"The Maritz Institute's vision is to unleash human potential by inspiring and enabling people-centered business solutions. We believe that business practices, designed right, are vehicles for human potential to be realized. This doesn't happen by accident, it happens when there is a clear goal to unleash human potential with supporting business practices and programs to make it happen for every stakeholder the business touches—customers, channel partners and employees."

Our Mission

"The Maritz Institute has provided me with the cutting-edge scientific research on how best to understand, enable and motivate people. The design framework that we have developed as a result of this research has been described by more than one of my clients as, 'A game changer that clearly sets Maritz apart from others in your industry.'"

Our Education

"A client said, 'The Institute gives Maritz an air of academic investigation and openness to new ideas that most companies our size have forgotten.' Curiosity and openness are the difference between a business that makes money for a few and a business that makes better lives for all its stakeholders."
