  • Sun rising in the global pharmaceutical business

    Demand for generic drugs is expected to soar in the next five years, both in advanced and emerging economies. One Indian drug maker, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, has positioned itself to rise to the occasion with the acquisition of Ranbaxy, another Indian firm which specialises in generics. Sun Pharma will remain the world’s fifth-largest pharmaceutical company, but it will become a contender in the global market, no longer trailing the top four.

  • Car sales revving up in Europe

    Europe’s car market has been on a steady path to recovery, with new industry data showing a seventh straight monthly gain in March. Analysts attribute the rise in sales, based on registrations of new passenger cars, primarily to manufacturers’ incentives and financing deals. Sales were up 10.6% from the same period a year earlier - the largest uptick since a 10.8% increase in March 2010, which was driven largely by “cash-for-clunkers” incentives.

  • HR matters: Is Europe’s workforce shrinking?

    David Fairhurst, Chief People Officer at McDonald’s Europe, warns that unless European employers do more to bring underemployed groups such as young people and older workers into the labour force, the region will suffer negative economic impacts. Some parts of Europe, he said, are already feeling the effects of what he calls a “workforce cliff”, which will become a “serious barrier to economic growth in future”.

    Perfect Digital Leaders and Other Unicorns

    Compared to its peers on the Exec, the role of the CIO has been changing at the speed of light. Let’s not go back to the “dark days” when they were considered overpaid-tecchies, but even in the last three years since the relentless advance of digital and other disruptive technologies, the role has been elevated in the eyes of other business leaders.

    How to Change the Way the Board Perceives You

    For CIO headhunters, exposure to boards is often limited to a distress purchase of a new CIO. Perhaps something along the lines: “this one is broken, can we have another one, please?” It can be rather depressing, taking a briefing from an organisation which clearly sees the CIO as an extra role on the Exec rather than being fundamental to the effective working of the top team.
