In this sector, which is comprised of the agri-food and non-food markets, major companies with the capacities to adapt to market developments rub shoulders with a multitude of SMEs that have to evolve in order to survive. On the non-food market, which will very soon suffer from excess capacity, businesses will have to restructure and reexamine their offers. In agri-food, although major companies have managed to hold their own by streamlining, the many small operators are struggling and often have complicated relationships with distributors. Profits are plummeting and their long-term future is under threat.
However, striving for greater volumes is not the solution. Vertical integration strategies, with associations upstream to avoid the hazards of inevitable increases in the price of raw materials, and procedures to enhance productivity and achieve international growth, are the emerging key drivers of success. This struggle to ensure a long-term future has brought about new challenges for the sector in terms of human resources and employment.
We help businesses with their new performance challenges. We implement innovative, tailored and, where necessary, pooled commercial procedures allowing them to conquer new markets, enhance their productivity and preserve their profits. We help them restructure and anticipate the jobs and skills they require: assistance with the implementation of a new organisational structure, creation of new business lines, process optimisation and cost reductions, forward-looking skills management, HR due diligence where integration occurs and training, etc. Moreover, we do everything we can to enhance the motivation and mobility of employees.
We also assist businesses with their recruitment and assessment procedures. Boasting renowned expertise in this field, our consultants enable companies operating in the consumer goods sector to surround themselves with talented individuals combining leadership and performance who are able to devise new, competitive business models, and to take on employees with strong commercial potential capable of meeting international challenges.
