Top Consulting 2023

Awarded by the Handelsblatt in 13 consulting fields

Every year, the renowned business magazine Handelsblatt selects the Top Consultings in various consulting fields. This year, we are delighted to have been named Top Consultant in 13 categories! This recognition underscores our ongoing commitment and broad expertise, which we use to provide our clients with first-class advisory services.

Excellence thanks to objective selection criteria

The survey was conducted by the Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI). The Handelsblatt explains the survey as follows: HRI identified a peer group of 15,700 management consultants from over 325 consulting firms. They were then asked about the most renowned companies in the respective consulting fields. The top lists created are based on the results of this survey.

The future of the consulting industry: focus on sustainability and flexibility

The consulting industry is changing and increasingly has a strong focus on the ecological transformation of the economy. According to Handelsblatt, the consulting fields of energy, sustainability and decarbonisation are seeing the highest growth with a 24 per cent increase in turnover in 2022. The need for expertise in these areas is growing and companies are increasingly looking for consultants to help them arm themselves against the energy crisis and other sustainability issues. Especially in the energy sector, different consulting fields are merging, such as the connection between mobility and municipal infrastructure. Topics such as hydrogen and energy storage are in high demand, leading to an increased need for specialised consultants in these areas.

In another article, Handelsblatt points out that at the same time a cultural change is taking place in the consulting industry. The possibility of part-time models is gaining in importance in order to attract sufficient junior staff. Long working days are no longer seen as a status symbol. Some consulting firms already offer part-time options to attract talented candidates. Working hours can be reduced on a part-time basis, but consultants need to remain flexible to meet client demands.
