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.

Our network

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 ambassador of “B Lab Switzerland” for C-Level Executives and board members, Shaperion’s clients benefit not only from guidance towards a “impactful 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.

  • 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 “impactful leadership”, who are able to measure the competencies 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.
