Business service centres (BSCs) send out mixed messages when asked whether they need the Slovak labour market to be more open to migrants from abroad. Some of the BSC leaders stress that employing foreigners is not their priority and that, as long as they can find sufficient talent among Slovaks, talk about foreign workers should be marginal.
But others say employing foreigners is not just about filling the gaps in the local labour force. They talk about the need to create and maintain an international environment, in which diversity is one of the leading values.
Despite their differences on this, managers do agree that in order for Slovakia to stay competitive, the government needs to make sure foreign businesses do not face insurmountable obstacles when trying to enrich their labour force with workers from abroad.
