Do you look forward to going to work? Do you love your work and your colleagues? OR

Could you - and your team - be enjoying work a lot more than you do right now?

You spend too long working to be miserable doing it! We can help you get out of the misery and back to the joy you deserve.

We believe people who can find joy in their work will have higher job satisfaction and will make a bigger contribution to a better world. 

Since 2006, we've been helping employers to find more joy at work through selecting and engaging the right staff who with the best leadership will create the culture and deliver the results they need. With Harrison Assessments, we also help consultants and coaches who are ready to grow.

Contact us today to discover how you can find your joy at work!

Some of the ways we make life easier for you:

  1. Predictive, flexible and benchmarked online assessments.
  2. Pick winners and keep them engaged.
  3. Intentionally building culture.
  4. Real leadership development for real people and real teams. We listen. 
  5. Connections. If we can't help you, we know who can!


For us, joy sits at the centre of everything we do. When you get to know us, you'll understand this. Curious? We'd love to hear from you.

" We used the Harrison Assessment tools followed by a debrief with Susan, for career development with staff, which then allowed us to work with Susan to create a customised 360 degree review process. Susan has a wealth of knowledge and is able to offer suggestions and solutions for our company. She is always ready to get involved and takes the time to show her clients the capability of Harrison Assessments. "
