)-- “IRC is extremely diligent in pursuing consistent quality standards, client services and business ethics,” says Sylvia MacArthur, President of the IRC Executive Board. “HumanGroup’s broad expertise enhances our global boutique executive search presence in more than 35 countries. HumanGroup’s adherence to exceptional standards of confidentiality, accuracy and urgency – while maintaining essential knowledge and interaction at local levels – matches the IRC ethos. The alliance is passionate about delivering optimal executive search results to our clients.”
Gaye Özcan (pictured) and Mehves Demir, both former HR Managers, founded HumanGroup in 2006, focusing on executive search, selection and assessment, and customized training programs. Other HumanGroup professionals offer expertise in a range of industries and functional areas, and expert trainers develop and deliver training programs.
“At HumanGroup, our key sectoral areas are financial services (including banking, insurance, and pension funds), pharmaceuticals, telecom, FMCG, and energy – in middle to senior management,” explains Gaye. “We also work in healthcare, retail, technology and logistics, and customize our proprietary assessment tools for each client.”
HumanGroup’s clients are primarily large Turkish and international firms, operating across multiple sectors, and expanding regionally and internationally. As Gaye explains: “Many companies want to establish a foothold in Turkey, while many large Turkish companies are developing operations in Europe, the Balkans, Russia, the Middle East, and the US – and looking at China, and South America to some extent.”
She explains that Turkey is also a very unique, specific market. “Challenges include language, the legal structure, the business approach – all of which needs extensive local expertise,“ she adds.
“There are big opportunities here in Turkey – it’s a developing market of 75 million people, and big international companies simply can’t ignore it,” confirms Gaye. “The search market in Turkey is relatively young and developing, and our clients increasingly need candidates with extremely specific and unique skills. Our membership in IRC will considerably enhance HumanGroup’s ability to provide global search services to all clients, and to contribute to IRC’s expanding cross-border executive search services.”
