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.

Minsk, Belarus – In a tough economy, Belarus’ employers run the show. This means that the number of dismissed employees in Belarus is currently considerably higher than the number of newly-hired employees. 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.

The Middle East has certainly had its ups and down over the last 18 months and although there are more positive signs we are still not out of the woods. 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.
