mind your talent
The international expansion of your business provides many opportunities, such as access to new markets, technology, or capital. Each business has its own unique set of requirements. However, the human resources element is common to them all and plays a crucial role. Globally, and especially in attractive hotspot locations, the pressure on the talent stream continues to grow. Consequently, recruiting and retaining the right talent for your business is a critical factor in the success of your overseas expansion.
Key aspects of establishing new operations abroad include:
- Optimal location selection;
- Access to talent (immediate & long-term);
- Understanding and addressing cultural differences;
Underestimating the human resources element can prove problematic to both the U.S. headquarters and the overseas office and possibly result in the loss of key talent, with a consequential impact on the business.
In terms of Human Resources, overseas expansion requires:
- A clear international talent acquisition strategy;
- Access to the best talent networks in Europe;
- Access to the right talent;
MYT provides turnkey services for talent acquisition tailored to your business, allowing you to hit the ground running with overseas EU operations.
