Who we are

TALENT-net is a personnel consultancy with offices in Cologne and Bern (CH). 

Our team is characterized by an exciting mix of professional expertise – from economics and physics to psychology. With many years of management experience in leading international companies, especially in purchasing, supply chain and HR. 

We are all united by the passion and ambition to successfully complete each project and receive a convinced “thumbs up” at the end for our cooperation and commitment.

We attach great importance to respectful, open interaction with all our candidates, customers and cooperation partners – whether large or small, light or dark, young or old. Our network is our greatest asset – we cultivate it with time, appreciation and transparency.

"Science based – Practice driven"

Scientific research is an important source for innovation and for analyzing the impact of disruptive global changes on society and the economy. TALENT-net therefore actively initiates research projects and master theses with leading universities in the field of purchasing, supply chain and HR.  

In the “Purchasing of the Future” think tank founded with the University of St. Gallen, for example, we work together with well-known companies to develop solutions for current, cross-industry issues. See more about this in our joint video with the HSG. 

Knowledge - Innovation - Networks

Expertise in all scientific disciplines is growing rapidly. Innovation today requires the collaboration of numerous specialists. For example, our research project with the Rheinische Fachhochschule in Cologne on the subject of competence management involved more than 200 experts from a wide range of industries.

Bringing people and companies together to share experiences and propagate new ideas is part of our business philosophy. We are convinced “networkers” and ourselves work closely with network partners who match us in terms of professionalism and customer orientation.
