Mihai-Alexandru Cristea 15/09/2023 | 09:34

The highly anticipated Working Romania conference returns today, promising to be the pivotal event of the season for the Romanian HR industry. Hosted by Business Review at the Courtyard by Marriott Bucharest Floreasca, this event marks the Autumn 2023 edition of an already established bi-annual format.


For the past 9 editions, Working Romania has been the epicenter of HR innovation and knowledge sharing, drawing in top-tier executives, influential partners, and a prestigious audience representing major employers in Romania.

Panel 1 | 2023 at a Glance: Workforce Market, Taxation, Challenges, Opportunities, and Trends (11:00 AM – 12:30 PM) delves into the critical topics affecting the Romanian labor landscape. Eminent speakers including Cristian Vasilcoiu, State Secretary in the Ministry of Labour and Social Solidarity, Romulus Badea, Vice-President at Romanian Manpower Importers’ Employer Association, Iulia Buciuman, DigitON Program Coordinator at CCIFER and Mirela Popa, Agency Manager at BestJobs, will dissect the implications of taxation changes, regulations impacting Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMM), and the rise of the foreign workforce in Romania. The event will also unveil exclusive 2023 trends for the local workforce market, presented by Bestjobs experts.

Panel 2 | Employer Branding | Get Inspired by the Best (12:45 PM – 2:30 PM) brings together HR luminaries such as Alina Soare, Head of People Development, EMEA, at Endava, Mihai Etcu, Talent & Performance Management Leader at Continental Sibiu, Antoniu Panait, Managing Director at Vastint Romania, Andrada Popescu, Senior Associate, Employment Law Specialist at Noerr, and Alin Popescu, Partner Europe at DHR Global to discuss attracting and retaining top talents, navigating economic and geopolitical landscapes, fostering engagement, and addressing the latest HR trends.

“Both employers and employees are navigating a new world of collaboration, where working models are being reimagined and reshaped by the latest trends. Having #OurPeople at the center of our company is much more than a goal, it’s a journey we are taking step by step in Endava,” Alina Soare told BR.

“With the labour market continuously shifting, the pressure is on employers to find new response strategies to build and maintain their teams. That is where “quiet hiring” comes in – an approach to recruitment that is quickly gaining popularity in the business world,” says Andrada Popescu.

“While no one can predict the future with absolute certainty, it’s clear that the world of work is changing, just as the world itself is. Looking ahead at how work will shift, along with trends affecting the workforce and workplaces, the map of the future of work at the highest levels will include a mix of occupations, workforce skills that will be reshaped and new working models,” declared Mihai Etcu.

This event offers not only a platform for knowledge sharing but also invaluable networking opportunities during short breaks and a networking lunch.

Moreover, for those unable to attend in person, Working Romania – Autumn 2023 is accessible via a live stream on the Business Review YouTube channel, allowing a wider audience to participate in the discussions, gain insights, and contribute to shaping the future of HR in Romania.

The conference is a testament to the dedication of Business Review in fostering an elite community of HR C-level professionals and industry leaders who are committed to transforming HR into a driving force within the business world.

“This event isn’t just a conference; it’s a transformative experience, a gathering of minds dedicated to redefining HR in Romania. Together, we shape the future of work, building a stronger, more innovative workforce for our nation.” Says Catalin Alistari, General Manager at Business Review.
