what we do?

Executive Search

Direct search for suitable candidates for top management, middle management and special positions.

We use our network of contacts from our previous extensive corporate and consulting experience to conduct detailed market research and identify potential candidates.

We only ever work on assignments with senior experienced consultants.

HR Business Partnering

We do not seek to be interim managers, but if needed we can navigate the internal HR department, e.g., during the long-term absence of a HR manager, or provide systematic support for an HR specialist who has been newly promoted to the role of HR manager. 

We can handle any demanding tasks regarding Labour Relations in instances when the internal HR department lacks the necessary capacity or sufficient experience or skills.

I’ve known František for many years in his position as an external client. Based on my many years of experience as a leader at a consultancy company performing HR projects, I have a very good idea regarding the functioning of HR in manufacturing companies. František is the ideal choice for all companies looking not only for an experienced manager (perfect knowledge of performing managerial duties, consequently following the set strategy) and expert (comprehensive knowledge of HR processes at large corporations) but a true leader as well. His unrivalled ‘competitive advantage’ is his personality. A decent, trustworthy and reliable person with integrity. František’s sport activities are reflected in his working attitude – a sense of fair play, the strive to win, healthy self-esteem and persistence. The combination of the willingness to set ambitious goals and a high internal motivation to achieve those goals make him a very successful manager/leader.

And on a personal note: I greatly appreciate František’s decency, his ability to see things from a broader perspective and his great sense of humour.

Frantisek was working in my management team for many years both at the local Czech level as well as at the Central European level. He has proven to be a true HR professional. He is not only able to draft and implement HR strategies, but also to shape and manage the systems and structures, and if need be, solve very specific local issues. He is very good at communicating with people at all levels of hierarchy and in different countries. As a colleague, he is loyal, open and reliable. I can recommend Frantisek for any HR related job in both national and international companies; I think he should even consider broadening his scope outside of HR.

Frantisek is a true HR professional as well as a great person to work with. Starting from different systems and process implementation to communication, cooperation and complex HR issue resolution - Frantisek always listens to others, makes the best decision for all parties and does it at the highest professional standards. There is no question or topic in HR that Frantisek cannot help with. He is always very approachable, empathic, reasonable and has great "bird’s eye" view on most topics in the HR field. He implemented a great deal of new processes and procedures that are helping the company to be more transparent, efficient and easy to handle. Frantisek is very much oriented to people as well as business needs.

I have had the pleasure of working with Frantisek for more than 5 years as part of the People & Communications management team at NKT. He is an experienced HR leader with a drive to get results guided by his strong values and empathy. He is a strong collaborator and always willing to go the extra mile to support his colleagues.
Frantisek demonstrated an ability to plan and execute complex project effectively – a good example of this was the implementation of a new HR IT system that was implemented with very high-quality processes. I would warmly recommend Frantisek as a colleague, and I believe he will be an asset to any company.

I appreciate the openness and professional approach of František. I see him as a very capable manager. He can promote innovative ideas, find and allocate the right resources even in areas beyond his expertise. Thanks to more than 4 years of working together with openness and respect, we achieved our goals. František can motivate his colleagues to accept challenges and new tasks.

Frantisek is the most supportive manager I have ever had. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work under Frantisek’s leadership for almost 4 years.
I highly appreciate Frantisek’s honest and open communication which creates a safe working environment where you are not afraid to share own opinions. He is always open to discuss ideas and suggestions.
Frantisek is the person to go to when you need help to make a decision. Thanks to his outstanding knowledge of the company structure, processes and market, personalities of other managers and colleagues, as well as his high level of empathy and experience, he is always able to evaluate information to make the best decision.
Having Frantisek as a manager, I felt appreciated at work and I knew that he valued my skills and dedication. He is an inspirational leader, and each employee can benefit from being led by him.
