We support you in recruiting managers, specialists and professionals
Every company succeeds or fails based on the quality of its employees. Finding good staff in your home country is already difficult enough, and finding good people in a foreign country like Korea can be even more challenging. Not only do the language and education system of candidates and the corporate world differ significantly from Western understanding, but also Korean peculiarities such as social environment, foreign loyalties and values, gender, age and social status need to be considered in the decision-making process. We have many years of experience in the field of recruitment and placement of specialists and executives in Korea and we actively look for suitable candidates, taking into account your requirements and — most importantly — ensuring a high degree of discretion.
Our search is based on an exclusivity agreement. Your main advantage with this precisely targeted search is that you do not have to deal with a large number of unsuitable applications. Instead, we filter all matching candidates and only introduce you to those who fully meet your search criteria. All there is left to do for you is to make the final decision and select the candidate of your choice.
Korean job portals and the employment office are only helpful to a very limited extent for foreigners. Without extensive knowledge of the Korean language and with no real understanding of the Korean labour market, it can be quite challenging for non-Koreans to find qualified personnel by these methods. Already the personal approach itself can be difficult. Professionals and managers with good command of English are extremely difficult to acquire. Sometimes the HR search process can take many months and the most suitable and desirable candidates often work for leading Korean conglomerates. These prospects will have only limited interest in joining foreign SMEs without a significant brand name in the market.
With Nowak & Partner's discrete direct search, we overcome these hurdles by finding and presenting to you only those executives who are a perfect match for your business.
The company “Success Korea” was wondering why the Korean CEO of its subsidiary had only hired relatives and fellow students.
For the overseas parent company, such loyalty posed a certain risk and the company feared that the new employees would be more loyal to the CEO who hired them than the company itself. This led to concerns within the company, especially if problems were to arise with the CEO, which could lead to employee dissatisfaction and a loss of control over the Korean subsidiary.
In this regard, the Korean business leader correctly pointed out that this was a common thing in Korea and that he was able to motivate and control his employees better due to their personal attachment and relationship. Nowak & Partner further consulted Success Korea in this regard and the Korean CEO was introduced to the German way of managing situations like these. In addition, a new corporate structure was created in collaboration with the German management team, which was then introduced to the Korean CEO.
Nowak & Partner was also appointed to recruit new suitable team members and successfully integrated them into the existing business structure.
