How to build a sustainable talent pool for Consumer Goods companies - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Tallinn, Estonia – Talent is a hot topic – at the national level, in business ventures from global corporations to start-ups, and everywhere else, it seems. Everybody knows that "talent" is important for their own business or country, and feels obliged to mention it frequently. But what is actually behind these words? Does your organisation have a clear talent strategy and an action plan, and has it defined what exactly it wants to achieve? Most importantly, does the strategy exist only on paper, or is there clear follow-up on progress and measured outcomes?

This is the first such referendum in the EU, so it is naturally difficult to make predictions about the outcome, and in particular the impact on the executive search sector of what has come to be known as “Brexit”.
