History - how it all began
International top management is the most important and interesting sector in the field of human resources. Contentwise anyway but also economically: demand as well as the number of interesting candidates are both growing constantly. Hardly any globally ambitous company will be able to do without international executives in five or ten years’ time.
It was this conviction that led us to form our company in 2009. Two years later we got awarded with the “Innovation prize of German Industry” for our concept of a bicultural executive pool.
In a globalised economy international management teams are superior to those who confine themselves to having a purely national leadership. As soon as a company has set up a substantial part of its workforce abroad and established a considerable number of customers there, this diverse management team becomes a clear competitive advantage.
On the other hand the character and also the success of a company are directly connected to its roots, origin and culture. Therefore international management appointments are a special challenge irresespective of the individual quality of the candidate.
Here we come in and here lies our expertise and experience and also the reason for our success. We believe in the special value contribution of bicultural executives and specialists. Nearly all international top managers who are successful in German companies are familiar with German culture as well as their own. Biculturality becomes especially charming when it comes to Chinese top managers and specialists. This is why we placed our main focus here right from the beginning.
Many success stories of German companies active in China are linked to Chinese executives who have studied or worked in Germany for quite a long time before returning to their home country.
An ever increasing number of Chinese students has been coming to Germany to study and work since the end of the nineties. Consequently not only the number of strong candidates has risen but also the group of high-powered candidates with an interesting professional experience has grown accordingly some years later. Within this group of bicultural specialists and executives we concentrate on the top five per cent. Occasionally we also deal with German candidates who have been involved with Chinese culture so intensively that they also can be described as bicultural.
