The April Roundup

Welcome the ABN Resource April round-up! In the first quarter of the 2020 year, we have been working on the incentives to connect exceptional leadership talent with the top downstream oil organizations around the globe. 

Last month, we launched a new website, refreshed our brand, expanded our global reach with new strategic partnerships, and also were briefed on new leadership job opportunities by some leading Lubricants companies.


We are excited to introduce you to our new website. We hope you agree it is a much better user experience and showcases how we can help your business and job search effectively.  Over the past few weeks, our Marketing Manager, Ewa did an excellent job to capture the most important needs of our customers to implement them into the design of the new website.

Staying true to our unique ABN Resource brand, our new design improves navigation and makes it easier to find exactly what you are looking for. The user experience for our candidate and clients reflects our modern, forward-thinking approach to recruitment.

Feel free to explore some of the new features, free tools & guides, easy job application process, and new ways to talk with our recruitment experts. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to book your free consultation by registering your needs below.

Covid19 has brought an atmosphere of extreme uncertainty to many people, their careers, and the organizations they work for. One thing we do know, however, is that worrying about it won’t change the outcome. With VUCA (volatility uncertainty complexity ambiguity) floating around here is a useful reminder of things you can control:

Your beliefs

Your attitude

Your effort

Your thoughts

Your perspective

How honest you are

What books and study you do

How often you exercise

The type of food you eat

The risks you take

How you interpret situations

How kind you are to others

How kind you are to yourself

How often you say “Thank you”

How you express your feelings

Whether you ask for help or not

How often you practice gratitude

How many times you smile

How much time you spend worrying

It has been amazing to see how people adapt and some very interesting questions being asked of the workplace of the future when lockdown lifts. We have seen customers holding global sales events and conferences virtually, families reconnecting with more time at home, less stress with no more bad commutes, and travel. Is the workplace like this because it is necessary? Or is this the start of a new way of work? Time will tell, and we would really appreciate your insights and thoughts via enquiries@abnresource.com.

A Special Thank You!
