Recognizing that labor shortage challenges are severely affecting the business and investment climate in Latvia, AmCham conducted a survey about Latvia's labor market and attraction of talent. The goal of the survey was to collect our members' opinion on labor market challenges and their experience in attracting and retaining talent.
As the result of the survey two priority areas were highlighted:1) Promoting Latvia as an international career destination and
2) Developing skills to reduce labor market mismatch.
The survey reveals how company executives perceive current employment issues, what they are doing to attract and retain talent and what should be done to promote Latvia as a career destination.
The main findings together with specific hands-on recommendations will be communicated to various stakeholders, including policy-makers and media during a launch event in the next weeks. The aim of the recommendations will be to address the attraction and retention of talent, which would enable strengthening Latvia's productivity and competitiveness.
We are grateful to our member ERDA for helping conduct this survey.
AmCham is based on values and behaviors that enable its members to fulfill a common purpose - a sustainable and transparent business environment, and we are truly proud to be a part of this growing community.
