Related to "resilient attitudes"

Description:

My journey with this wonderful sector started in the year 2004 and it has been a reputable 16 years. An experience of working in both Domestic and International markets has increased my reach to connect with people beyond the borders and nationalities. This has been an enlightening experience as has broadened my knowledge of various sectors, countries and skillsets. 

Often ‘soft skills’, such as the ability to communicate effectively, manage your own time and succeed under pressure are the most valuable. Recruitment is a people-focused career, so being able to build rapport and establish strong relationships is essential. It's also worth noting that the industry’s fast-paced and competitive atmosphere demands individuals with resilient attitudes - with targets to hit, phone calls to be made and candidates receiving counter offers at the last minute - having a positive mindset and strong-will to carry on is vital. 

Last but not the least the impact you can have is extremely rewarding. Whether it is finding someone their dream job or helping a client hire the perfect person to grow their business, recruiters have a huge impact on people’s lives. I still get the same buzz of excitement placing someone in a job now as I when I began my recruitment career.

Overview

The manufacturing industries in Nigeria is an economic sector that brings approximately 10 percent of total GDP (Gross Domestic Product) each year. Manufacturing activity is concentrated in large cities like Lagos, Port Harcourt, and Ibadan, in the south of the country. Millions of people are involved in producing household goods, consumer products, automobiles, agriculture, mining, cement and building materials etc. The Nigerian manufacturing sector is dominated by the production of cement and building materials, food and beverages, tobacco, chemicals and fertilizers, wood, and textiles. Out of all only 3 subsectors (food & beverage, cement, and textile) account for 77% of manufacturing output generating the greatest value. Also, breweries and flour mills contribute well in the manufacturing sector. 

Performance of the sector

The Nigerian manufacturing sector has been performing well in recent years as compared to previous years. The incentives by the government are also beginning to encourage greater interest, to encourage more output in manufacturing sector the government has been making it cheaper for consumers to purchase locally manufactured goods, making the foreign alternatives prohibitively expensive or totally unavailable through import bans, facilitation of cheaper funding, discriminatory foreign exchange policies, and so on.

Challenges

Manufacturing in Nigeria is beset with quite a few challenges, chief among them is power supply, most firms rely on “emergency” power generators to run seamless operations eventually adding to costs. The country’s physical infrastructural deficiencies are also a major constraint, difficult access to credit, and the cost of imported raw materials and skilled labor being the additional challenges. 

Current Scenario

The global supply chain has been deeply disrupted as China, which is the second largest economy in the world, is a major supplier of inputs for manufacturing companies around the world, Nigeria inclusive. Many manufacturers and service providers in the country are already experiencing acute shortage of raw materials and intermediate inputs. This has implications for capacity utilization, employment generation and retention and adequacy of products’ supply to the domestic market.

Future of manufacturing in Nigeria post COVID19 pandemic

The COVID19 pandemic has already accelerated several consumer trends, what most of us consider normal has already fundamentally shifted. Manufacturers in Nigeria who would understand and act on this new normal will have ample opportunities for growth. The COVID-19 pandemic hit manufacturers in an unexpected and unprecedented way. For the first time in modern Nigerian manufacturing history, demand, supply, and workforce availability are affected globally at the same time. Only those companies that provide and deliver vital goods like personal care, FMCG, beverages, paper and pharmaceutical etc. are struggling to meet demand driven by panic buying while other manufacturers of non-essential items are experiencing dramatic drops in demand and extreme pressure to cut operational costs.

Those countries which were dependent on offshore supplies for basic needs are now seeing the downside. Now, Governments are almost certain to use domestic manufacturing as part of their plan to build up strategic resilience in the aftermath of the current crisis. Hence, there will be ample of opportunities for the people willing to work into manufacturing sector and Nigeria indeed has the population and human capital capabilities. Beyond population, Nigeria needs a critical ingredient to make use of the chance to succeed presented by this pandemic.

Anticipated trends to the industry

Automation will be a key component of the effort to revive domestic manufacturing. Automated manufacturing will not only bring back demand for low-skilled labor but will create many new jobs and opportunities for digitally savvy workers.

