How British companies can attract talent outside of the UK after Brexit


Almost a year after United Kingdom’s definitive exit from the EU, the procedures and routines used by British companies have been forced to change.

The new laws on immigration have contributed for difficulties to arise when hiring foreign employees. Or simply when maintaining those who used to be part of the company.

One out of every four British companies admit difficulties in hiring since Brexit. Moreover, the current crisis with exports, that is affecting even supplies of food and gas, might get bigger; experts are starting to predict that the lack of low qualified workers could extend to more qualified sectors.

A crucial moment to attract foreign talent

Even though the situation is hard to handle for many companies, there are ways to avoid the potential damages. After the pandemic, remote working has been stablished, or at least tried, by many companies.

Thus, it is easier for the businesses which weren’t used to it before 2020, to adapt to its difficulties. And even easier if they get help from a trusted partner.

For this reason, it’s possible to overcome the obstacles that make it harder to hire EU employees if they have to live in the UK; while, at the same time, discovering new talent abroad.
