The Federation of Hellenic Enterprises SEV on Thursday unveiled a new digital platform connecting highly skilled specialists with industry and technology companies in an effort to attract talent from Greece and abroad and to support Greek enterprises and startups in finding specialised staff.
Attracting talent, finding highly specialised and experienced people, and connecting them with technology intensive, high-responsibility jobs is a key requirement for business growth.
IG@work is a user-friendly platform which collects quality job openings that are available in industry and tech startups, and connects them with people searching for repatriation opportunities, or simply for their next professional steps in Greece. Interested parties can search professional opportunities among the hundreds of postings on the platform, which already counts more than 400 job postings from 88 companies.
The initiative aims to strengthen companies’ ability to access the people they need, while at the same time, it widens the employment opportunities for the high-level human capital, in Greece and abroad, to work for some of Greece’s largest industries and most dynamic startups.
Marco Veremis, Chair of SEV’s Innovation Committee noted that: In 2020, SEV’s Innovation Committee launched Innovative Greeks in order to mobilise the network of Greeks abroad and bring together inventive and innovative Greeks from all over the world. Today, we further strengthen the endeavour with IG@WORK in an effort to contribute to bringing back those young, capable Greeks who left the country during the economic crisis in search of better employment prospects. These young people stemmed from Greek society’s most productive segment, and the vast majority hold university degrees. Greece’s business community fully supports the initiative, and we firmly believe that it will create much value for all, and especially for innovating Greeks.
Mega Sponsors of the initiative are Coca-Cola HBC and Coca-Cola Hellas, our Sponsors Pharmathen and Athenian Brewery and our Supporters ABB S.A., ELVIAL S.A. Sunlight Group – Energy Storage Systems, Hellas Gold, TITAN Group and RAYCAP S.A.
