values and beliefs, can lead to a complete failure…

This is where ICQ brings new solutions, allowing us, human being, to look at a complex and uncomfortable situation from a different perspective, objectively and emotionally-controlled. We already know it, soft skills are as important as hard skills.

That is the reason why we were early adopters of the ‘culture add’ school of thoughts, which consist of mapping our clients’ cultural diversity index to feed their teams with cognitive-prepared professionals. The candidates we provide our clients with are finely evaluated and trained according to our certified standards and are able to leverage the complex cultural diversity layer within the company that matters most, the cognitive one!

“90% of strategy is execution, and 90% of execution is interaction”

With over 150 CEOs from fortune 500 companies pointing out that 8 out of 9 skills and mindsets of efficient leadership are directly linked to cultural intelligence (CQ), there are no more spaces for CQ deficiency.
