Influenced by her studies in social psychology and her years of experience in HR Business Consulting, Jennifer Ewers has developed a very good, holistic feel for markets and candidates - especially for trends and motivations of the people behind them.
At dfind.com, Jennifer Ewers focuses on project management, 360° consulting and the expansion of existing customer structures. She has held various positions in HR consulting since 2007 and has proven expertise in the SAP, logistics and financial sectors.

Dr. Simone Hawlitschek
How we work and think influences how we create. For us, it's all about results. These must meet the expectations and requirements of our customers – place and time are secondary. We cultivate a dynamic work culture that allows us to design on our own, and we want to encourage enthusiasm for new things. This is how we turn work into inspiration.
In our team we are always on the same level, have the same data and knowledge available.
Whether in the office or remote, in the morning or evening – important is that the results of our work are in line with the customers’ expectations.
We listen to our surroundings and are always open to new ideas – both for productivity and the working environment.
"The lounge offers an opportunity to relax in a pleasant atmosphere between meetings, to come together with colleagues or have a creative spurt."
"There's no unproductive multitasking in the small conference room. Agile processes encourage intensive, independent teamwork in small groups, with a focus on the skills of each individual."
"Digital connectivity means we can work together from anywhere on earth. The aim is to find results that will convince our clients, no matter where we happen to be."
"The possibility of working in a flexible fashion is the starting point for work-life integration."
"It's liberating not to have permanent workplaces. Desk-sharing makes everyday routines more flexible."
Dr. Simone Hawlitschek
"Many challenges demand agile teamwork. Stimulating project spaces foster creativity: sitting isn't compulsory, and you don't feel you're interrupting other people."
"We work flexibly in constantly changing team configurations. There must be space for meetings, and also somewhere where people can retreat to think things through in peace and quiet."
"To put new work into practice, the office must offer various different zones, all with a feel-good atmosphere."
