Navigating change in the DACH region
Germany, Austria and Switzerland are key to the European economy. Yet, businesses in the region are facing significant pressures.
Talent retention and development can be a challenge for businesses in Europe. Countries in the DACH region, in particular, are faced with an aging population, declining birth rates and unfavourable immigration policies which could lead to a talent drought in the near future.
Competition is also high. The DACH region is home to financial, manufacturing, auto and pharma champions, but uncertainty caused by geopolitical and economic pressures has forced businesses to review internal policies and hold back on forward-looking investments.
Yet, as a hub of innovation and one of the most progressive areas of Europe, companies in the DACH region are highly committed to the ESG agenda and are making strong solid progress in achieving higher sustainability standards.
At Headspring, we work with some of the largest companies in Central Europe and the DACH region to help them navigate and adapt to change. By combining the expertise of Financial Times journalists and world-class professors, we help our clients translate the big shifts impacting their industries into applicable skills and mindsets to drive transformation.Get in touch
