Special report from Equipos&Talento magazine | 27-Oct-2014

The 1st International Barcelona HR Conference which has been organized by Advantage Consultores in cooperation with Aedipe Catalunya, the Catalan Association of HR directors, and Career Partners International, was held in the Catalan Palau de la Música on October 3rd 2014.

Under the title “Global trends in HR”, 16 high level speakers from different countries presented their ideas and conclusions on current tendencies in HR such as global mobility, international talent acquisition, job rotation and best practices for youth employability by means of the practical experiences of big companies and organizations of different sectors.

The short presentations were note worthy not only for the inspirational ideas that were shared, but also for the dynamic approach and down to earth ideas that were put forward. This whole dynamic enabled active participation by the more than 250 international HR experts present.

According to Sylvia Taudien, Managing Director of Advantage Consultores, the purpose of this conference was to connect HR people from all around the world to share knowledge and best practices in terms of practical experiences and to strengthen their networks. She emphasized that “the spirit of this conference should be, of course, business orientated but also very generous and human”.

Due to the great success and interest shown in the 1st International Barcelona HR Conference, the conference will now become an anual event. The 2nd International Barcelona HR Conference will be held in Barcelona on October 9th 2015. Read more » 1st International Barcelona HR Conference report from Equipos y Talento

  • With Advantage Consultores we have always been informed in detail about the progress of the search. In a field as intangible as headhunting they stand out through their dependability and commitment.

  • I worked with Sylvia during several years. During this time I could discover probably the best Executive Search that I have worked with during my 15 years of experience. Sylvia is a high responsible, fully involved & competent professional. In addition to all of these, she really cares & listens to the people that she works with. Sylvia has my highest personal & professional recommendation.

  • The most efficient and accurate search process for one of our profiles most difficult to find. It has been closed in a record time with a perfect profile.

    Emma Giner International HR Director at Massimo Dutti

  • As a professional in the HR sector, I have dealt with many consultants, but the level of professionalism I have seen at Advantage Consultores, from my point of view as a candidate, was excellent. Not only for the received treatment and feedback at each step of the process, but also for the level of detail and knowledge of the project itself, since it is not usual for the consultant to know so much about the company. Your high professional and human level makes me recommend you without any doubt.

    Diana Arias

  • Thank you very much for accompanying me with such professionalism and empathy in these important moments of my professional life. Thank you for helping me reflect and see in a positive and realistic way the amount of opportunities that arise as a result of change. Thank you for accompanying me and for recommending me to your own networking in such an individualized way... and above all, thanks for making me see and value my own abilities to achieve the challenges and professional goals. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
