Congress: Internationalization of the labor market

Information

The labor market is becoming increasingly international. Due to current shortages and shortages, employers are looking across borders for staff. The arrival of international workers brings with it new issues. Challenges in areas such as housing and integration, but also more broadly such as education. The internationalization of the labor market is inevitable, the question is how to respond to it.

Our chairman for the day, Dr. Steven van Eijck, will give a brief introduction of the speakers and the topics to be addressed today.

Openingskeynote by Monique Kremer - Labor migration that is good for everyone
10:10 - 10:45

That labor migration works out well for people themselves and our economy is no longer self-evident. The Migration Advisory Council advocates revising labor market policy and starting from a broad welfare approach. What does that entail? What is needed from government, employers and workers for this to succeed?

Keynote by Frank van Gool - Circular Labor Migration
10:45 - 11:20
Keynote by Frank van Gool - Circular Labor Migration
10:45 - 11:20

Labor migration is entering a new phase. The labor reserve in the traditional European recruitment countries is running out. There, too, the aging population is hitting hard. Labor migration from outside the European Union is increasingly coming into the picture. But different rules apply. Because of the laws and regulations, it must be a regulated process, in which job specifications are carefully examined and return to the country of origin is also emphatically in the picture. In short, the keywords are: regulated, functional and circular.

Breakout Outline your roadmap of international recruitment by Intelligence Group
14:00 - 14:45

What is a big recruitment issue by Dutch standards is mostly small by international standards. This is good news on the one hand, but on the other hand it also makes the choice big. Where do you start? In which country, region, city or campus? In which language, through which recruitment channels and with which terms of employment and (international) motives for movement? And do you recruit to bring people to the Netherlands or do you want to recruit for abroad? And what about legislation and contracts? During this workshop by Intelligence Group we will discuss the answers to these questions.... The session is given by Geert-Jan Waasdorp, CEO of Intelligence Group

15:15 - 16:00

Philosophizing is a training in perspectival agility. It helps you to rise outside your own tunnel vision and take in new points of view. How can this help us in the field of labor market internationalization? During this interactive lecture, philosopher Lammert Kamphuis takes us through refreshing philosophical tips and techniques. For example, he provides an exercise to increase our lack of judgment and broaden our view. He challenges us to incorporate more playful elements into the challenges we face. And he comes up with unorthodox advice to unlock a lot of energy and creativity in our work. Be surprised by this accessible way of philosophizing and get back to work refreshed!

Breakout International education in the Netherlands by B&T and Decisio

Breakout International education in the Netherlands by B&T and Decisio
13:00 - 13:45

The availability of good education for school-age children is one of the main motives for international workers to settle somewhere. Fortunately, the Netherlands has an ample supply of quality education. And for internationals, there are all sorts of "flavors" to choose from. But precisely this wide choice can sometimes make things a little less clear. In this workshop, B&T and Decisio will show which varieties of international education there are in the Netherlands and what the relevant choice motives might be. We will discuss some recent research into the wishes and needs of internationals in the field of international and internationalizing education. We link this to the existing supply and the changes therein and discuss the question to what extent supply and demand are currently well matched. The workshop will be facilitated by Jos van Elderen, Florence Luger and Daan van Gent. Jos and Florence are consultants at B&T organisatieadvies, a consultancy that provides services to educational organizations in the Netherlands. Daan works at economic research and consulting firm Decisio. Jos and Florence both have consultancy to and about international education in their portfolio. Not from an educational perspective but from a managerial-strategic one. Both advise to and about different forms of international education in the Netherlands, to 'real' international schools, to bilingual schools, to internationalized Dutch schools.

Breakout The labor market is internationalizing, but adequate housing lags behind by Decisio and Companen
14:00 - 14:45

This session will be hosted by Gerwin van der Meulen of Decisio and Ellen Ootes of Companen For years, employers have been seeking refuge abroad to obtain sufficient manpower. However, this international labor market requires housing that matches. The housing market often does not adequately meet the flexible demand of migrant workers and the shortages are great. Thus, abuses lurk. The great pressure on the entire housing market makes it more difficult to get housing for labor migrants in order. There is a lot of demand for temporary housing that municipalities find difficult to meet. For example, because the housing supply is insufficient or difficult to find, but also because there is little understanding of demand. In addition, a sharp-edged policy framework to adequately anticipate the rising demand for housing for international labor migrants is often lacking. Warm contacts between industry and governments are often lacking, resulting in valuable exchange being missed. Who is responsible and who is involved? In addition, of course, the main question is: How do we tackle this?
