Business Review’s Working Romania event is taking place today, May 7, and will look at the new trends and challenges in the local human resources industry, as well as at the ways companies are changing their recruitment practices in order to attract and retain top talent.

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

The agenda includes the following topics and speakers:
