Session III: Companies in the Globalized World

21 September 2017
Session III focuses on the importance of talent migration for companies today. As the economy has become quickly globalized, companies have also moved towards a more international workforce, and thus, they are a critical stakeholder when it comes to discussing the race for talents. Discussants from both private and public sector organisations address three broad topics:
  • Why are European companies currently looking to attract foreign talents?
  • What should be the role of private sector in attracting and retaining talents?
  • How can public policy in the field of migration support the private sector?
  • Professor Will Harvey, Director of the Business, Institutions and Policy Research Cluster, University of Exeter Business School
  • Jo Antoons, Partner and Practice Leader of Fragomen
  • Jurga McCluskey, Head of Immigration at Deloitte UK
  • Alvar Lumberg, Head of Development of Transferwise
