HumRRO emerged from the pandemic in 2021 stronger and more agile than ever. It is fitting that the year also marked HumRRO’s 70th anniversary. Our longevity is a testament to our ability to adapt to changing times, overcome cyclical market and economic challenges, and thrive through innovative solutions that make us industry leaders and highly sought-after partners.
Our strategic growth has been sustained through referral and repeat business but also by acquiring new business. We are entrusted by our clients to help solve their most complex, pressing challenges in talent management, assessment, leadership and career development, credentialing services, and program evaluation, using the latest innovations in applied research and analytics.
Increasingly, those solutions involve cutting-edge techniques in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, such as natural language processing, automated item generation, among others. At HumRRO, we continue to pave the way for AI to enhance efficiency while maintaining the highest standards of validity.
HumRRO is the gold standard of excellence and innovation. HumRRO has been a pleasure to work with and their services are phenomenal. Particularly, the process through which their items are developed demonstrates their attention to detail and inclusivity of people. I’ve enjoyed working with the HumRRO team!
