→ KLAITON becomes Haufe Advisory

Creating an impact.

Targeted matching with the best consultants & coaches enables us to empower organisations and people to achieve sustainable results and unlock their full potential.
Our Vision
We enable organisations to access the best external support in an efficient yet personal way. At the same time, we create conditions for top coaches to work independently and have a strong partner at their side.

“We aim to be the best at what we do. Providing a high quality online platform for purchasing and processing business coaching, and being an attractive partner for the best business coaches.”

Our values
The things that are most important to us are part of our DNA:
  • We deliver quality.
    Behind everything we do is a desire for excellence. We use the most advanced methods, the best tools, and the most modern processes. We guarantee best practice quality.
  • We are honest.
    Our processes are transparent. Our communication is simple and easy to understand. We apologise whenever we make a mistake. You can count on our words.
  • We are gamechangers.
    We constantly look at things from a new perspective and consciously question traditions and
    procedures. We think along and are one step ahead. We are redefining the industry.
  • We are respectful.
    We treat each other and our partners in a friendly, respectful and fair manner, because that is the only way to create trust. Having fun together is an important part of our working lives.
  • We are fast & uncomplicated.
    We work fast and take complexity out of things. We are pragmatic and we always find away. Problems thrive us to think creatively and find solutions. Feedback is the basis for our growth.
Our history
How KLAITON became Haufe Advisory

In January 2015, we founded Haufe Advisory — originally named KLAITON — in Vienna. In September 2018, KLAITON became part of the Haufe Group and, as Haufe Advisory, put two products on the market: Haufe Consulting and Haufe Coaching. An innovative online platform for the placement of highly qualified consultants and coaches is at the heart of our company: we are convinced that digital and efficient ways to purchase business consulting & business coaching will lead the way into the future.
