As German owned and managed workforce solution provider we are trusted partner to navigate in the difficult Ukrainian business environment.
We are ethical, open, honest and authentic. Customers and candidates trust us to do the right things.
We are going the long way to make sure that all our business operations are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations. We cooperate actively with Ukrainian authorities and do not chose short-cuts.
We love challenges. Where others see problems and declare solutions as impossible we are getting excited and deliver solutions.
We use creativity and an innovative mindset to thrive in our markets for the interest of our clients and candidates.
The labor market and related services are still under development in Ukraine.
Many agencies are still charging candidates placement fees and sending candidates for work abroad without proper work permit and visas.
Candidates are often shopping for higher salaries disregarding the longer term career impacts of job hopping.
We see our role to show to candidates and clients how ethical professional human resources services should look like. We hope that our competition will have to follow our example to stay competitive.
The Orange Revolution in Ukraine 2004/2005 and the following reforms motivated many foreign investors to enter Ukrainian.
Foreign Investments in Ukraine 2004-2020
Foreign companies experienced many difficulties in entering the Ukrainian market. Finding the right staff with the right international mindset proved to be a challenge. Many companies also wanted initially only a small representation without a full commitment to set up their own legal entity in Ukraine and were in need staffing and support solutions.
