People, excellence, honesty and innovation are the four pillars on which Ackermann International’s DNA is built, says Managing Partner US, Begoña González-Blanch. In this interview with Rocking Talent, the Spanish executive who has lived in the United States for more than 6 years, emphasized the importance of challenging the status quo, redesigning, reinventing and that the point of gravity today is no longer on the organization, but on the candidate, among other issues.
Asked about the characteristics marks this new era of HR, Begoña González-Blanch replies: “This new era has highlighted the importance of people within companies, who are the greatest asset. The results and reputation of all companies depend on their performance and happiness. Therefore, the HR function has ceased to be merely the administrative manager of payroll and conflicts and has become a key strategic lever for the sustainability of the company because without talent, without their knowledge, performance, commitment, creativity and innovation, there is no possibility of a future for any organization.”
In this new labor reality there is more and more turnover, remote employment, and the attraction and retention of talent is a challenge for organizations, Managing Partner US at Ackermann International recommends: “We are indeed in a highly competitive and dynamic market, so my recommendation is always: work with dedication and passion, strengthen your personal contacts and networking, always do a little more than what is expected of you, because, among other things, it will help you grow and excel, and success and new opportunities will come your way.”.
