September 26 OF 2018 from 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM


The ESADE Alumni People Management and Organisation Club is pleased to invite you to its forthcoming talk: “A strategic view of people management from the standpoint of the Randstad CEO.”


In today’s complex and volatile world, companies increasingly regard technology and talent as the cornerstones of their strategic plans.


A company’s ability to attract, develop and engage talent and create a style of leadership that encourages it is crucial for the excellent performance needed to ensure corporate sustainability.


We would like to invite you to this talk by Rodrigo Martin, executive chairman of Randstad Spain and CEO of Randstad in Latin America. On the basis of his long career in this company, Rodrigo will outline his view of the importance of human resources, how corporate culture affects HR management, the new challenges facing this sector, and the rules for organising, motivating, leading and engaging an effective team.
