We’ve helped Hager Group increase traffic, engagement and influence on digital channels, over the course of 4 years.

We started from zero. Hager Group now has a social following of nearly 200,000 targeted followers.


Hager Group is a leading supplier of solutions and services for electrical installations in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. The company was founded in 1955 by Hermann Hager and Dr. Oswald Hager together with their father Peter, and today remains an independent business, owned and run by members of the Hager family, with its head office in Blieskastel, Germany.

The organisation of the company as a European Company (Societas Europaea, SE) underlines both its cultural diversity and its European roots. Hager Group is, nevertheless, a worldwide business: 11,500 employees generate a turnover of 2 billion euros (in 2018). Components and solutions are produced in 22 production sites around the globe and customers in more than 120 countries all over the world trust in them.


  • Attracting specific talent: graduate, sales and engineering to a small-town location.
  • Launching the employer brand on social media, as Hager Group’s social media presence was minimal.
  • Increasing social media audience, in followers as well as engagement.
  • Boosting brand awareness, positioning and the employer brand as a whole.
