EMA Partners International Holds Annual Meeting Of Partners In Barcelona
The Partners and senior members of EMA Partners International gathered for an annual meeting in Barcelona to address client trends and market conditions in executive search and talent management.
The economic outlook was reviewed in relationship to various industry sectors in order to identify where the demands for talent exist.
Alberto Miranda, host of the AGM and Partner with EMA Partners Spain, said: “In highly competitive markets, an organization’s success depends largely on its ability to find and retain the best talent – this is particularly true in emerging markets where a large pool of talent has yet to be developed.”
Reporting on searches undertaken during the last four years, results indicate that healthcare and life science sectors show the most growth around the globe and offer the best opportunities for executive advancement. Financial services remains strong, with an increasing demand for human capital that is well rounded with specific technical skill sets or niche expertise combined with co-creativity and leadership capabilities. There is worldwide demand for seasoned analytics and Big Data professionals, a niche area where products and services are predicted to exceed three trillion dollars and generate millions of new jobs.
“It is necessary to find leaders who can lead in fast-paced environments and can strategically plan and direct tactics that effectively respond to changes including market shifts, revolutionary technology, consumer demands and competition. Moreover, companies are finding it is essential to operate on both local and global levels”, said EMA Partners International’s newly elected Chairman Chris Hardy. “It is not just our clients who must engage in agile thinking – as executive search practitioners, we must also employ professionals who can think fast and creatively to provide multiple options to complex human capital requirements – and we are being proactive in fulfilling that objective.”
