What obstacles do you face when recruiting?
Alex Raubitschek, operations director, Advantage Professional (AR):
More people are considering working abroad, especially in countries where taxes are traditionally lower, such as Singapore or Dubai. Tempting HR talent to move against a continuing backdrop of economic uncertainty remains an ongoing challenge for international employers.
Tim Smeaton, CEO, Hydrogen Group (TS):
Corporate growth is predominantly driven by emerging economies. More than ever before, businesses must operate globally to take advantage of this.
Hiring the right people to make international working succeed is a key challenge. Those with overseas experience in senior roles are looked upon more favourably and can command higher salaries. In many locations the available talent pool doesn’t include the skill sets currently in demand.
