Franco Azzopardi Recruitment and Inflation

Where is this coming from? What is this the result of? Is it only the result of the global pandemic that has hit several businesses quite hard over the past two years? And if so, what have people’s priorities become in this new day and age?

Taking to social media, Franco Azzopardi, CEO of Express Trailers, has shared his thoughts on the issues that companies are facing when looking for new talent to join their organisation. In his post, he asks a number of rhetorical questions which, pretty much every recruiter on the island is trying to come to terms with.

“Central Banks are jacking up interest rates to slow down inflation which would probably put weight on the economy (and hopefully not, higher unemployment)”, he adds. This leads Mr Azzopardi to question the sustainability of the pressures of trying to keep up with a work-life balance, which seems to have become so important to employees across the board over the past two years.

“Something is probably bound to spin out of control. Should we look harder at other forms of quality in life, like corporate purpose, fairness, equality, empowerment, stakeholder capitalism… could this be a less costly strategy of renegotiation?”, he concluded.
