Technology Opens Door to HR OpportunitiesBy Gabriela Mastache | Wed, 04/01/2020 - 12:23
The implementation of new technologies will generate new business and employment opportunities for the general population, says Eduardo Rosenberg, Director General of Grupo RO. “Although many sectors are impacted by the uncertainty in the country, we believe IT and telecom projects will continue, especially with everything that is coming in terms of digitalization, Industry 4.0 and 5G implementations. These are processes that cannot be stopped.”
Grupo RO, a Mexican conglomerate of seven different business units specialized in several segments of the economy, such as construction and infrastructure, legal services and human resources, is undergoing a transformation process to provide better services in light of the new regulations implemented in the country and the changing needs of the business world. “It is a matter of being constantly evolving and transforming our business offering,” says Rosenberg.
Although Grupo RO has traditionally focused on legal and sourcing services for other companies, Rosenberg says the group is opting for a change in its business strategy, which entails focusing on areas of the economy that look promising despite the economic or political landscape. The inevitability of technological change has made Grupo RO focus its expertise and efforts on creating an IT and telecom human resources firm. “We have provided sourcing services for technology and telecom companies for over 20 years. We have the human capital expertise to create a company that provides other HR services to technology and telecom companies rather than just sourcing services,” says Rosenberg.
With the help of its legal services branch, Grupo RO plans to offer a comprehensive array of services to its clients. “Companies are looking for different ways to make their human resources department more efficient. They are in the process of reviewing processes and encouraging their employees to become more productive. We can also accompany clients in this process,” says Rosenberg.
Rosenbeg says the group will also replicate its human resources service model in sectors that also require a degree of specialization and are experiencing growth, such as retail, hotel services and insurance. “We will focus on recruitment, selection and training of personnel.”
