Handelsblatt – A Call for More Career Crossovers

“Individuals willing to crossover careers can help to bridge the growing gap between politics and business”, writes Michael Ensser, Managing Director at Egon Zehnder Germany in Handelsblatt. The gap between business and politics has widened, with regulation introduced by politicians fuelling resentment on the part of managers in sectors like banking, energy and telecoms. The best way to combat this growing alienation is to encourage both private and public sector leaders to switch career tracks, argues Essner. This would promote greater diversity in terms of views, biographies and experiences in both sectors.
