Executive Search on the brink of Brexit - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

London, UK – It is the issue that nobody in the United Kingdom can avoid right now: the referendum on European Union membership that will be held on June 23rd. On this date, British voters could take a momentous step and vote to leave a club that most European countries are members of, or wish to join. 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”.

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.
