This year, for the ninth time, the personnel magazine honoured the „40 leading HR minds“ from the categories “managers, scientists and consultants”. Who are the opinion leaders in HR? Who does exemplary HR work? The personalities stand out because they have significant influence in the HR sector and act as role models in this field. In addition, they are all actively involved in professional life and have strongly promoted an HR topic. Kai Anderson is once again voted one of the opinion leaders.
The editors of the personnel magazine gave the following reasons for their selection:
“Kai Anderson sets a goal for consulting projects that consultants rarely use as a yardstick: fun. The projects should not only deliver a result for his clients, but should also be fun for those involved. The corporate culture of the HR consultancy Promerit, which he co-founded 20 years ago, includes relaxed manners and a good team spirit, as well as celebrating together, with which Kai Anderson likes to be involved into the early hours of the morning. The industrial engineer knows how to track down trends and turn them into consulting concepts. With the books “Agile Company” and “Digital Human” he has published two highly regarded books, which he has also used to expand his network. He is now well wired on the HR floors. More than a year ago, together with his partner, he sold “his” consultancy Promerit to the listed management consultancy Mercer and has so far ensured that the Promerit brand name and corporate culture have been retained. The thoroughbred entrepreneur now has to report, but enjoys the international scene that the new environment offers.”
