Eulab Consulting operates in Knowledge Management, offering services within the entire knowledge cycle through four areas of intervention: Training, Research, Consulting and Technologies. Eulab’s Knowledge Area is experienced in supporting customers in the knowledge production process, aimed both to self-growth (individual and group coaching activities) and business growth (social and market research).

Eulab Consulting is leader in Italy in social research, studies and marketing surveys (Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty, Brand Positioning and Benchmarking). Our staff uses an integrated approach between quantitative methods (CATI, CAPI and CAWI interviews) and qualitative ones (narrative interviews, focus groups, participatory observation).

Eulab’s Knowledge area helps companies to grow by offering specialized on-demand consulting services (HR management, communication and marketing), also through temporary management. Eulab specializes in individual coaching (top and middle management) and group coaching (to support the achievement of the objectives of the production team or the sales team).
