We are very pleased that we have already been voted “Headhunter of the Year” twice in the supreme discipline of “Executive Search”. This coveted award recognizes Germany’s best personnel consulting companies in four different categories for outstanding performance. While in 2017 we convinced people with our sustainability concept and the Selaestus forest project, in 2019 our culture-based recruiting found the special appreciation of the Munich jury. Thanks to all our clients and candidates – without you we would never have come this far!

This is what convinced the jury in 2017.

  • Selaestus has established itself as an excellent executive search consultancy for industrial SMEs and public companies.
  • Selaestus has recognized future trends and accordingly aligned its own projects and corporate strategy.
  • Selaestus sets standards for sustainability and talent development, is established in diversity and knowledge management.
  • For each successfully placed candidate, Selaestus plants a tree – a strong symbol for sustainability also in HR consulting.

This was particularly well received in 2019.

  • Selaestus works with 360-degree profiling, which stands out particularly in an industry comparison.
  • Selaestus focuses on individuality and makes potentials visible.
  • With this concept, Selaestus ensures “cultural fit” and diversity in management profiles.

FOCUS-MAGAZIN: We are among the Top Executive Search Companies 2020.

Once a year, the FOCUS-BUSINESS magazine, in cooperation with the market research institute Statista, publishes a list of the top executive search companies in Germany, based on surveys of HR managers in companies as well as candidates and external HR service providers. We are pleased to be included in the “Executive Search” category in 2020.

The decisive factors for the candidates were the quality and selection of the vacancies offered, communication during and after the placement, and the quality of service throughout the application process. HR professionals indicated that the quality and selection of candidate profiles, quality of service, speed of placement, and value for money were the most important factors for them.

This ranking is a great honor for us and encourages us to consistently continue on our path of sustainable personnel consulting.

The Selaestus Team

The principles we follow when filling management positions apply to our team as well: We complement each other in professional and human terms and are bound together by a common set of values as well as by our enjoyment of our work. Equality and the development of potentials are part of our everyday life! In short: As a living ecosystem, we grow with our tasks.

„Managers can be success drivers for every company – if they are enthusiastic about their job, motivate themselves and others, and act authentically and sustainably. Therefore, in a personal interview we carefully clarify: Who am I? What do I want? How do I efficiently achieve my goals?“

Dr. Regina Ruppert

Managing Director, Founder, Entrepreneur

„The quality of a good HR consultancy can be seen, for example, in the discreet and well-prepared way in which it contacts board members and supervisory board members at eye level.“

Dr. Bernd Ruppert

CFO, Co-Partner, Business Angel

„What sets us apart is openness to the concerns of the contact persons and a friendly, appreciative approach to all interlocutors.“

Linda Kukuk

Executive Assistant

„Right from the first contact, tact is just as important as a realistic assessment of change motivation and individual strengths.“

Alexander Baxmann

Senior Recruitment Consultant

„When searching for the executives who are the best fit, we draw on a variety of sources – for example, an extensive database, the good recommendations from our networks, and our expertise from social media channels and the large number of previous search projects.“

We are active in regional and national networks, associations and professional organizations.

Dr. Regina Ruppert actively implements these topics as a long-standing member of the BDU (Bundesverband Deutscher Unternehmens- und Personalberater e.V.), as a long-standing member of the BFB (Bundesverband der Freien Berufe e.V.) or as a representative of employers at large social insurance carriers.

Selaestus also promotes young academics through lectures and courses and by regularly sponsoring German scholarships.

Whether in the context of various mandates in supervisory bodies, in networks such as “Woman in Mobility” or as the initiator of a foundation for new advisory boards: Dr. Regina Ruppert is particularly committed to promoting women in management positions.

Keeping up to date and dealing constructively with leadership-related topics is a matter of course for our team: That’s why, for example, we regularly take part in panel discussions and conferences such as Startup Night and love to share insights, views and new developments in our blog posts.
