      • Application training, simulation and interview briefing
      • Best practice examples for unsolicited applications
      • Options to place a personal profile in online career portals

      Testing Procedures

      By offering systematic testing procedures, we support you in hiring a suitable candidate.

      We make use of technical assessments, such as language or IT skills, as well as of standardized psychological evaluations, determining aptitude, performance, personality or motivation.

      The respective method is chosen based on established scientific principles; on these foundations, we can draw valid and reliable conclusions.

      Cooperating with national and international providers, we are able to offer the appropriate testing procedure for clarifying almost any question. A connection to the professional context and the compliance of the partaking candidates are decisive factors in the selection of methods.

      We consider the consistently positive feedback of our clients and of the tested candidates an encouragement for our method, combining scientifically standardized testing procedures with an approach that takes the personality of the candidates and their potential working environment into account.

      Managing Partner

      Expertise

      Already towards the end of his studies at Vienna Technical University and Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, Herwig Stöckl began his professional career in the software industry with a focus on the telecom sector within the Siemens AG in Vienna, Austria. His leadership talents were used early in challenging projects for innovative solutions for callcenters and teleworking. In parallel Herwig Stöckl also took a major role in the expansion of Siemens into Central Europe. He succeeded in attracting and retaining talent especially in Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Croatia and managed a cultural change in the teams there to transform them to top performing SW development teams. 1999 he became one of the youngest Vice-Presidents in Siemens and worked instead with solutions for automotive, transportation, railway and tourism including the first internet based booking system for World-exhibition EXPO 2000 in Hannover. He had full P&L responsibility and his business acumen generated one of the highest margins in the group.

      End 2000 Herwig Stöckl moved to Gothenburg, Sweden and joined Ericsson. Back in telecom he started with a global responsibility in spearhead R&D developing IP stacks with top IT security and O&M interfaces for the first mobile data nodes in the brand new GPRS domain. Then he was global head of Ericsson’s main project office for customer projects monitoring and staffing the largest projects Ericsson had those years, e.g. full turn-key projects to establish new mobile operators in new countries. After several years in this role he was asked to join Ericsson’s new unit for m-commerce and he lead the launch of a pan-european mobile money service. The success lead to the promotion to the COO role for m-commerce which even included sales support responsibilities. Under his responsibility Ericsson could win and deliver on major contracts in Africa, Pakistan and Latin America and operates now two of the worlds largest mobile money schemes.

      Then Herwig Stöckl was asked again by headquarters to move, this time to the M&A department to shape up the integration of acquired businesses and the separation work for divestment targets. Together with only a hand-full colleagues he managed to achieve significant better results than before, among them the successful sales of a Chinese factory including a product portfolio, the establishment of an independent operating unit for a totally new businiess model or the creation of a new big joint venture in the media solutions domain. He continued to work with such transformation projects and also helped companies in international expansion when he continued his career as independent management consultant.
      Combining his heart for Austria and his passion for global business Herwig Stöckl decided 2019 to join ISG as a Global Managing Partner for the industry sector.
