THE TRÖGER & CIE APPROACH.
We are neither recruiters, nor recruiting consultants, nor headhunters. We are not interested in filling vacancies with the best applicants and closing the case. We get involved beforehand: tell us about your company structure, your resource allocation and your values. We analyze the requirements of the vacant position. Not until then do we begin our active search for personnel, using a number of effective employee search tools.
We are experts in assessing candidates. And yet, as human beings, our assessment is not seldom clouded. We use established and scientifically proven tools to make our opinions as objective as possible. It backs up our assessments and creates the foundation for asking further purposeful questions.
SEARCH FOR PERSONNEL
Your employees are not only key performers, they are an investment in your company. We hardly need to tell you that. It is therefore even more important that they fit into your structures, are deployed wisely and can identify with your corporate culture.
We find exactly those who fit.
Highly qualified specialists are currently employed in good positions in attractive companies. They are therefore not actively looking for a new job and are very difficult to reach through job ads. Nevertheless, they are willing to talk about new career opportunities – on an equal level, not as applicants.
OUR 4 WAYS FOR A SUCCESSFUL PERSONNEL SEARCH.

FIND YOUR NEW COLLEAGUES AT EXECUTIVE LEVEL WITH US.
The restructuring of the executive level has profound consequences for your company. Therefore, it is important to start your executive search with a thorough analysis and to use the right tools to identify, attract and develop executives. By means of extremely discreet direct approaches, we also reach those candidates who usually remain invisible to you. When searching for niche experts, we take a look into the future and also consider the specialists of tomorrow.
OUR EXECUTIVE SEARCH PROCESS:
FROM START TO FINISH.
One of our core competencies is listening. We want to hear all about your company structure and culture. Then we can talk about the requirements that the open position entails.
Nothing passes us by on the market. Competition? Does not sleep. Search radius? Defined. Target companies? On screen. Extensive research is the basis of our work. This is how we find potential candidates.
Cooperatively, we write the roadmap and decide which candidates we want to reach and how. Then we get started.
Our consultants always find the right words. The phone is the wand with which the magic happens: No sales gibberish, but communication at eye level. Paired with the right arguments, interest is quickly aroused.
We bring the best people to the table and find out more about their personality, experience and motivation in a professional interview. During the interview, we use established interview methodologies that have served us well in the past. But after the interview is before the interview: We review the interview and match the professional and personal suitability with the job profile.
This is where it gets exciting for you: We present the chosen ones to you. With all the key data, notes and assessments you need. Of course, we don't rely exclusively on our good knowledge of human nature: To guarantee an objective selection, we also use appropriate tools.
Of course you want to get to know your candidates. Facts and figures are of no use if the chemistry is not right. That's why we introduce you to the shortlisted candidates and take a back seat or a front seat - whichever you prefer.
The goal is near, but things get bumpy at the end: In contract negotiations, there may still be disagreements here and there, and the current employer often responds to a termination with an offer. In this phase we advise you intensively in order to bring your preferred candidate on board.
YOUR PERSONNEL CONSULTING IN FRANKFURT.
The common thread of our consulting is inspiration. We want to encourage you to trust in your own strengths and to harness your resources. We nudge you in the right direction, take you by the hand if necessary, but never prescribe a path that does not suit you. The principles of proper and qualified personnel consulting (GoPB) and the professional principles of the Federal Association of German Management Consultants (Bundesverband Deutscher Unternehmensberater, short: "BDU") are the basis of our own standards.

Overall personnel assessment
The period in between the termination and the hiring, the so-called phase 0, is often forgotten – and thus an opportunity for change is missed. Before you start a personnel search, ask yourself the following questions: Does the job profile still fit the vacant position and our corporate culture? Couldn't the position perhaps even be eliminated completely? Let's talk about it.
