About Us

Cykometrix is a SaaS based Assessment Company specializing in team optimizations. Leveraging correlations and data from hundreds of psychological research papers, we deliver dynamic, interactive reports illustrating the team strengths and weaknesses.

Our automated online service provides teams and management benchmarks and suggested training to cost-effectively promote team resilience, efficiency, and productivity.

Teams can leverage our service to quantify improvements in existing team dynamics using our native Pulse baselining methodologies, the optimal personal characteristics of new employees, and even suggest how to reorganize existing teams for maximum effectiveness.

Our Story

During the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, four experienced entrepreneurs, Sylvain Rochon, James Mackenzie, Ross Norrie and GJ Hagenaars, saw there was an urgent market need to measure team effectiveness.

The founders, having years of experience in psychology, business, and technology, knew the most important aspect of any successful company is its people and how they interact with each other to reach objectives.

Team effectiveness was something no existing online service could quantify, so they combined their collective strengths as a team to build a service that did exactly that.

The realities of the pandemic and the market shift to at-home online work means companies who want to excel must find decentralized services to improve their teams. Cykometrix is the solution every HR department has been looking for.

Right after service launch, the company drew the attention of major national human resource companies, angel investor groups, and training companies from multiple continents. Cykometrix staff are working hard to give those companies valuable consistent insights on their team’s productivity, their potential, and what training would be most valuable to get even better results.
