"Penna is a global HR people management business with an exceptional track record in the HR services industry. We provide talent solutions for over 2000 organisations in more than 70 countries, across many different sectors,from multinational conglomerates to hi-tech start-ups, from large public sector bodies to high-profile non-profits. We passionately believe that it is the people in organisations – from the C-suite to the frontline – that make the difference between average and excellent performance. Our professional experience and expertise spans three areas of organisational life where people have the power to make that difference: • Recruiting the right talent for an organisation; • Developing people to fulfil their potential; • Managing career transitions when staff move on or change career direction. The depth and breadth of our expertise across the entire employee lifecycle means that our clients can obtain an end-to-end service, or draw on our knowledge in any of these areas, as required. For Penna, a successful outcome isn’t just about results. It is about how those results are achieved. We live and work by our values. We are accountable, collaborative, inspiring, and supportive. These are more than words on a piece of paper or a computer screen;they define Penna – who we are and how we operate. Our clients know that they can trust us to do what we say, to use our collective experience and expertise to meet their goals, to work for them and with them as a team, to provide new insights and create new opportunities, to foster an environment where talent can grow, contribute and succeed. We never think of people as cogs in a machine, productive assets, or numbers on a spreadsheet. We see and treat people as individuals, with aspirations and ambitions, abilities and attributes, above all with the potential to improve their performance, and that of their organisation."
