Simona Dobre, Head of Outsourcing – APT Resources & Services
“I had the opportunity to be in close connection with the Business Service industry in Romania since it’s beginning, which opened the way to being in a position to define, built and grow at an exponential rate. Though this process I was lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from the best in class experts that were extremely supportive in sharing their expertise. Since then I have been in the position to take part in complex organizational changes orchestrating both operational and communication management processes.
Even though the complex organizational changes were challenging at the time, they proved to be the most valuable and enriching experiences, showing us that magic really happens outside our comfort zone! In order to navigate this industry, the most important 5 skills would have to be: drive, focus, adaptability, empathy and last but not least listening.
The Business Service industry in Romania will continue to grow in size and complexity in the following years being one of the most effervescent industries with limitless career opportunities for all level of expertise. In order to support the ever-growing business needs, it would need to be focused on human resources and digitalization, while decision agility will be an important trait of companies that will allow them to adapt in real time to the constant market changes and thus gain a competitive advantage.”
