"With his HR expertise, his pragmatism and know-how on HR trend topics, Mr. Baier convinces me and my whole team again and again. Thanks to his support, we were able to achieve successes in a very short time, which still have a lasting effect on our organisation today and have brought our HR department a long way forward. From the development of the HR strategy to the implementation of measures and process optimization. The cooperation is always absolutely professional and trusting."
Thomas Kruer, Head of Personnel, Lebensversicherung von 1871 a. G. München
"With the IBM platform we have created a solution with which we have integrated and automated consolidation, forecasting, planning and reporting. The 4C GROUP supported us fully from the conception to the implementation and rollout. At the same time, an internal team was set up and trained so that we are able to carry out further developments ourselves as far as possible and use Planning Analytics as our "performance hub"."
Oliver Markert, Head of Accounting / Financial Reporting / Planning / Controlling / Tax bei UTA UNION TANK Eckstein GmbH & Co. KG
"The participants' assessment of the workshops was extremely positive, because it provided clarity in many areas about what changes with SAP S/4HANA compared to SAP R/3. It is also useful for the participants to know which steps need to be taken now and before the changeover to S/4HANA and how S/4HANA will affect their future working methods.
Dr. Volker Obermann, Global Head of Group Corporate Finance & Shared Service Areas Viessmann about S/4 HANA Discovery Workshops with 4C GROUP
"The 4C GROUP pursues a consulting approach that is rarely found today. The combination of professional know-how, procedural expertise and technical competence offers considerable added value, especially in performance management. Concept and implementation go hand in hand and you get not only a presentation of options, but real consulting based on individual requirements".
Oliver Braun, Head of Corporate Development, BHS Corrugated
"We did not want to delegate necessary restructuring within the group to external consultants, but rather to take it into our own hands. As mentors, the 4C consultants provided pragmatic support to responsible employees at the beginning of the change processes that were initially unfamiliar. In this way, the company's competence in project management was strengthened and can be called upon for future projects".
Hans-Joachim Lenke, Vorstandsvorsitzender, Ev. Diakoniewerk Schwäbisch-Hall
"It is difficult to agree on uniform occupancy and treatment processes across all types of service. With the support of the 4C GROUP, we have managed to fundamentally reorient the cross-disciplinary and cross-functional cooperation throughout the entire hospital towards the patient."
Dr. Gunther Essinger, Director, zfp - Klinikum Nordschwarzwald
"Working with the 4C GROUP as an external sparring partner, who not only talks about general topics on the surface, but also provides us with concrete approaches and methods for linking key figures, allows us to independently develop a transparent and meaningful management system. The mentoring is reflected positively and sustainably in our daily work".
Thorsten Celary, Director, University Hospital Duesseldorf
"The cooperation with Felix Hesse and his colleagues was extremely enriching for my team and me on several levels. The 4C GROUP combines very good methodology with a high degree of individualisation and adaptation to the needs of the client. The colleagues work very precisely, reliably and bindingly. The work results are very rich in content and consistent. They are very appreciative and accommodating, despite all their goal orientation, which makes the cooperation pleasant for all project participants. And decisive for their mission - they bring along knowledge, ideas and impulses, thus enriching the process of strategy design or the detailed preparation of a development project with important aspects of content."
Marta Steib, Leitung Workstream Kanzleimanagement at DATEV eG
"The challenge of mapping an integrated business model of a global industrial group was big. Markus Noçon and his team masterfully implemented it and created a system that convinces through layout and usability. Despite the different business plans of the individual companies, from construction to production and service, it is thanks to the competence of the team that this has been implemented in Planning Analytics in a user-friendly way. By implementing Cognos Controller at the same time, an integrated system was created that maps the business processes from budgeting and planning to consolidation and reporting. The training of users at our locations in the USA and the Caribbean allows us to develop analyses and reports independently (cultural and language barriers were never an obstacle). Schedule and budget were always adhered to. 4C has repeatedly provided us with valuable ideas and impulses, and through professional methodology has created a system adapted to our specific needs."
Ulrich Wrabetz, Finance Director at Proman AG
"My first experience with the 4C GROUP was in 2014 in the context of the 'NextGeneration HR' reorganisation. Both Dr. Mauterer and Mr. Baier impressed me with their relevant experience, expertise, methodology and personal commitment. On the basis of this positive experience, I recruited Dr. Mauterer to work in the DIN standards committee 'Human Resources Management', where he is still an internationally sought-after expert and partner at DIN/ISO level with a current focus on 'Human Capital Reporting' (ISO30414). Dr. Mauterer has played a major role in shaping the core elements of this standard and has syndicated them in international committees."
Hilger Pothmann, Berlin Personalleiter und Mitglied der Regionalen Geschäftsleitungen (Nord und Ost) at Deutsche Bank AG
„The Banking industry is already following strong compliance and regulatory standards, however compliance management systems are yet not so established in other industry sectors. Dr. Heiko Mauterer and Daniel Lovric from 4C GROUP AG joined my team to give us a presentation on the recent market developments and covered the German Corporate Liability Act. The draft law will regulate the offenses by companies in a new way, allowing adjusted and significantly higher penalties regarding to the size of companies. On the other hand it takes penalty mitigation through effective Compliance Management Systems and internal investigations into account, offering the opportunity to make professional Compliance Management a real asset [...].“
