The Challenges of Finding and Retaining Talent Finding the right people for key roles is often a difficult task. When recruiting for finance, audit or related positions, employers are facing a number of challenges: Talent shortage Expectation gap Duration Volume Costs Risk Most companies believe there are enough experienced professionals on the market to easily find the right people for any vacancy. The truth is there is a growing deficit of highly skilled finance and audit professionals on the Romanian market. At the same time the complexity of the job requirements is increasing together with the business challenges of the organisation. There are difficulties in articulating and communicating the technical requirements and management expectations to the candidates until late in of after the recruitment process. There is risk that candidates do not fully understand the role until they are employed, just to find themselves in the wrong place. The duration of the recruitment process from initiation to employment is too long (up to several months). Key time consuming activities include job advertising, initial screening of a large number of CVs, technical and soft skills assessment. For the last two years the number of active jobseekers on the market increased significantly and the average desired salary decreased. From a volume perspective this is a positive trend for the employers. However, it will take more time and effort to assess and test these candidates than before. Companies always receive large volumes of applications to an advertised vacancy (over 3-400 applications is not uncommon). The traditional internally managed sourcing and recruitment process requires a significant investment (time and cost) from the organisation's HR professionals and senior management: screening, tests, multiple interviews. In addition there is an opportunity cost of being distracted from core HR and business projects. The potential for failure is significant and the related costs for the business extend beyond the costs for repeating the recruitment process. ASCENTOR – Recruitment & Executive Search Companies should not wait for the financial crisis to make good candidates available. A good candidate will always be a good candidate, in any industry, both during crisis or growth. And companies will always compete for them. Which are the best pools for recruiting skilled finance or audit professionals? • Professional services organisations (Big Four, second tier accounting firms, leading local firms) • Highly regulated organisations (e.g. financial services) • Large multinationals with best practice internal functions • Regional or local businesses with self made internal functions and practices • Independent (freelance) professionals However it is critical to match the candidate's background and experience with the organisation type and culture: • A top performer in a large multinational or bank may fail in an entrepreneurial environment. • A candidate from a leading small business or a freelancer may not perform as well or be demotivated in a highly standardised structure. • When recruiting from industry for the public practice, consideration should be paid to additional requirements such as business development, selling and people skills. 2
Recruitment & Executive Search Finding the best talent ASCENTOR continues the experience of the HR consulting firm Human Resources International Services, which was established in 2005. We cover a wide range of competencies in human resources management, executive search and recruitment. Our executive search approach is designed to increase the effectiveness and speed of the recruitment process. Executive Search Based on our background in finance, we are recruiting from "inside" the profession. As opposed to traditional recruitment, we leverage our personal network of contacts in order to obtain independent references and credentials about the candidates and generate a strong shortlist of candidates very quickly. Specialist Recruitment Our network of contacts in the finance, audit and consulting community is a key asset, that allows us to speed up the recruitment process. We identify potential candidates through networking, referrals and intensive search. Technical assessment of candidates' competencies We have the capability to conduct a detailed assessment of the candidates' finance technical competencies and soft skills, based on analysing the candidate career background and interviewing the persons who are best suited for the job role.
