Consultants from executive recruitment company Monroe Consulting Group Indonesia’s Consumer Goods Division were provided with an insider’s knowledge about recruiting and hiring the best sales executives in FMCG.
Indonesian sales legend Iwan Himawansah, who currently serves as Sales Director with skin-care company Beiersdorf Indonesia, visited the executive recruitment company’s offices in Jakarta for an information-sharing session that covered a wide range of topics, including recruitment, sales and human resources.
International award-winning Monroe Indonesia, which also operates Health, Industrial, Technology and Professional recruitment divisions, regularly holds sharing sessions with leading executives to ensure that recruitment consultants remain up-do-date with industry trends and developments.
Monroe Indonesia Assistant Country Manager Andreas Saputra, who heads the highly regarded Consumer Goods Division, said it was “super useful” for his team of recruitment consultants “to have real-life experiences interacting and gaining new knowledge from the best sources in the market.”
“Our information-sharing session experiences are invaluable for a number of reasons, including essential insights about the consumer goods industry in Indonesia,” Mr Saputra said.
“With Pak Iwan, he was able to share a lot of inside information about the recruitment of the best sales people in the market, which companies operating in Indonesia need to build sales, increase market share and make more money.”
Mr Saputra said Iwan provided the executive recruitment consultants with an engaging sales presentation, including a comprehensive overview of the sales process.
He said Iwan said it was vital that companies, both multinational and national companies, were constantly updating their sales strategies in fiercely competitive markets, including the skin-care category.
