How to stimulate the able-bodied population to stay in the country is a question that is being considered by Origin Europe, which is organizing a global IFTDO conference ‘Human Resources Development in the Era of Digital Transformation’ from June 24 to 26 in Sarajevo.
Valentin Ilievski, Vice President of the Messer Group for Southeast Europe, who is also one of the panelists at the conference, spoke about how successful companies operating in this country overcome these shortcomings.
With the exception of political instability in BiH, due to which we are losing potential investors, but also labor, what could improve these economic indicators?
Ilievski: Digitalization and technological progress are the main drivers of economic growth, and they are very important for the development of companies and their long-term successful business. In addition, knowledge transfer and access to information are very important. Greater investment in education has been shown to reduce the unemployment rate and affect economic growth as seen in the examples of many economically strong countries. That’s the key.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, MESSER is one of the largest foreign investors, which, in its 20 years of existence in this market, has invested more than 100 million KM, built two factories, three companies, all in accordance with modern world trends in the application of new technologies. . What is the secret of success?
Ilievski: At Messer, we invest not only in the transfer of high technologies but also in the continuing education of our employees in all sectors.
We organize more than 50 webinars (web seminars) per year worldwide, through which our employees on line they can learn about new technologies, but also master some new methods of more successful business. Thus, we increase our competitiveness and ensure the long-term development of our company in the world.
When a company is able to follow trends, improve business and create added value then we have a secure future. That is why we need to invest in human resources, because people are the ones who are trained to achieve the set business goals.
