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.

Panel Discussion: 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.

Meet top local and international speakers. Government officials, strategy experts, leading executives of multinational companies, forward-thinkers and actors

Opening Panel Discussion | Is Romania ready to enter the developed countries’ club?

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?
• Will the hotel market in Romania attract further investments?

• Romania is already a hallmark of the European car making industry, thus creating a context of logistics networks and suppliers, especially in the western part of the country. Should we expect new big foreign investments from other global car makers?
• 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?
• As one of the main budget contributors, does the auto industry not have a rightful claim to better infrastructure?

• 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?

Reasons to attend

Companies and consultants in the energy industry searching for the best ways to adapt to new regulations, understand the current trends, look for the possible answers on new regulations in energy, prepare for future challenges and find possible ways to transform challenges into business opportunities.
