We understand that successful companies attract and retain the best not by just offering highly competitive salaries but by constantly striving to make the work environment somewhere employees want to be.

Human Capital covers a multitude of areas, but in particular:



Evaluation is carried out by our experts and enables companies to objectively assess their employees’ skills and motivations. By evaluating your managers and senior executives, we help you make the right decisions. For these services, we rely on efficient and diversified tools, which complete our approach in face-to-face interviews (e.g.: personality questionnaires, aptitude tests, 360-degree feedback…). We are thus able to support you on different fields such as internal mobility, final phase of recruitment, management to identify high performers, and individual performance improvement.

The Assessment Center method consists of confronting participants with fictional situations, representative of those encountered in a specific position. It is about highlighting the behaviours someone adopts when facing reference situations. Each one can know more objectively their strengths and weaknesses, regarding their ability to organise or communicate, their reactivity…



Coaching is a personalised support process which aims at developping individual and collective performances to the advantage of their company.

It is focused on managers’ daily issues in the broad sense and assists them in realising their professional objectives. It helps them place themselves within the exercise of authority, handle communication and information problems as well as conflicts among people. More than a mere management and development tool, it is a way to give meaning to management while respecting oneself and others. It encourages interpersonal skills rather than appearances and integrates technical skills into interpersonal ones.



As part of its interventions, TAPLOW CONSULTING FRANCE first focuses its attention on the project and the company’s values. A diagnosis carried out in situ enables us to build and deliver tailored and innovative modules focused on development of each one’s professionalism.

Our measures mix collective sessions with an optional personalised support, in order to reinforce the action efficiency through individual awareness and training appropriation
