“International Mobility - Shifts on EU Markets” – a new white paper by Gi Group

Milan, Italy – April 8th, 2024

Gi Group, the core business brand of Gi Group Holding, has published a new white paper centred around international job mobility in the present socio-economic scenario.
With a focus on the European markets, the white paper outlines the current framework for job mobility across borders, delving into the shifts of migration trends, the increasingly stricter norms that regulate worker mobility beyond countries’ borders and the growing relevance of return migration.

In such context, the white paper highlights the key origin and destination countries, the most required job profiles and priority industries, comparing the market outlook to Gi Group’s observations as one of the few players in the international job mobility arena. Finally, it explains how Gi Group, through its MoveUp solution, works alongside clients and candidates by managing a wide range of tasks concerning international mobility and workers’ integration, thus leading to better performance and productivity for companies.

From the analysis, sizable opportunities emerge for workers, companies and institutions. Workers have the chance to move to foreign countries, thereby enjoying better working and economic conditions.
In turn, companies in destination countries respond to local skill shortages through a motivated international workforce. At the same time, origin countries may improve the qualifications and expertise of their original talent as those who return enhance the skills pool thanks to their experiences abroad – in this sense international mobility becomes a true upskilling engine, generating new value in the country of origin’s society.

Ultimately, international job mobility emerges as a circular socio-economic model, able to bring value for all stakeholders involved in the ecosystem.

Gi Group, as the core business of Gi Group Holding, remains committed to supporting more fluid, practical worker mobility across EU markets. While economic uncertainty and the impacts of regional conflicts have increased inbound worker-mover flows during the past year, efforts need to be made to find an acceptable happy medium for sourcing jobs domestically and through inflows of qualified, specialised workers who can fill skills gaps. Through our association with the WEC and in consultatory work with EU bodies, Gi Group is committed to ensuring we make this happen.
