The merger of Stimulus and Psya gives birth to the European leader in psychological health at work.

Paris, Wednesday 29 April 2020


The Human & Work Group announces the acquisition of Psya, the pioneer in psychological and social support.

This operation, which has been planned for a long time, brings together Stimulus and Psya, the two historical reference players in the field of psychological health in the workplace. Stimulus thus becomes the European leader in its market, with a N°1 position in France, Italy and Spain.

Under the leadership of David Mahé, Chairman and Emmanuel Charlot, Chief Executive Officer, more than 200 consultants committed to well-being and efficiency in the workplace, offer 1,000 European companies and their 8 million employees, both locally and internationally, unparalleled high-level expertise to assess and prevent psychosocial risks, support women and men in transformations, manage crises, develop emotional skills and deploy employee assistance programs.

The current health crisis further places psychological health at work among the main challenges for companies. In these uncertain times, executives, HR directors and managers are aware that the attention paid to their teams is the key factor in the survival and performance of companies. For several weeks now, massive teleworking, mental health and the maintenance of motivation have been concerns on which the success of the recovery and, more broadly, the cohesion of our society depend.

Armed with these new skills, Stimulus responds to the considerable challenges facing companies - their health, legal and media security, their capacity for transformation, productivity and development, their social responsibility and their social impact. In short, to make the most of the best of themselves: their human capital.
