We spent a significant
part of our careers in this industry and hence we understand the recent evolutions of this sector. Accordingly, we help our clients attract inclusive leaders through assessing candidate’s agility, innovation and ability to take risks. Retailers want your business and are using ever more
sophisticated tools to understand their
customer’s buying habits. By capturing more information about you companies can build trust and loyalty by offering products, promotions, rewards, and services that you will value. Search executives, discovering talented marketing and technology leaders who are engaged in this capture and analysis of information for customer-facing companies is a tremendous
opportunity to serve our clients that may need that kind
of talent on their teams. FMCG companies used to be
attractive employers per se. In the past, their was an over supply of excellent candidates. Nowadays, candidates
