Implying an International Strategic Recruitment and Its Impact on Local Workers


The close relationship among economic change, recruitment strategies and its impact on local workers whether they are highly skilled or not is showed and explained in this article. Population aging, the rising demand for talent in emerging economies and increasing cross-border employment opportunities is what drives global demand for highly skilled workers which are all intensifying the competition for talent. The variety of policies and practices reflecting corporation’s goals in the absence of an international consensus on global policy frameworks and national governments and values is discussed in this chapter. The supply and demand factors converge in the selection of foreign skills which is the trend in national recruitment strategies and shows clearly in the direction of hybrid arrangements and values migrants’ long-term contributions to the receiving country through the supply-driven point’s system values. The abilitiesy of migrants to fill labor shortages are emphasized by demand driven systems to fill labor shortages.
