In our latest “Insights” publication we are considering the topic of flexible working. What impact has this newfound “freedom” had on our mental health as well as our work performance?
Sal Partners is widely recognised as a leading talent advisory firm which focuses specifically on the tax market.
As the pace of globalisation continues to increase we believe the best talent transcends national boundaries. We search beyond customary channels to find talented professionals who possess the qualities required to help organisations navigate the continually evolving business landscape.
From our offices in Amsterdam & London, we offer both search and recruitment capabilities supporting our clients to attract, on-board and retain the best talent available from across the international tax market.
"Overall I believe flexible working can reduce costs, however, such a shift also raises issues around maintaining a team culture, collaboration, and communication. 2020 will have a prolonged impact on where people work from and subsequently their associated compensation. If someone is able to work remotely, most likely in a lower cost location, the question must be asked - shouldn't they be on a reduced salary?"
“Sal Partners delivered an excellent presentation to the EMEA chapter of our “organization for tax professionals”, focusing on the different aspects to be considered whilst looking for a new position (after e.g. a restructure). Sal Partners did an outstanding job of explaining the current state of employment market, whilst sharing an insight into the various resources available to remain competitive”.
"We engaged Sal Partners on a recent assignment; the team certainly have the qualities you would look for in a search partner. Knowledgeable about the market which they serve, honest and importantly, committed in the pursuit of ensuring the highest levels of customer service. Sal Partners are one of the standout specialists in what is a niche and highly connected market given their network, approach and proven track record at this level”.
“Sal Partners knowledge of the tax market was clear when we met with them to discuss our recent Director appointment. Unlike previous firms we have retained, their experience of focusing specifically on the tax market ensured they presented the strongest of shortlists within a timeframe which served our needs (without the need for an extended research phase). I am yet to experience a process so smooth and efficient, whilst at the same time matching all my expectations”.
“What I appreciated most was Sal Partners ability to question, challenge and support us during our search for a Transfer Pricing Director. The team were able to provide us with a Pan-European overview of the Transfer Pricing population from which we could approach the most appropriate talent, ultimately finding us a great candidate. It was a pleasure partnering with Sal Partners and I would highly recommend them as a specialist within the international tax market. I'm looking forward to working together in the future".
“Patrick is a highly-skilled, resourceful and knowledgeable consultant, who is well connected and committed to finding the best talent. He methodically achieves his objectives through extensive knowledge of the tax market and his great network. A true professional, passionate and a trustworthy recruiter. I would (and do proactively) recommend anyone seeking the service of an expert consultant in this field to contact Sal Partners”.
“Patrick’s knowledge of the tax market, as well as the key issues facing not only the tax profession but also the broader finance function, was evident during a recent seminar I invited him to as a guest speaker. His views on diversity, the role of the tax officer as well as current salary & market trends were greatly appreciated by those who attended. Thank you”.
