One of the topics highlighted was the challenge faced by companies in attracting talent, especially due to the difficulty of finding certain professional profiles. One factor influencing this search for international talent is the location of the activity. “Since the pandemic, companies have been competing for talent worldwide,” explained Stéphane Ruiz-Coupeau, who argues that the final decision is influenced by aspects such as “work-life balance, living conditions or prices.”

In this line José Manuel Leceta, pointed out that “international talent is also influenced by the environment in which it is going to work and Malaga is an attractive place”. “Malaga’s ability to attract international talent is fundamental,” confirmed Lucía Medina.

Another key point was the importance of corporate identity, highlighted in the context of teleworking, a modality that has gained relevance due to the pandemic. Despite its advantages, the need to maintain a certain degree of contact between workers and companies to strengthen corporate identity is recognized. “Company culture is also generated in proximity environments,” explained Leceta, stressing the importance of companies not giving up on generating a team culture.
