Talks Global Migration with Leading Dubai Recruiters
<p>This week, on 14th January, the team hosted an informative &#8216;HR Roundtable&#8217; event with key recruitment professionals in Dubai. With the help of recruiters from leading agencies in the region, we discussed the future of global migration, the current challenges facing international recruitment and the role that has in remedying these.</p> <p>We set the scene of global migration by using statistics provided by the <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">World Migration Report 2018</a>&nbsp;which illustrated&nbsp;that in 2015, there were 244 million international migrants as a result of various socioeconomic factors. We also highlighted the prevalence of professional migration in Dubai with 88.4% of the UAE&#8217;s population belonging to the ex-pat community. The continual growth of these figures highlights the need for an independent&nbsp;body which verifies professional documents for the purpose of employment background screening.</p> <div class="wp-block-image wp-image-5611 size-large"><figure class="aligncenter size-large"><img decoding="async" loading="lazy" width="1024" height="569" src="" alt="Global Migration" class="wp-image-10081" title="Global Migration" srcset=" 1024w, 300w, 768w, 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /><figcaption>René Seifert, Chief Digital Officer of DataFlow, discussing global migration and employment fraud with leading recruiters in Dubai.</figcaption></figure></div> <p>Our introduction of was met by enthusiasm from our team of event attendees, who were familiar with the challenges of authenticating candidates&#8217; information.
