Olivier Campenon – President Franco-British Chamber of Commerce
The 7th edition of the Hays luncheon organised with the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce has been a success as voiced by many participants. This year again, Alistair Cox did a splendid presentation of the Global Skills Index report issued for 2016. And this year is definitely very special due to the recent events in the UK and in the US. Alistair answered very openly and brightly to the many questions of the audience, mostly senior executives of large international companies, of which many are members of the Economic Circle of the Franco-British chamber.
It is impossible to summarise such a rich discussion though two points stood out particularly: the ongoing shortage of talents and skills which might impact future growth and the limited effect of the Brexit announcement on recruitment and recruitment plans, at least at this stage.
The economic evolutions in the coming months are difficult to predict and it was a real pleasure to get some light from Alistair. Many thanks again to him and to the entire Hays team!
