The Award for the Best of the Best:

Passion for People wins the “Client Experience” category

Headhunter 2017

Munich, 2 June 2017. An unforgettable summer evening, worthy award winners and lavish festivities above the Munich rooftops.

The premium career service, Experteer, has now accoladed the best HR consultancies in German-speaking markets for the second time by presenting the coveted Headhunter of the Year Awards at a festive gala event.

“It was a fabulous event in the Bayerischer Hof Hotel, which not only reflects the transformation of the industry but also helps to shape that transformation“, says Klaus Mantel, CEO of Experteer and initiator of the event. Paying tribute to superlative quality, rewarding innovation and encouraging pioneers – those were the guidelines for deciding who won the awards in the Executive Search, Client Experience, Candidate Experience and Best Newcomer categories.

This year the programme of events accompanying the awards ceremony was extended in all of two ways. In addition to the convivial “HR Consultants Brunch”, it was above all the high-calibre “Leaders Lounge” that brought HR consultants together with business leaders for a committed, inspirational exchange of views and ideas. Digitalisation, artificial intelligence, transparency, market trends, the steadily increasing emancipation of candidates – these were exactly the topics of importance for the future that were discussed at this new industry event. “We want to make the “Headhunter of the Year” a pioneering communication and networking platform in the HR consultancy industry”, says Christian Göttsch, founder and CEO of Experteer.
