FMCG/CPG

Over the last decades, global consumer behaviors and purchasing criteria have developed common traits and lost some of the nationalistic distinction. This has driven consumer and retail organizations to balance global branding with local market differentiation, where price, margin, supply chain, innovation and investment need to be carefully planned and managed. These are the key parameters for success and the people agenda has never been as vital to support this.

Internationalization, global brands, low cost sourcing and flexibility to market are driving a new wave of employee skills for the FMCG/CPG organizations and only the smart organizations that recognize this and act accordingly will survive in the global market place.
