Our Services

Welcome to your external personnel department!

Personnel management - simple, effective, clear

Administration is a complex area of personnel management. Today this may mean a specific employment contract; tomorrow you might be looking for a CFO; and the day after you could be negotiating a salary. Every day consists of 1,001 routine tasks, which are never completely identical. External support for personnel management for SMEs (Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises) is a good solution for saving time, money and personnel. And it is effective. B.I.P. offers you exactly the services which you need in your company. You are also in safe hands with the B.I.P.'s recruitment specialists.

We take pains to empathize with your company philosophy. Our thinking is multicultural and we see ourselves as intermediaries between different cultural mindsets and those that run businesses in Germany. We help establish relationships and maintain close contacts. We provide the contact for all matters concerning personnel management in the same way as your in-house personnel department.

We ask questions, you give us your answers - the more in-depth the briefing is, the smaller the discrepancies, in the end, between qualifications of the candidates and the actual job. And we only start the search once you tell us that the qualification profile matches what you expect of your future employee.
