Private Equity: What's Been Happening & What Can We Learn?
15 March 2012
Meeting Time: 17.00 - 20.00
How has private equity been affected by the recession? Have their HR and Reward models had to change? What can we learn from their practices?
Private equity may not be as visible as it was before the credit crunch but purchases and sales continue. There have been great successes and some notable failures. So what is the view from within the sector? Has the PE model been adapted to secure required returns? Have things changed? What can we learn?
Guided by Lisa Stone and Rolf Deusinger, we considered developments in the private equity sector through the recession, insights into their HR and reward principles, and the potential transferability of private equity practice to listed companies. Perspectives from members with experience in the private equity sector were very welcome in the discussion.
