As the voice of international business in Latvia, AmCham constantly interacts with its members in order to identify issues affecting key operations of our member companies. Over the past year our top priority has been addressing a growing labor shortage. Furthermore, attraction and retention of talent, both domestic and international, has been named as one of the main constraints affecting the business and investment climate in Latvia.

Recognizing that labor shortage challenges cannot be tackled by a single stakeholder and resolved by a simple solution, AmCham would like to facilitate a cross-sectoral dialogue among various stakeholders to achieve mutual understanding and engage in a joint action. We would therefore like to ask for our members' feedback regarding Latvia's labor market and ability to attract talent. We encourage executive managers to answer the survey directly with the support from HR managers.

We would very much appreciate it if you could take approximately 10 minutes of time to answer this anonymous survey. 

The results of the survey will be announced as soon as we will have collected about 70% answers of the entire company membership. Your answers will guide us in creating concrete proposals to decision-makers and will help us shape the next discussions about this important topic.

We would like to thank our member ERDA Consulting for supporting the survey!
