 About LHH

The world of work is changing fast.

Profound changes at profound speed.


But whereas many see change as an existential threat,

a select few see it as an opportunity to make a difference.

An opportunity to deliver lifelong employability to a generation of talent in transition.

An opportunity to develop leaders, recognizing the capabilities needed for today,

while nurturing the expertise needed for the future.

And an opportunity to look beyond what’s right for a company, to what’s right for society as a whole.


And out of the few that see these opportunities, there are even fewer placed to actually deliver them.

At Lee Hecht Harrison, we have the scale, the expertise and the insight, not only to identify these opportunities, but to realize them.


Transforming workforces though career transition, talent development and strategic advisory.

Developing future skills, flexibility and foresight, delivered with a distinctly human heart.


We’re obsessively passionate, and quantifiably effective.

Making a difference to everyone we work with and for. And delivering it on a global scale.


Because opportunities aren’t there to be observed.

They’re there to be taken.


This is LHH.

This is Opportunity, delivered.
