About Oliver Schulz-Oster
Your candidates expect an exciting job, but also a motivating and fair salary package. I develop a package for your key people that is competitive both externally and internally.
With 25 years of experience as an international HR manager with responsibility for talent acquisition, I know the challenges of medium-sized companies. I have lived and worked in 6 countries, speak 5 languages and have travelled in a wide range of industries. Besides consulting, I work as a freelance lecturer at the University of Europe in Berlin with young, curious people.
I have worked with Oliver-san to lead change management for a small-medium sized enterprise in North Asia region. We worked together for changing the local grading system to align with the global one and for creating a talent matrix. His strength is not only C&B and Talent Management area but also his active listening skills to understand the people and culture to make things happen. In my experience Oliver-san has added real value on the business, and brings a fantastic mix of professionalism, insight, creativity with sense of humor. I would highly recommend Oliver-san for your HR transformation.
