Boundless
HR knowledge

Our mission: HR knowledge without bounds

HR Cosmos wants to democratize Swiss HR knowledge. In fact, we believe that HR knowledge belongs to everyone: It should always be absolutely up-to-date and available when you need it. And you should share it if you have it. Because only shared knowledge can grow.
The HR Cosmos founders team

From the good idea to the finished product

The idea for HR Cosmos was born in the summer of 2017: We realized that many HR managers deal with exactly the same questions day in, day out, and work painstakingly to find their answers. ‘It has to be easier!’ we thought, and we found the ideal partners in HR Campus and Starmind. Both companies put people at the centre of their activities and see knowledge as a public good. Just like us from HR Cosmos.

We believe that expertise becomes even more useful when you share it – with your own work colleagues or with professionals from companies of all sizes and sectors. With the HR Cosmos Q&A platform, knowledge will be available when you need it, thanks to real answers and Starmind technology. This technology uses artificial intelligence to make everyday work easier for HR managers and links questions from the community with helpful answers at lightning speed. In doing so, the technology learns from its users and so gets smarter every day.

HR Cosmos puts the community in the foreground, because we are firmly convinced that we will go further together than we would alone. This is precisely why the platform is also publicly accessible, living and learning from the questions and answers of its users.

‘When I first heard about the idea, it fired me up immediately. You ask a question and a moment later you get a competent answer. That’s brilliant!’ says Cindy Berger, HR Consultant at HR Campus. Without any hesitation, she took on the management of the project and, together with her team, took just under three months to turn the idea into HR Cosmos – a Q&A platform that uses artificial intelligence to make the daily work of HR managers easier.”
