“The team was very helpful at setting forth what we needed to do both to engage employees in Romania and to maintain the employment relationship. Many things, such as the need to have an employee handbook and what to expect from labour authorities, were not obvious to us as foreigners. We really felt like they did more than just execute the task of preparing labour agreements. They helped us understand the Romanian environment and positioned us to deal with its challenges well.”
