The project Moving Global Talent is brought into the world to help companies in Southern Denmark to find, onboard and retain the international talent that industries are missing.
The project partners are 17 companies from different industries, the robot cluster in Odense and 12 municipalities in Southern Denmark. The goal is to put the companies and the robot cluster on the global map and provide the right framework for onboarding and retention of global talents.
The project focuses on sourcing talent from countries where there is a surplus of expertise and a lack of jobs. We aim to attract talent from these areas to the companies in Southern Denmark that have a corresponding shortage of talent with similar qualifications. We do this based on thorough research in accordance with the urgent needs of the companies.
Close contact with the companies
Our Global Onboarding Specialists and Talent Attraction Manager keep close contact with the 16 test companies and firms in the robot cluster, Odense Robotics. We develop methods and tools together with the companies and match the needs of the individual company regarding pre- and onboarding. Furthermore, we create a framework to motivate international employees to stay in the long term.
The project lasts from August 2018 to August 2021 and has a budget of 23 mill DKK. Of this amount, 11.4 mill DKK (50 %) has been allocated by the European Social Fund and 5.7 mill DKK (25 %) through local funding from the Southern Denmark Growth Forum.
