Meet the Swiss burnout and wellness experts

Persometrics is a Swiss healthcare firm offering physiological and psychometric profiling for individuals and businesses. We specialize in biomarker testing of hormones and DNA, offering optimised training and help fighting burnout and other stress-related illnesses. Identifying individuals prone to burnout and other stress-related illnesses or costly rehabilitation programs after the fact, companies too can save on reduced absenteeism, presenteeism and turnover rates

Our testing of hormones directly tied to athletic adaptation to exercise allows you to find the exercise routine and diet that is right for YOU, and NOT the one that is right for everyone else.

Our philosophy is science. We believe in empirical data and its appropriate analysis. Never losing sight of scope or meaningfulness of deliverables, we do not perform tests or analyses that have no scientific merit, and we only work with third-parties that share this philosophy.
