The haystax way:
Analyse the facts and
trust your experience.

When you have been in the hospitality business for as long as we have, you develop a feeling for who suits which job opening best. But at haystax we do not rely on our intuition alone. Before proposing candidates, we will scrutinize their CV and personal profile, assess their development potential and carefully check the potential future employer’s profile. All these details are recorded in a database where they can be accessed at any time.

However, where people are involved, emotions inevitably play a role. And they are difficult to predict. Even if framework conditions seem ideal, we must make absolutely sure that candidate and employer will get along at the emotional level. Luckily, we have a great deal of experience here and can give you our constructive feedback. Haystax candidates and clients appreciate our candour and honesty. It is part and parcel of our many long-standing trusting relationships with them.


The importance of discretion.

Trust is paramount in executive recruitment. We will never reveal who is currently job hunting or which employer has a job vacancy. Only once the initial selection procedure is over and an interview arranged, do we disclose the name of the candidate and the client. And even when we have successfully recruited someone, we do not share our joy with anyone else. Our lips remain firmly sealed.

This is why we do not publish a list of clients. In a confidential interview, we will be happy to give you more information about our clients.


We are hospitality.

Everyone at haystax has a background in the hotel business or related service area. We have all previously held various positions with personnel responsibility for a number of years.

This means that we are on equal footing with both candidates and clients. Because we know the exact requirements of each sphere of responsibility. Be it F&B manager, sales director, controller, hotel director or chairman. Every haystax office has gathered experience in different areas and we swap our knowhow whenever the need arises.

According to our motto: Recruitment of branch experts by branch insiders.


We’re no start-up.

Collectively, haystax staff can clock up more than 100 years of personal experience in recruiting and headhunting. That takes some doing. We have a wealth of know-how and practical experience which gives us a clear edge in our daily recruitment work.

Candidates and clients profit in a variety of ways: by correctly assessing people and situations we reduce the risk of misunderstandings. Our professional and structured approach means no time is lost. And last but not least, we are taken seriously as a trusted partner to the hospitality industry.
