We know the best minds for your company's digital transformation

NELEX helps companies find the best digital minds – across all industries. In order to succeed in the challenges of digital transformation, companies in key positions need people who not only know and actively develop digital values and processes, but also live them.

Management skills and digitisation expertise need to be brought together. For the digital transformation of a company, it is not enough to create a new Chief Digital Officer position, but to fill the entire management with candidates who combine management skills and digitalisation expertise. This also applies to positions such as CEO or CFO. 

At NELEX, we are in contact with people who can drive the digital transformation in your company. Our teams of consultants consist of experienced consultants who have been closely following candidates in their career planning and development for several years, leading companies that are ready to face the challenges of digital transformation, as well as startups that have been digital from the start. At least four consultants work on a project at the same time.

For four years in a row, WirtschaftsWoche has awarded us top marks for our work as Best Personnel Consultants in the categories "Digitalisation", "IT" and "Consulting/Professional Services". NELEX AG has also been ranked among FOCUS's top personnel service providers in the "Executive Search" category in Germany several times in a row. The awards emphasise the high quality standards and agile approach with which NELEX meets the requirements for executive-level appointments.

Diagnostics 360° E-profiling Of Candidates

In addition, NELEX not only supports your application process with the search for suitable employees, but also optionally supplements the process with 360° eProfiling. With this procedure you will achieve an even more qualified "matching" between requirements and the candidate's qualifications.

NELEX has decided to cooperate with the global provider Profiles International. In a 90-minute online assessment, mental abilities, behavioural characteristics and professional interests can be determined and compared with the requirements profile. In addition, we receive concrete advice on which questions should be taken up again in an interview with regard to the requirement profile. In addition to the usual qualification process, the candidates in the final process also undergo this aptitude diagnostic procedure. The results obtained from this provide you with another excellent basis for making the ideal candidate's decision.

ProfileXT® is the most technologically advanced system that allows predictions to be made about success in the workplace by measuring human potential. Due to the convincing results, we extend the warranty period to 12 months when using this method.

Certified customers of ProfileXT include Vorwerk & Co. KG, Körber AG, ERGO Versicherung AG, ABB Management Services, Caramba Holding GmbH, Albert Berner Deutschland GmbH, Gestra AG, Chemetall GmbH, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co.
