Our mission

Our values

We value long-term relationships with our stakeholders and always act as equals.

We think and act entrepreneurial, are committed to add value and take responsibility for the results we deliver.

We tailor our approach to our client's needs, aligning them with our quality standards.

We love what we do and go the extra mile.

We understand leadership as guidance and support to inspire our clients and ourselves in proceeding to excellence.

We strongly believe in business ethics as a high value and integral part of our corporate identity.


As consultants, we contribute to your sustainable success with our three key services.

We look for and find the best minds for you, maybe use more approaches than others, do more research and pay attention to the culture of your company. Up to three years later we check your satisfaction with the managers or experts recommended by us and provide “advice and assistance”. If necessary, we also recommend a coach for further development. Your long-term success is our goal.

Each P&P training is reinforced by a follow-up or transfer concept and thus ensures the implementation of newly acquired knowledge, skills or abilities to a high degree. Our credo: master the future successfully!

We want to know what is bothering you and we offer our method and content know-how to find solutions. Through benchmarking, this scientifically sound concept of success ensures that you can be on par with the success parameters of successful companies – and maybe even acquire a certification in silver, gold or platinum status!

Ethics & Data Protection

Our Responsibility...

  • We inform clients of any potential conflicts of interest before we commit to an assignment.
  • We only commit to assignments if the clients’ requirements are clearly understood and well defined.
  • We guarantee complete confidentiality of our clients’ information, plans and intellectual property.
  • We are independent consultants and act objectively. We recommend only the most suitable candidates.
  • We reccomend only suitable candidates who have been interviewed and assessed carefully, and who are judged to meet the requirements of the position and the candidate profile.
  • We will not approach candidates we have already placed, or employees of an organisation with which we have a business relationship.

  • We treat our candidates with respect and courtesy.
  • We guarantee our candidates prompt and detailed communication.
  • We do not accept any payment or benefits-in-kind from our candidates for our services.
  • We act neutrally and guarantee that all potential analyses and assessments are evaluated by experts.
  • We only forward confidential information to the client with the consent of the candidate.
  • We only obtain references after consultation with the candidates.

Data Protection

Name, contact details, education, professional experience and the salary information you provided. The legal basis is you actively sending your documents and, if applicable, an application letter. We see this as a clear interest in the position.

We generally file your data for a maximum of 12 months after you have actively applied. Within this period you will receive an email from us, in which we invite you to continue storing your data with us and to confirm this with a link. If you do not do this, your data will be deleted 12 months after we have received it.

If you consent to further storage, we will contact you at regular intervals at the email address specified in the application and ask for an extension of your consent or any updates to your CV. If you do not actively agree to an extension, your documents will automatically be removed from our system. We understand an update of your documents as active consent in the sense of a conclusive action.

We only use your data to evaluate your qualification for the position for which you have actively applied. In the course of this application process, your data will also be passed on to our client using a secure communication platform.
If you have agreed for your documents to be saved, we will also compare your qualification profile with new vacancies and contact you if we think the new position could be of interest to you.

Please contact us from the email address given in your application; this is how we determine your identity and the legality of the request for deletion.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have personally during business hours.
