„If a company cannot show that it creates value for the common good, it quite simply won‘t survive. Purpose gives your company permission to exist and the means to perform better. At human unlimited, this is what we do.“
Frank Dopheide, Founder

We are human.

Entrepreneurial success starts with a realisation: you can't do business without people. When you find yourself losing employees, customers, relevance or goodwill, that's where we come in.

Purpose has the power to drive sustainable growth. When organisations regain faith in what they do every day, they rise above themselves. Nothing has greater impact. Just ask BlackRock or Harvard. And because your purpose is our purpose, this is all we do.

human unlimited is a CI agency – charged with creative intelligence. And the creative answer to strategy consultancies and Excel charts. We bring meaning and energy into companies. In one hundred days. Family-owned companies and medium-sized companies seem to be our strength.

If any of this sounds familiar, we should be talking to each other:

  1. Employee shortage or dissatisfaction
  2. Extreme organisational burnout
  3. Outdated business models
  4. Pronounced silo thinking
  5. Need for cultural change
  6. Lack of innovation
  7. Lack of confidence in leadership
  8. M&A - bringing different cultures together
  9. New strategy
  10. New CEO

This is the number: +49 211 5426550.

We unleash the human forces to create better companies for the greater good.

Purpose

Find your reason for being.
And grow beyond yourself.
+42%
Purpose driven organisations demonstrate better financial results – by as much as 42%. (Global Leadership Forecast 2018 Ernst & Young)
Fill a person with a sense of purpose, they will give you their commitment. Fill them with pride in their work and they will grow perceptibly. Along with your business.

Engagement

Even the best reasons
need a great spirit.
63%
Employee commitment is 63% higher in companies that have a purpose. (Kienbaum Study, 2020)
We humans are storytelling animals – our limbic system is wired to respond emotionally to these stories. That’s why purpose must go beyond rational arguments – and create an emotional echo. That’s how you set a company in motion. First the people follow you – then the results.

Transformation

Turn the world upside down.
And stay tall.
54%
54% of executives expect that new businesses will generate more than one-half of their revenue three years from now. (Accenture, 2017)
What comes after the era of optimisation? Every business, every company has been overwhelmed by a massive wave of change. Technology, processes, management and culture - everything is in motion. Purpose helps you to stay on course. The smallest screws can have the greatest leverage.

Why we believe in humans

We humans are the only species that can defy the laws of nature. When we know the reason why, we can rise above ourselves. Purpose is our reason why.
