c²x – contagi Customer & Candidate Experience

Customer

We advise and support our clients during the process of systematic identification and qualitative selection of specialists and executives. Using our proven quality management process and innovative digital solutions, we work to fill key positions in our clients’ organisations with high-quality candidates – as quickly as possible and with a fair, client-oriented pricing model. Not only do we understand the challenges for business leaders, we also speak their language and place value on familiarising ourselves with the respective business models or product worlds. For this reason, we place great value on maintaining a partnership-based and continuous dialogue.

Candidate

For us, “Candidate Experience” is just as important as “Customer Experience”: approaching candidates in a goal-oriented, well-prepared and well-researched way provides the basis for a trusting and candidate-oriented exchange throughout the entire application or even onboarding / initial training process. Candidates do not want standardised presentations of job profiles, they want an honest and, above all, well-founded exchange on the matter. To ensure such an exchange, our relationship with our clients (and candidates) must be characterised by a close, confidential consultation process and open communication. Only then can we deliver good impressions in highly competitive labour markets.

Our executive search process

Acquisition

During the acquisition phase of a mandate, we lay the foundations for the quality of the working relationship with the client. For us, it is not just about mapping out role requirements: for contagi project managers, an understanding of the client’s business model and the environment in which the candidate is to succeed, is crucial.
