About SIGVARIS France
SIGVARIS is the world leader in the manufacture of compression and medical socks, tights and stockings. With its parent company based in Winterthur, this family-run Swiss group has 1,450 employees in nine subsidiaries throughout the world, and sales of around €200 million.
Its subsidiary SIGVARIS SAS is responsible for the ESW area and has four sites in France and a sales subsidiary in the UK. With sales of €114 million, the company has 720 employees, half of them based at two sites in Loire (42), at Andrezieux-Boutheon and at Saint-Just-Saint-Rambert, the company’s headquarters.
As part of the restructuring of the French subsidiary’s management, SIGVARIS SAS contacted Apostrof to help with the direct approach recruitment of half of the new management team: general management, sales, communication, etc. As a result of Virginie Graziani’s tailored research and specific expertise, a number of highly experienced employees have joined the company’s management, ready to deploy an ambitious strategy for expansion.
Using the Direct Approach technique for recruiting the new management team
“Virginie and her team were skilled at identifying and attracting the talent necessary for us to keep growing. The professionalism of Apostrof’s methods, especially its assessment centers, and its ethical approach to recruitment, mean that we can be sure of having committed employees who are in step with Sigvaris’ human values and who are blossoming in their new roles and integrating successfully with their teams. The close relationship it built with us and the stability of our contacts with Apostrof have meant that it has been a key contributor to Sigvaris’ development.”
Jean Luc Simon, Deputy CEO, SIGVARIS
About Direct Approach recruitment
Direct Approach recruitment, or ‘headhunting’, is a way of approaching candidates from a specific business sector who have experience and skills in specific environments. These experienced assets are not generally actively looking for employment opportunities, so their profiles are difficult to find via the usual recruitment channels.
