General information

ARU was founded in 1991 and thanks to its extended international network, has achieved significant success in high level HR consultancy.

A pioneer in the introduction of cutting-edge services, ARU has introduced assessment center and coaching activities in Canton Ticino, Switzerland.

The agreement with a large US company has made it possible for ARU to be the first to develop outplacement services in Ticino.

ARU has developed the i.e.5 test to measure emotional intelligence.

Today ARU is also involved in the transfer of knowledge and methods to other HR professionals, offering training for HR Trainers and Human Resources Managers, as well as cultivating a close working relationship with universities, such as SUPSI and Università della Svizzera Italiana.

ARU is a small business unit with the qualities, transactional skills and the resources of larger competitors – thanks to its innovative and up-to-date know how and also to the contribution from a network of highly qualified consultants and recognised partners in Switzerland and abroad.

Aiming to reach high quality in all areas, ARU adopts advanced methods and instruments, paying particular attention to diagnostics, which have proven to be of significant relevance. At ARU we prefer a personalized and customized approach in each and every given situation and professional context, believing that every individual is unique and different.
