Industry - Consumer
Clients and networks
During the last twenty years, Alumni’s team focusing on the consumer and retail industry has developed considerable expertise and long-term mutually beneficial networks in areas such as:
Alumni has a team of dedicated consultants and researchers who can access the very best talent in the Nordics for new roles and territories. Our teams work with the largest multinationals to the local boutique organisations providing astute, considered and balanced advice to secure the best talent that will provide competitive advantage to our clients. We support boards of directors, chief executives and HR directors in issues relating to leadership at company management and board level, as well as middle management.
Over the last two decades, global consumer behaviours and purchasing criteria have developed common traits and lost some of the nationalistic distinction. This has driven consumer and retail organisations to balance global branding with local market differentiation, where price, margin, supply chain, innovation and investment need to be carefully planned and managed.
These are the key parameters for success and the people agenda has never been as vital to support this. Internationalisation, global brands, low-cost sourcing and market flexibility are driving a new wave of talent skills for the consumer and retail organisations and only the smart organisations that recognise this and do something about it will prosper in the global market place.
