Are you trying to attract expats to your company amidst a shortage of skilled nationals? Are you sensing the concepts you have implemented to date seem to be failing you? And is the struggle ongoing to ensure sufficient qualified talent decide to relocate from abroad?
The inability to fill vacancies is counter productive, highly expensive and damaging to success. If a number of your key positions remain open, you are not alone.
Even internationally renowned corporations as well as local champions find themselves in a similar situation. The position and renumeration are excellent, yet applicants choose to go elsewhere. Often the choice is due to location. Since that is not about to change, the image portrayed must.
As one example, to remove obstacles to growth Finland needs to attract literally tens of thousands of skilled workers from abroad. When travelling, I have asked others for their impression of Finland dozens of times. Cold, dark and mosquito infested. That image is counterproductive when requesting expats to relocate.
Mosquitos are nowhere near as widespread as is believed. Furthermore, Finland has hot, 30º summers where nights are as light as day. These facts are more inspiring and thus enable companies to attract more successfully.
The Amazing Capitals concept creates inspiring images whist providing expats all the knowledge they need to help make a positive choice. As well as support them long after relocation.
Invest in your success by creating local online resources for expats in your location and shine a positive light around the world. Let’s investigate the opportunities, a strategic approach in your city, levels of investment required and a unique proposal for you and your company.
