Networking ISA Business Cocktail
On May 18, 2023, an exclusive Investment Support Association (ISA) event took place on the beautiful terrace of Business Lease and Colliers on the 22nd floor of Twin City Towers, with an informal and very interesting panel discussion and SARIO could not be absent.

Stanislava Plascencia Lubinová, Senior Consultant of SARIO's Department of Investment Projects, summarized the year 2022 from the perspective of the agency's successful investment projects. Moreover, at the same time, she talked about how SARIO helps in the process of relocating highly qualified workers from third countries to Slovakia and she mentioned SARIO's priorities in the field of foreign investments, such as the support and placement of new investments in the least developed regions of Slovakia or post-investment care.

The discussion panel also hosted Zuzana Rumiz, General Manager ManpowerGroup Slovakia, Stanislav Pagáč, Country Head CTP Invest SK, and Michal Hoško, Director Occupier Services, Colliers International. They talked, among other things, about new trends in the labor market, the so-called green-collar workers, and their future growth in workforce representation. The discussion also focused on employers' requirements for new employees, as well as the post-covid trend of employees preferring a hybrid way of working and their demands (working from home 2-3 days a week, furnishing workspaces with rest areas, the possibility of parking a car or bicycle, etc.). Employers are said to have to deal with these requirements more and more since the number of candidates for each vacant job position is decreasing, so employers will fight among themselves for talent and try to keep their employees, currently almost 60% of employers are struggling with a long-term lack of labor forces.

The discussion was excellently led by Lucia Čišková, Managing Director of Business Lease, and Juraj Caránek, Head of the Corporate Team & Partner PR agency Seesame.
The Investment Support Association (ISA) is an open association of professional companies operating in Slovakia. It provides a wide range of services for investors, at the same time it is a platform for cooperation and networking and it works as a "think-tank" or "support base" for the needs of SARIO. Legal entities at a high professional level who have already achieved demonstrable results in their field and the majority of their activities consist in providing consultancy and other services may become members of ISA.
