The Veridian Group is a consultancy in Berkeley, California that specializes in human factors research and its application to real world concerns. The term "human factors" is also known as engineering psychology, human engineering, or ergonomics. Although there are minor differences between them, for our purposes these terms are interchangeable. Our focus is on the performance and behavior of people, at work or at leisure.
