The importance of company culture and values to attracting and retaining top talent

Multinational corporations have for many years spent a lot of time, resources and budget in developing and communicating their culture and values, but small and medium sized companies have often been slow or reticent to allocate their more limited resources to doing the same. In my opinion no matter what size the company, building a strong, identifiable company culture and values is critical not only to driving growth and profitability but also in attracting and retaining top talent to drive the organisation to new successes and here's why.

Hiring Marketing Execs

Hiring a marketing exec with global responsibility versus one that has a regional or country role requires different skill and mindsets.

Peter Wharton shares his viewpoint from experience both as a marketing exec for tech companies and as a specialised recruiter for pioneering software vendors.

Hiring Product Managers

Peter Wharton shares his experience in what to look for when hiring product managers for tech companies.

Recruitment ROI

Recruiting talent is often perceived as a cost to minimise but should be considered an essential investment in increasing the value of the company a key element of strategic business planning.

Does combining Sales Operations and Marketing Operations into one role make sense?

Peter Wharton is seeing more companies recruit executives to run both sales operations and marketing operations rather than maintain them as separate departments and explains why. Peter is managing partner at Antal International Geneva and recruits c-level, sales, marketing and operations management talent for pioneering tech companies.
