About us

We are Manres

Our Philosophy

Our pioneering spirit, focus and expertise make us your trusted partner for transforming your business. With our strong background in psychology and economics, we ensure holistic company development. We support you in the areas of personality developmentleadership development and company culture.

Our work is based on a holistic view of people and focuses on a people-centric company culture. That's why our company's name, Manres, combines “man” (symbolizing humankind) with the Latin word “res” (meaning “thing” or “concern”). This reflects our mission of taking human concerns into account in the business world.

Our name is a powerful symbol for our philosophy: people are the key to any type of success, even in business.

We offer a unique approach, based on positive psychology, which integrates insights from business, philosophy and psychology into best practices. We know how to manage the inner workings of transformation processes and find the necessary steps for implementing successful change. Our team consists of around 20 holistically trained consultants, all of whom hold university degrees in human studies and/or business studies. With our holistic perspective, we offer tailor-made solutions for any situation.
