Family businesses are often complex and conflict-prone, because private and business matters are often intertwined. In addition, family businesses are often smaller, so that managers are often more involved in operational tasks than in large companies. Employees of family businesses often have to possess more entrepreneurial core competencies and show a higher degree of responsibility. This can become a real challenge for specialists and managers.
In general, the special features of family businesses can be mentioned:
- Regional roots, even when operating globally.
- Smaller size: often belong to the category of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
- Close link between private and business sectors.
- Organisational structures that are not only of purely business benefit, such as holding structures, in order to be able to implement personnel decisions desired by the family.
- Strong position of the owners, who have a significant influence on strategic decisions.
- Less personnel and financial resources, dependence on financial backers and greater involvement of private assets.
- The focus is on continuity of the ownership structure over generations as well as stable and long-term growth.
- More shared values between family entrepreneurs and their employees, also as a basis for necessary change processes.
- Generational change can break through continuity and threaten existence.
The search for optimally suited candidates for specialist and management positions in family businesses requires a special understanding and empathy for the corporate culture and value system of the owner family.
We fill specialist and management positions in family businesses and advise owners who wish to hand over the management of their company.
We know how important the personality of a candidate is in addition to his or her professional qualifications. Especially in the case of handing over the management or even the whole company, it is very important that the owner family and the candidate fit together in the long term and that the life's work is continued both in the owners' interest and in a future-oriented manner.
