Let's get talking!

Dr Armin Betz

As one of the first German personnel consultants on the market, he has developed numerous Germany-wide brands over the past decades that operate successfully on the market. The founder and managing director of Personal Total GmbH, and the umbrella brand HR Consult Group AG that evolved from it, is considered one of the great constants in the German HR consulting environment. From the very beginning, he has fostered the community of HR consultants and is one of our leading mentors.

Ralf Prechtl

Previously a member of the supervisory board, Ralf Prechtl finally joined HR Consult Group AG as a member of the board of directors. He was therefore already very familiar with the processes, the framework conditions and the people involved. At the same time, his focus is on building networks and cooperation models as well as the continuous development of systems and processes in HR consulting.

What does HR Consult Group AG do?

Our team offers you the platform for a successful business. Whether it's central purchasing or support from specialists in sales, research or contracts. Experienced personnel consultants are at your side.

Does Corona have an impact on the business as a recruitment consultant?

Yes, absolutely. The crisis shows the weaknesses in our clients' business model and the resulting need for personnel. This must be covered. However, turbulent times also show how important it is to keep reinventing oneself - otherwise one's own business model is not sustainable either.

What does HR Consult Group AG expect?

These are the qualities we are looking for: First and foremost is sales - that is your great passion. You also have a strong network, a sound understanding of your chosen competence centre, leadership potential and the ambition to start your own business.

Does a highly specialised personnel consultancy - as a people business - still have a chance in the digital future?

As long as there are people, there will also be "people business". The digital future will be shaped by suitable employees. These have to be found. Understanding the DNA of the company and the industry helps to find the right employees.
