For global companies, like ours, an international network of quality recruitment agencies offers great advantages.
One of our highly appreciated HELM colleagues mentioned Derks & Derks as a specialist in recruitment and selection in the biopharmaceutical industry. We met with mr. Jan Derks, who introduced his German and Polish INRALS members Ageneo and Horizon Group. This team of three experienced and highly specialized agencies has provided us with exactly the right candidates for the job. I appreciated the thorough way these agencies work and have great confidence that their global network will be a great success.
Quality recruitment companies with international networks and collaboration can provide what we are looking for in a continuous changing environment where internationalization and cross country collaboration becomes the standard.
Over the years we came to appreciate the higher level of competence and reach of internationally organized and connected talent search companies. Still, to optimize the result one needs local presence, know how, access and execution. The INRALS concept combines the best of both.
I strongly endorse the initiative of quality agencies to join forces in recruitment and selection.
After M&A transaction closing, I needed to speed up organizational turnaround aligning people, processes and IT systems to best practice standards. Regarding HR strategy, it was paramount for us to change dramatically level and nature of competences inside Organization without shaking the boat too much. We decided to be supported by INRALS to foster new hiring program aimed to fill in crucial positions and to bring on board people with high motivation and skills. INRALS demonstrated high pace of professionalism and dedication in partnering with us to reach shared vision and tasks. At the end we have been able to reshuffle completely HR landscape changing more than 50% of initial resources and maintaining organizational stability: it has been a great success and INRALS has been a part of it!
When it comes to Europe wide or multi-country search for Life Sciences executives, I always work with Michel Vandycke from Vandycke & Partners Belgium, founding partner of INRALS. I have found their search efficiency and selection process way above the accepted standards in this business. They won’t close the mission before you are fully satisfied with the selection and the right candidate. The follow up after the recruitment is always done the smart and thoughtful way. Having you fully satisfied is not enough for them, they want to know how they can do better the next time. For me, that’s the difference. In our last mission Michel used his INRALS network to cover a pan European search for a VP business development.
