RETAIL - KARSTADT
Our market intelligence and executive search projects led to six successful senior placements for Karstadt, a large European fashion retailer, with a 100% stick rate and savings of 37.4% on annual recruitment costs.
Karstadt was in a turnaround situation and required an external, pan-European talent pipeline for womenswear, menswear and childrenswear across buying, merchandising and design at director, category head and senior management level.
Phased over two and a half years by category, our process began with in-depth market intelligence researching and analysing 190 mutually agreed companies in UK and Europe. We identified 3,500 individuals and assessed their talent suitability. We supported the reworking of recruitment marketing messages to improve employer brand perception and established reward incentives, organisational structure and propensity to move.
We placed six senior leaders who are regarded by both market and client as ‘top talent’. The company saw a 100% stick rate and saved 37.4% on annual recruitment costs in year two.
"Anybody can fill a vacancy but it takes someone insightful to find and bring the right person into a role. Understanding the importance of chemistry in any relationship is what ignites the fire that feeds great ideas – that's Endaba."
The late Gillian Berkmen,
Chief Merchandising Officer, Karstadt
