Recruitment Team & Retail & Consumer Products

Recruitment & Headhunting in Retail and Consumer Goods Markets

Retail trade and consumer products have a relatively large workforce. It is characteristic of the sector that the so-called performing workforce is very fast-moving, often changing, and tied to shifting schedules. In such cases, temporary employment agencies often assist companies in managing and coordinating the necessary workforce.

Managerial and expert-level personnel are traditionally well-trained, and well-known brands often receive numerous open applications from graduates of higher education institutions. The dynamics of labor mobility in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and durable goods companies are linked to economic cycles, as the trade in durable goods can be very cyclical.

Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy & Recruitment Team

Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy, specializing in care facility construction, is a growth company currently seeking several new experts with the help of Rekrytointitalli and is developing its entire recruitment process with the partner's guidance. Collaboration has proven beneficial in an industry where competition for top talents is fierce.

Founded in 2018, Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy delivers rentable well-being facilities on a turnkey basis. Employing 20 people, Sievi Hyvinvointitilat is part of the Sievi Group conglomerate. The entire group employs 120 people and completes 150 construction projects annually, including residences, small houses, care facilities, group homes, and daycare centers.

The business of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat is on the rise, indicating a need for new leaders within the construction company. In their search, the company relies on the expertise of Rekrytointitalli. The collaboration between Sievi Hyvinvointitilat and Rekrytointitalli began in the winter of 2021 when they recruited a sales manager. Now, they are in search of more experts.

"It is extremely important that we find the most suitable employees. It's not just about subject matter expertise but also about personality and the drive to succeed," says Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy.

In the field of care facility construction, Sievi Hyvinvointitilat is an active partner.

"The majority of our projects are completed within a year, including all permits and paperwork," says CEO Pauli-Pekka Österberg.

The company expects the same agility from its recruitment partner. Österberg describes Rekrytointitalli's work as efficient and of high quality.

"Their approach works. Rekrytointitalli's method is thorough and meticulous, and their initial recruitment work is of high quality. They invest a lot of time-consuming work, including reviewing applications and CVs, checking references, and conducting initial interviews. This allows us to fully devote our time to our core activities," Österberg explains.

"There is a much greater risk that we would recruit with limited resources or inadequate expertise than if a professional manages the recruitment," says Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy.

A high-quality recruitment process eases the discovery of the most suitable experts and saves time spent on recruitment, according to Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy.

"A recruitment partner has seen many different applicants. They know how to manage the recruitment process in such a way that everyone involved has a positive experience," Österberg says.

"Recruitment alongside our regular work requires quite a bit of time. Realistic scheduling is crucial. We need to respect the applicants' time and communicate with them promptly and effectively," Österberg points out.

Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy is currently seeking several new experts with the assistance of Rekrytointitalli and is developing its entire recruitment process with the partner's guidance. Sievi Group subsidiary, Sievi Asunnot Oy, has also begun collaborating with Rekrytointitalli.

"A long-term recruitment partnership can help clarify and improve the company's entire business,"

"We have a vast amount of expertise and a well-honed process for developing care projects from planning to production. Ultimately, the people we employ determine the development of our business: the types of experts and leaders working for us. Individuals make crucial decisions in various everyday situations and create a positive atmosphere around them," emphasizes Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat.

Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy is a modern, low-hierarchy workplace where strong teamwork is built on skilled experts and responsible leaders.

"Each of our experts has their own job title, but we are very open and engage in active discussions with each other. Our employees are self-directed, responsible, and conscientious. This is the working style we want to support, and we have the tools for it," says CEO Pauli-Pekka Österberg.

"Team support is just one click away. Whether the focus is on sales, planning, or production, everyone is on an equal footing in our company, and all perspectives are taken into account," Österberg says.

A long-term recruitment partnership can help clarify and improve the company's entire business, according to Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat.

"Every recruitment builds the employer's image. It's important to remember that when you're looking for one employee, dozens of good applicants are left unselected. It's really important that each individual is genuinely met and well taken care of," Österberg says.

Employees are investments in the future, Österberg says. These investments should be nurtured.

"We want our employees and job applicants to feel valued and that the things we write in our job advertisements are genuinely implemented in our company. I consider it important that we, as a company, fulfill the promises we make," Österberg says.

This is also important for the recruitment partner.

"It's important to us who we work with. We want job applicants to trust that our clients are good employers," says Elina Liikka, Recruitment Consultant at Rekrytointitalli.

"It's a privilege to carry out recruitments for a company that values its employees highly and gives them every opportunity to succeed in their work," Liikka emphasizes.

A professionally led recruitment minimizes risks

"Based on our experience, I would say that there is a much greater risk that we would recruit with limited resources or inadequate expertise than if a professional manages the recruitment," says Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat Oy.

"Despite outsourcing, we interview the most suitable candidates and make the final selections. Rekrytointitalli's thorough groundwork and investigations greatly assist in decision-making," Österberg says.

Sievi Hyvinvointitilat and Rekrytointitalli have successfully carried out recruitments together in an industry where competition for the best experts is fierce.

"The better we know each other and each other's ways of working, the more high-quality service we can provide to each other. This undoubtedly resonates with those seeking employment with us and those working for us," says Pauli-Pekka Österberg, CEO of Sievi Hyvinvointitilat.

"I believe that Rekrytointitalli is an excellent partner for small and medium-sized construction companies – and even larger ones!"
