Michael Hermann is the CEO of Great Place To Work® Institute in Switzerland since 2012. He studied business administration in Germany. While working in a bank a colleague told him: “Most decisions in business are driven by psychology”.

Out of curiosity for the human behavior in work life, he studied psychology specializing in industrial and organizational psychology at the university of Innsbruck in Austria.

Subsequently, he worked for an international HR-consulting company in the field of “Talent and Organizational Consulting” for several years. He was responsible for employee surveys and employee engagement in Central Europe. He managed the team and international projects on talent management, employer branding, communication and leadership development. He lives in Zurich since 2008, and since 2009, he has been giving lectures at the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz in applied psychology.

In his spare time he likes to go cycling in the mountains or windsurfing on the lakes.
