Global Project Solutions was established in response to the challenges we see, not only those happening now, but the ones companies will be facing in the future. Within the global energy and infrastructure sectors, companies are already competing fiercely for workers with scarce skills. Those with innovative and deliberate recruitment plans in place for attracting engineers through to middle managers, then focusing on retaining and developing them to become future leaders, will hold a major competitive advantage.
As our current leaders and entrepreneurs retire, we must identify now who will supersede them ably. Then there is the challenge of filling the roles created by those promotions. Middle managers will need to start identifying high calibre talent to replace themselves if they are to enable their own rise to the top.
GPS uses the latest research and people technologies, as well as pioneering search, selection and project management tools to recruit highly skilled individuals up to middle management level to deliver the world's most complex projects. By using state-of-the-art search methods to identify and attract the global talent you need, GPS can support you in meeting your clients' requirements on time and to budget. Every project is unique and we will work with you to agree the best strategy for you.
Although the recession has increased the work-seeking population, there is still a major shortage of workers with critical skillsets. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in the size of the contractor workforce. Although many clients advise us they would like to replace contractors with permanent employees, it is a fact and a way of business that we must engage with and use their skills as much as ever. In order to fulfil our partners' needs and obligations to their clients, we must also engage highly skilled contractors and interims (also known as contingent workforces).
New Generation of Leaders
Our new generations of leaders have very different principles, beliefs and ideas with regard to advancement than that of their predecessors. Despite these individuals having radically different views on what is most important to them, businesses that find new and innovative ways to attract and develop these skills and people now will be the ones at the forefront of major, international growth.
