In your opinion, how do you think employees can be motivated in this way?
Jan Griesbach: Nowadays, there are very few employees who just want to ´do their job`, to put it in the vernacular. Money is important but it´s not everything. Employees want to know: Why? What is the purpose behind everything? How can I contribute towards it? As a manager, you have to satisfy this expectation and, as already mentioned, actively involve your employees and let them help you pave the way to your goals.
With this in mind, back to your ´mission`: How does is manifest itself in your daily work?
Jan Griesbach: First and foremost, we put the same demands on ourselves as we put on our partners. Consequently we live a culture of appreciation, inclusion, commitment and transparency, and place great value on feedback.
Sebastian Reckers: From an external perspective, it all starts with the fact that we only fill positions that are at the management level. This is our specialization and we do not deviate from it. Furthermore, it is important to us that our partners and clients value competent and high-quality leadership and that we do not have to think in pigeonholes, but can place the best candidates – and often mistakenly, these are not always the most experienced candidates.
