Process of professional reorientation as an offer out of the talent cycle
As a strong sparring partner, we ask you to take a closer look at yourself and your management team. We accompany you through the entire career transition process – from clarifying your needs to the end of the probationary period.
Two strategic partnerships allow us to provide you with comprehensive and premium support.
The partnership with “Schulthess Zimmermann & Jauch” allows us to expand Shaperion’s offering and to support our clients in need of board advice and executive search with an international focus.
As “B Leader” and educational partner of “B Lab Switzerland” for board members and C-Level, Shaperion’s clients benefit not only from guidance towards a “sustainable culture” of leadership, but also from a corresponding network.
As bridge builder, we maintain close relationships with technical colleges and universities where we hold various mandates. It is essential for us to keep our finger on the pulse of research in this way. For example, to be able to use new knowledge or to anticipate developments at an early stage.

What is our USP? What sets us apart from our competitors?
- We focus on individualized support, which is why we deliberately avoid workshops.
- Reputational risk is one of the most valuable possessions that has to be minimized. Due to our experience on the subject of socially acceptable job cuts at the world’s largest asset manager in Switzerland (before and after the financial crisis), we have a strong sense of the reputational risk for companies, teams, and individuals.
- We are the first “Newplacer” in Switzerland with a focus on “agile leadership”, who are able to measure the competencies of agile leadership and to develop and internalize them with leadership teams. Which is why this instrument is also part of all of our packages.
- Most executive coaches have broad leadership experience outside of the human resources business.
