Financial institutions in emerging countries generally expand their activities gradually. Their staff grows accordingly and, along with this, new issues arise. Management is often at a loss when faced with these new HR management challenges.

Reaching this critical size makes it necessary to put in place effective HR functions that go beyond mere personnel administration. Institutions are often confronted with inadequately-qualified HR Management resources in local markets. Staff capacity building thus requires external technical support.

Each  institutionís HR department must:

  • Assist line management in their daily monitoring of staff, while providing advice and tools
  • Build more complex organisational structures, as the institutionís development progresses, that include several  job grades and skill levels
  • Reinforce compensation policies (salary scale, bonus, and incentives)
  • Manage careers in a long-term perspective, optimizing the evolution of resources and talent
  • Identify key resources thanks to an appropriate process evaluating performance and staff potential

Building an appropriate HR Management team that is capable of meeting such challenges is a key issue for all institutions that wish to continue expanding.
