Companies looking to expand within Western Europe or the European Union often suffer from a lack of
qualified and experienced specialists and managers.
In particular Germany – one of the most important economic nations in addition to China, Japan and the
USA – is virtually starved for talents, specialists
and leaders willing to take responsibility and looking for a challenge. Personalities who exhibit
qualification and strength at the same time therefore are,
unfortunately, very often few and far between – in particular if the job to be filled is located in an
In contrast to the USA, Great Britain or the Netherlands, in particular the corporate culture in
medium-sized enterprises in Germany is still very restrained where using personnel consulting services
is concerned. The "typically German" virtues are opposed to direct search through a headhunter. However,
increasing competitive pressure puts pressure on personnel recruiting at the same time.
When a vacancy cannot be filled from the conventional labour market, we can only advise to cooperate
with a headhunter / personnel consultant.
Remel Executive Search guarantees a reasonable path to finding the right candidate by discussing
the "dos and don'ts" of direct search in intense preliminary discussions – no matter if you are
looking for the candidate of your dreams in Germany, Western European countries or in the European Union
Since the iron curtain the “east block” countries (such as Poland, Czech Republik, Baltic States,
Romania, Hungary, Ukraine etc.) have developed in different ways. Some of them benefit of being members
in the European Union, and others struggling between “east and west”.
The Eastern European countries are therefore in a difficult situation – on the one hand torn between
“east and west”, on the other hand, the variety of different religions and confessions.
Furthermore, Eastern Europe encompasses many different cultures and languages, a diverse market for
recruitment. With different ethnic groups such as Balts or Slavs and with more than as 10 languages and
countless dialects, dealing with Eastern European cultures in an appropriate manner is the first step to
a successful executive search.
Remel Executive Search is your headhunter, who knows the differences on the Eastern European market and
is able to find the right potentials for your organisation.
Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Russia has developed into an established industrial and
agricultural country. Energy, mechanical engineering and metal processing, chemical sectors, and the
service industry are among the country’s strengths.
In order to find the most adequate technical and management competences for your organisation in Russia,
you need an on-site specialist who knows the intricate web of multi-nationality, multi mentality and
"dual political philosophy". An impartial recording and a sensitive consideration are paramount.
In a controversial Russia, between the soviet and the capitalist mentalities, it is not always easy to
gain the trust of other people. In order to win over and assess a candidate in Russia, it is hardly
enough to know the culture and history of Russia - it is of advantage having also lived in Russia.
As a specialist for Russia, Remel Executive Search scans this asymmetric market for potential candidates
With the growth of China and the resolution of the Soviet Union, the Central Asian countries
(Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan) are becoming increasingly lucrative
for business ventures. The continuous and remarkable growth of the GDP facilitate a reliable business
partnership with these countries.
Also due to the current political situation between western countries and Russia, more and more western
organisations starting to invest in Central Asia.
Especially Kazakhstan, the biggest country in Central Asia, became an economical force after the
resolution of the Soviet Union. Kazakhstan possesses a big deposit of uranium, iron ore, coal and oil.
Furthermore, Kazakhstan and other central Asian states are very open to international investors such as
China, Russia, Europe and USA.
However, within recruitment procedure in these countries the cultural and religious differences
shouldn’t be underestimated. At this point, the regional knowledge of recruitment professional is

The Middle East and its countries are indispensable for the success of world economy. Above all, the
gulf states and their oil and gas reserves are driving the economy of this region enormously.
At the same time, this is one of the most diversified and complex regions in the world. Different
religious and politic cultures converge, which may be confusing to the western observer. While
globalization has made differences in business cultures between the East and the West continually look
smaller, profound knowledge on the regional culture is still quite essential for successfull headhunting
and personnel consulting.

direct local search to find the best candidates for your company in the foreign region.

Despite the global economic crisis, the gross domestic product of the emerging nation India is growing
steadily and stable - a sign of international investors that India will continue to be an attractive
market for division of labour and globalisation in the future.
The import of "Human Resources“ from the Indian IT and textile industry is already established for
years. Contacts and exchanges can easily be established.
However, should you aim to assign leaders or professionals to a local company in India, contact and
mediation may be more difficult. Establishing communication for industries and positions beyond
established markets can quickly complicate your quest.
You will need a specialist to begin his quest where the "globalised communications network" is
incomplete: in the national labour market of India.
Moreover, it is advantageous to know the different mentalities of the multi-religious multi-ethnic state
in order to avoid potential misunderstandings.
To the European understanding, Indian work dynamics resemble chaos. Here, being familiar with the
"seeming chaos" is essential in order to keep one’s focus on the goal.

find potential candidates in a heterogeneous market.
With 1.4 billion inhabitants is the socialist People’s Republic of China the most populous country on
earth, and with around 14k billion US dollars of gross domestic product, it is the second largest
economy in the world.
This relatively young republic (founded in 1949) changed rapidly, particularly following the death of
Mao Zedong, when the country embarked on a journey of economic reform and openness in the 1980s. These
reforms also allowed Chinese companies to do business in the private sector, in order to be able to sell
the goods they produce freely in the global marketplace.
The result in the 21st century: China is shedding its reputation as the “extended workbench” of the
West, and is becoming a global market leader, particularly with its high-tech potential. For example,
China is promoting research into Artificial Intelligence, which is already rivalling that created in the
For this reason, when looking to expand into the country or searching for candidates in the ‘Middle
Kingdom’, it is essential not to approach the political and societal system with contempt, since the
country and its people owe their incomparable growth to this system.

candidates on your behalf with the necessary cultural respect and will provide you with optimal support

Many South East Asian states fall within the so-called “Next Eleven” countries, since they are heading
for an economic boom based on their sustainable growth potential. The Republic of Singapore for example
is one of the most highly deregulated and privatised economies in the world. Singapore is also making
efforts to become Asia’s biotechnology centre.
In contrast, Malaysia is considered by South East Asia experts to be one of the region’s most
economically and politically stable countries, integrating traditional and modern aspects, e.g. Islam
and capitalism in an exemplary manner.
Indonesia’s economy is based on the same market economy principles which are well understood from
Germany, and is also the world’s largest palm oil producer. Thailand is also a market economy-oriented
country, and is the largest natural rubber exporter in the world. And within the South East Asian
region, the Philippines are seen as a good all-rounder, having earned a good reputation in the area of
electronics and mechanical engineering, as well as in software development and English-speaking service
provision. The Philippines is also the world’s second largest user of renewable energies.
