The firm’s clients are large commercial businesses that are mostly in the branches of IT services, telecommunication, manufacturing, and financial services. Carrington Associates offers a six-month guarantee period for senior placements.

“Considering our European presence and the experience we have gained, we have come to realize that joining an international network such as Talentor is a logical progression for us,” said Mr. Kadic. “It allows us to showcase the potential of our region and provide support to international companies seeking to explore this market as their next resourcing location. Overall, joining the Talentor network can provide numerous benefits for executive search and talent management professionals, including access to a global network, exchange of knowledge and best practices, brand recognition, greater efficiency, and a shared values and culture.”

“Bosnia and Herzegovina, like any country, has its own unique cultural norms, rich diverse cultural heritage, and practices that may be different from those of other countries,” Mr. Kadic said. “As a result, visitors or outsiders may encounter cultural misunderstandings or differences that can be challenging to navigate. Despite its proximity to European cultural and business centers, our region maintains traditional values and places great importance on family, hospitality and religious customs, which may come as a surprise to those unfamiliar with our history, including both Westerners and Easterners who may not be accustomed to our European mindset.”
