AGENDA

In a daring attempt to cover the Romanian recruiting phenomenon, from the basics - work skills and ethics that are or should be nurtured in school - to the digital processes that empower recruiters to perfectly match talents with employer brands as well as data and marketing strategies to understand future employees, Business Review is proud to welcome guest speakers who will share opinions, trends, as well as behind-the-scene insights.

Giant tech companies, state-of-the-art co-working spaces or start-ups working their way up the career ladder, they all find it highly challenging to find smart, innovative and educated employees. #WorkingRomania brings together the highly-skilled and successful HR professionals who find the best jobs for the talented, but scarce and picky labor force.

Join us and major stakeholders in the HR sector, including state officials and representatives of major companies, on November 12, at Courtyard by Marriott Bucharest Floreasca.

Panel Discussion: First hand impressions and open debate with the Minister of Labor and Social Justice, big private employers and HR stars about the future of the Romanian labor environment

• Developing education systems and learning to be up-to-date with a rapidly-changing work landscape. Is the re-establishment of vocational schools an answer?
• The foreign worker quota has risen to new record figures. Does this solve the scarcity of labor in construction, hospitality or agriculture? How does it affect the local economy in the long term?
• Can we expect a migration of workers from state companies and institutions to the private sector in the current political and economic contexts?
• Should the labor market become a national priority and what we can do about it?

Panel discussion: Business Performance as a result of outstanding HR proficiency

There is a simple and straightforward explanation for why HR offices are often right next door to the CEO’s. Productive people make businesses perform well and it is the task of HR professionals to understand, recruit, train and keep employees happy and efficient, even when they have to drive organizational, structural and operational changes.

• Talent and Performance Management: the art inside HR departments
• Payroll, compensations and benefits beyond Excel books. Fostering mental and physical wellbeing takes workers and teams to unexpected performance
• The power of company culture and employer branding nowadays
• Acquiring new skills is quintessential for thriving in the future workplace. Is that an issue for the employer or the employee?
• The Mirror Question for every HR professional: “Why do you want to work for us?”. Can you answer it?

Foreign Investors Summit – 6th edition

ABOUT

As of last year Poland became a full member of the group of the most developed nations in the world, thus creating a path for Romania to join this elite group before long. Recent economic, political and social developments in our country, steady economic growth, a highly regarded Presidency of the Council of the European Union, reinforcement of the state policies through elections, have altogether created an ideal context for a new brighter perspective on the future.

• Is there a real evolution in Romania’s development and how we are to benefit from the new global positioning of our country?
• Is a spike in FDI rate to be expected after two years of stagnation?
• Have the local markets reached maturity, especially those with a traditional appeal to foreign investors: energy, IT, real-estate, services, banking and agriculture?

Answers to these important questions and many more will be debated during a comprehensive analysis of the market and of the foreign investors’ perception of Romania in the years to come.

Business Review proudly presents the 6th edition of the Foreign Investors Summit, the most awaited event that brings together foreign business communities, state authorities and diplomats. Join us, professionals across the main industries, an exceptional line-up of speakers and representatives of major FDIs in our country, for a discussion on leadership and ways to build a brighter and more sustainable future for Romania.

Poland recently attained the developed economy status, thus creating a precedent for other Eastern European peers to follow. When should we expect Romania to go from an emerging to a developed market and what should be done for that purpose?

Panel Discussion | Investments in the real estate sector

•2019 has been a record-breaking year for M&A on the Romanian real-estate market, with multiple transactions above EUR 100 million. Does this mean that we can talk about a mature market, at least in the office sector?
•What are the main factors that could push up the current slightly lower yields and thus attract new investors?
• Bucharest, with its above EU average net income per capita and high concentration of businesses and institutions, is far from being a saturated market for foreign investments. Foreign investors have generally focused on the office sector, leaving most residential development to local players. Can we expect a change?
• When will underdevelopment cease to be an investment opportunity?
Case study - Is the real estate market outside Bucharest sustainable based on future demand?
• Will the hotel market in Romania attract further investments?

• The horizontal auto industry - automotive components - is now one of the biggest employers in Romania, with no signs of slowing down. Is there room for new investments considering the scarcity of workforce in the sector?

Concluding Panel Discussion | Is the road from emerging to developed country threat to FDIs?

• While Romania’s said to be the most stable country in the SEE region, its foreign investment levels are declining. Is this a temporary phenomenon or is it a trend? And why is this happening?
• What does Romania look like in the eyes of local vs. foreign investors?
• Romanian companies should start investing in other markets, which would be a signal that our country has reached the level of a developed economy. What keeps our local business champions from expanding abroad and what can be done?

Working Romania

May 7, 2019 | ARCUB | BUCHAREST

ABOUT

Business Review's Working Romania Event looks at the new trends that challenge the leading local human resources industry to uncover how they navigate the changes affecting the manner in which we work, as well as at the ways companies and human resources executives are changing their recruitment practices in order to attract and retain top talents.

The conference this year will focus on the two major trends on the local labour market:

  • Romania is becoming the biggest importer of workforce in South-East Europe in an attempt to cover the workforce crisis in sectors like constructions, HORECA or services, and
  • Companies seeking highly qualified employees are developing sophisticated strategies that help them meet the needs and expectations of young employees - customizing office space, offering unique benefits, high salaries and flexible schedules or integrating new technologies that can improve employee experience.
