Based on extensive experience, we’ve developed several solutions to meet the assessment needs of clients in the areas of testing, 360 degree feedback, employee surveys, and skill simulation assessment. We assist clients in administering, scoring, and reporting assessments.

Human Capital Consulting

Leverage provides all the professional hands-on support necessary for businesses to enter the market for the first time, execute change management initiatives, implement rules of employment, structure compensation and benefits, negotiate with Japanese labor unions, and downsize.



Our leadership team has been operating together in Tokyo since 2006.

Number of Staff

Currently we have less than 20 team members actively working on projects in Tokyo and Asia. We are part of a global network with more than 2000 consultants in over 40 offices. Our team in Tokyo was educated mainly in Japan and the US. Half of our team members hold advanced degrees (MBAs, Master’s in Engineering and PhD in Science).

Firm Structure

We are privately-held and our equity partners are actively managing the firm. By not having to announce our quarterly results to shareholders or investors not actively involved in the day-to-day management our of firm, we can put our clients’ interest before our personal profits. We value long-term relationships with both our clients and candidates.
