The grass is actually greener – Oil & Gas talent finds a new home in renewables - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Houston, USA – Despite optimistic forecasts from many analysts, the Oil & Gas industry just doesn’t seem to be able to pick up where it left off before the oil price slump. The near future prospects look bleak for the sector, as both official and unofficial records show layoffs as the primary resort to cost-cutting measures. A global number of 350,000 layoffs were reported by Bloomberg, and 23,000 jobs were cut in the U.S. alone in the first quarter of 2016.

Pole position – survey reveals common traits of Polish executives – Part 2 - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Warsaw, Poland – Almost three decades have passed since Poland began its journey towards capitalism, and now that the Polish millennial generation has entered the labour market as part of the globalised disruptive wave, it’s worth examining the ways in which Poles position themselves towards other nationalities in the business environment. Many of the most sought-after executives in Poland have experienced both worlds, and know the old ways and new ways of doing business. The unique traits of Polish managers are frequently touched upon during Executive Search projects and in meetings with middle and senior managers (from both Eastern and Western Europe).

The Barnum Effect and your LinkedIn profile - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Warsaw, Poland – The 19th century American businessman P.T. Barnum ran an immensely successful circus, with acrobats, performing horses, strongmen, and – most significantly – fortune-tellers. Barnum was intrigued by the fact that so many people were more than willing to pay good money to be told their fortunes, even though they were all being told the same thing over and over (which he knew because he was listening from behind the scenes). And every customer was satisfied, because they were convinced that they were being given a fortune that was theirs and theirs alone, personal and perfect.

For example, in January 45,000 people were fired but only 37,000 were hired. At the same time, a new trend can be seen: more and more companies are trying to negotiate with their employees and find new ways and opportunities to work together, without resorting to the final measure of termination.

Optimistic Outlook for Egypt 

Egypt emerged from the economic crisis of 2008-2010 reasonably untouched mainly to strong regulation of its banking sector and low susceptibility to downturn in the international financial markets since the country is not yet wellintegrated into these markets.  Other favorable factors were considerable amount of public investment, strong domestic consumption and continued growth in such key sectors as telecommunications and construction.

Pēdējo gadu laikā uzņēmumiem Baltijā nācās saskarties ar līdz šim nepieredzētu neskaidrības un neprognozējamības līmeni, dramatisku patēriņa kritumu atsevišķās nozarēs, dažādu ar uzņēmējdarbības vidi saistītu risku pieaugumu un ārējo tirgu apgrozījuma sarukumu. Šajā kontekstā jautājums par augsta un vidēja līmeņa vadītāju algām tika skatīts ne vienā vien uzņēmumā. Uzņēmumi piekopa dažādas krīzes pārvarēšanas stratēģijas – no pilnīgi egalitāra proporcionāla algu samazinājuma līdz klaji polarizētai „galveno” cilvēku saglabāšanas stratēģijai, pārāk neuztraucoties par mazāk būtisku vadītāju un speciālistu motivāciju.

When the initial crisis hit there were hundreds of employees from all areas of financial services sector who found themselves out of a job and hunting for further career opportunities. Once the initial dust cleared and things began to stabilize a little there were clear trends developing in terms of style of hiring.

Krīze ir atstājusi dramatisku iespaidu uz darba tirgu Centrāl- un Austrumeiropā. Milzīgais pieprasījums pēc cilvēkresursiem ir būtiski krities. Darba ņēmēju tirgus laiks ir pagājis, tagad noteikumus diktē darba devēji. Smagi cietuši tādi sektori kā nekustāmais īpašums, finansu pakalpojumi, automobiļu ražosana un tirdznieciba, konsultācijas. Arī Latvijā, bezdarba līmenim sasniedzot līdz šim nepieredzēti augstu līmeni 15.3 % no ekonomiski aktīvajiem iedzīvotājiem un sarūkot vidējai darba algai, kas pēdējos piecpadsmit gadus bija tikai kāpusi, varam secināt, ka darba tirgus noteikumi ir būtiski mainījušies. Uzņēmumi pārsvarā konkcentrējās uz biznesa reorganizāciju un restrukturizāciju, nevis uz attīstību kā agrāk. Augsta līmeņā vadītāju meklēšanas jomā uzsvars ir bijis uz eksistējošo vadītāju nomaiņu vai jaunu vadītāju piesaisti restrukturēto uzņēmumu jaunajām struktūrvienībām, nevis uz jaunu un attīstošos uzņēmumu vadītāju meklēšanu.
