The word "alacris" in Latin means ready, willing, keen or eager and is the root of the English word "alacrity" we know today.

We chose our company name purposely, knowing that companies need to be truly ready, prepared and have the right teams in place to meet their goals.  

Many companies put forth their best laid plans and still don't achieve the the business results they want.  "What happened?", the leaders wonder.  "We spent painstaking hours putting together our go-to-market strategy, sales targets, product development plans, cost savings strategies... we planned for the results we wanted, but somehow didn't achieve them."  

We help our clients leverage and optimize the last competitive advantage that companies have: their talent.  How leaders build their teams often means the difference between success and failure.  With objective, reliable behavioral data at the core of everything we do, we help leaders build high performing teams to serve their business strategy.


Simply put, our mission is to empower organizations and their team to perform at their best.
