In 2 weeks 2015 is gone, so let's have a short look to our latest activities here at Talentor.
Reno Consulting from China came on board of Talentor on 1st of December, which brings our network a big step into the asian market.
I am very happy, that I could bring 3 new partners and 7 countries together with Michael Sarsteiner, our CEO, to Talentor this year.
In 2015 I have screened arround 6.239 companies worldwide and we had further talks with 489, which let us in the end to 3 new partners (France, the Balkan Area & China) and 7 new countries.
Now we are around 175 consultants in 29 offices in 21 countries, besides ePunkt, which has 100 employees in Austria as the biggest IT-Recruiting Company there.
During my global search, it was very interesting to see and hear, how other headhunters worldwide work and discuss their ideas of headhunting in the web 3.0 age. There are a some good, innovative headhunters outside, people from my generation and +/- 15 years.
This is the time of networks now, a megatrend from the last 4 years, which reaches out sometimes different industries and business models.
Crowd Companies by Jeremiah Owyang has showed it to the marked 3 years ago and also Peter Hinssen got it, how important networks will be in near future.
I am glad to be part of this future trend since 19 month, working for Talentor, the new, international brand of ePunkt Internet Recruiting GmbH, founded by Daniel Marwan in 2000 in Austria.
Knowing old-boys-networks since my university time (2001), when I was 2 years part of a fraternity, drinking and fenceing, but without any business net-worth, but learnig something about the spirit of collaboration and partnership across cultures there in combination of my travels to middle -east during this time. Now at Talentor it's good to see, how a network will be build and grow to a global network. I really like that.
So, let's see, what the near future will bring to us and hopefully the world supremacy like Pinky and the Brain. :-) !
Have a good Christmas Time, see you next year fit and relaxed again here in this network or on the world-stage...
