Professional burnout, and what to do about it, “biz.liga.net” - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Kiev, Ukraine – How do you prevent your dream job from turning into the worst mistake of your life? Most career professionals go through periods of self-reflection and search for meaning – a phenomenon known as burnout. “It is common for professionals to seek a new job in a fresh domain, and for different reasons. The majority of them do not understand that they’re experiencing burnout, and they start looking for external reasons. The main factors pushing workers to radically change their life and career vector include dissatisfaction with their chosen profession, financial issues and lack of career growth,” says Vladimir Kolomoets, Country Manager for Ukraine at Pedersen & Partners.

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?

Digital transformation, innovation, and culture - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

The “digital” buzzword is to today's business world what “internet” was in the 1990s. And "digital transformation" covers a wide range of new (but different) technologies now in the same way that "the internet" once did, encompassing innovations such as big data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and robotic process re-engineering. Yet it is a deceptive half-truth to assume that the deployment of bleeding-edge technology is all that is needed for digital success.

Sub-Saharan Africa executive compensation particularities, “Fin24.com” - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Johannesburg, South Africa – “In the Sub-Saharan Africa talent market, job titles and therefore pay scales mean very little – i.e. a Vice President in one country could be a senior manager or a Director in another. Typically companies have simply been grateful that they can get talent to relocate to some of the countries where they operate in subsidiaries, so now they find themselves with confused pay scales. They find their calculations to be driven by what the markets dictate rather than what their organic pay scale specifies for corresponding positions elsewhere in the world,” explains Martin Pike, Managing Director of Sub-Saharan Africa region at Pedersen & Partners.
