How to achieve a solid culture of work?

The plenary session of the recently held People in Shared Services and Outsourcing Forum brought together the industry stakeholders and the authorities in an open dialogue panel, with the aim at identifying the steps to be done towards a more efficient cooperation.

The topics tackled within this session referred to key human capital trends, opportunities, challenges and solutions, Authorities' and associations' steps to support the industry's human capital necessities, HR, the engine for growth and critical determinants on reaching the industry's potential and The power of corporates and universities combined.

For yet so many years, every actor involved in the work environment, either be Governmental representatives, company's managers and employees, refers to the particularities of work culture in Romania. Studies say that Romanians are taking their jobs seriously and generally work more than the normal working program. The work in Romania is subject of specific legislation very similar with other European countries. They are open to foreigners and treat them as professionals if they are coming from countries with best practices and expertise in the area. They respect the foreigners for their skills not for their origins or titles. Hence, the Romanians show a solid democracy level when it comes to work.

Romanian employees' mindset is seen as a benefit of labor force market for companies, but state incentives would be also more than welcome in order to stimulate the hiring and work mobility in Romania – which is at a lower level compared to peer countries. According to Raluca Andreea Popa, Advisor Invest Romania, one of the panelists of the Forum's first session, "at district level, companies and labor market authorities should prepare and deliver trainings for professional reconversion. I work with students and, if in the past years, I was disappointed by their lack of willingness to develop new skills, now, I see a solid evolution in their mindset, they are more active and dedicated in academic curricula and extra curricula activities. Also, there is an increase in the partnerships between universities and private companies for a common exchange of know-how and training projects.". Popa's opinion is underlined also by the students' confidence in building a career in Romania, where there is a larger ground for developing skills on a more diversified market, on industry's niches, where there is space to explore and more potential compared to already saturated markets.

The downsize, as stated by Raluca Andreea Popa, is that there is a real challenge in stimulating the potential of the young, since they, by nature, are averse to risk, not willing to take any chances. "They like to comply in execution tasks, don't accept risk, they need to learn how to manage. This is the biggest challenge if we want to change their mindset. The aversion to risk is more common in Romania compared to other countries. With the eyes on the future which is have a very strong component of technology, their skills should focus on this, besides the necessary soft skills, to complement the technical competencies. Learning new languages is also a manner to develop a complete set of competencies for the future," Raluca Andreea Popa said.

Raluca Andreea Popa is a Lecturer at Bucharest University of Economic Studies and Senior Consultant Expert Evaluator and Title Advisor at Ministry for Business, Trade and Entrepreneurship since 2017. She holds strong expertise in teaching microeconomics, macroeconomics, intermediary miicroeconomics, Industrial Economics;