Learning from the current manufacturing scenario, manufacturing sector will be undergoing new trends like a more elastic workforce, digitally enabled workplace, differentiated supply chains by customer segment, resilient and distributed IT infrastructure/ systems, more digital channels, and E-commerce platforms.

Asian markets are delivering growth three times that of the developed world and that is predicted to continue – and valuations are “reasonable and attractive relative to the rest of the world”.

The key drivers of economic growth in Asia: Increasing consumption driven by rising wealth and consumer spending; A wide range of world-class tech companies; Infrastructure growth driven largely by increasing urbanization; Increasing inter-regional trade, which has benefited from the reduction and removal of tariffs. Asia’s biggest trading partner is now itself. The middle class has grown substantially and is still growing – and this is where the action happens in terms of consumption

The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) – dominated by Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand – which has formed an effective 10-country trade bloc and is now the world’s sixth largest economy with 8 percent of the global population.

Last January, the World Bank released its Global Economic Prospects report indicating that the Philippines is the fastest-growing economy in ASEAN and is expected to sustain its robust economic growth for the next years. It also topped the US News’ list of best countries to invest in the world.

Vietnam has enjoyed strong economic growth. Since 1990, Vietnam’s GDP per capita growth has been among the fastest in the world, averaging 6.4 percent a year in the 2000s. Despite uncertainties in the global environment, Vietnam’s economy remains resilient. It has set its sights on becoming a developed nation by 2020.

Indonesia: The statistic shows the growth in real GDP in Indonesia from between 2012 to 2016, with projections up until 2022. In 2016, Indonesia’s real gross domestic product grew by around 5.02 percent compared to the previous year.



While Singapore and Malaysia are both mature markets which are extremely fast moving and competitive – Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Thailand, are relatively young, emerging markets, where there is great potential for growth. Relative to Singapore and Malaysia, these are large markets which are experiencing high growth with little competition.

Employers are increasingly keen to hire the right candidate; hence the recruitment process for senior and mid management role has lengthened with more interview rounds being thrown in, hiring experts said.

In recent times, in spite of several rounds of interviews, many organizations across different industry sectors have been unable to take a decision to close a position.

While CXO-level candidates always had to face multiple rounds, now even mid- and upper mid-level candidates are going through multiple interview rounds. This could be due to the fact that middle management plays a key role in enabling objectives; organisations are including additional personal interactions apart from line manager and HR discussions for these levels.

Companies are being cautious but at the same time don’t want to lose good candidates so, they keep them engaged by having multiple rounds of interviews. Also, risk is minimised when multiple people review the same candidate.

Companies want to play safe, hence the trend is to evaluate the maximum possible number of candidates available within a domain and sector before selecting the top two or three, and hiring the best among them.

Many companies realise that to identify a candidate who can perform to a role aligned with the specific company's goals and culture multiple interview rounds are required. This could be to get a diversified feedback, and in-depth scrutiny through various scientific assessments are attempts to lower the risk of poor judgement, to avoid hiring costs due Skill deficit non-performance.

Organisation are well aware of the consequences of making a wrong hire; that could range from Financial implications, decrease in employee morale to attrition among high performers.

Multiple meetings and interview rounds with multiple stakeholders give a better insight on the candidate suitability from an alignment and fitment perspective, cultural alignment and skill sets. Companies are finding that it is worth investing the additional effort and time in finding the 'right' person for the job and not just one available 'right-now’.

Considering employers in India are getting more competitive, multiple selection rounds are required to tap aggressive learners, innovative and flexible minds. Workforce dynamics are undergoing worldwide upheaval. Rapidly evolving technologies, business models, demographics, and workplace attitudes are triggering a tidal wave of change which is the major reason to why employers are taking longer than before in finalising the candidates. 

Multiple rounds are also aimed at checking few important personality traits of the candidates, such as the ability to handle conflicts, emotional stability, intent of the candidate according to the patience shown during the interview and decisiveness. Today, recruiters are increasingly looking for well-rounded candidates — those having the necessary technical skills complemented with important soft skills. Most of the jobs, or roles, which need the biggest amount of change, are in the technology, fast-moving consumer goods, banking & finance, infrastructure, and telecom sectors.
