Get to Know Us
Every story has a beginning and Kognivate is no different. Many years ago, Jared (see below) was a blue collar nightshift worker on a production line. As most people do, he viewed himself as capable and conscientious. Yet, one night his hand got caught in moving machinery. Luckily there was no lasting damage, but that experience drove an insatiable desire to know why good people, trying to do a good job, end up in situations where jobs go very wrong. Kognivate's Human Factors Reimagined approach is the culmination of two decades of experience and learning.To find out more about us keep on reading.
