In 2017 we created a Talent Attraction Management Strategy for South Tyrol, Italy.
This involved analysing the ecosystem, meeting and gathering input from stakeholders, compiling tailored strategic recommendations, budgetting and action planning for the upcoming three years.
We also provided input for their work with stakeholders in key clusters, talent recruitment and events, an international benchmarking with European frontrunners and what services they should focus on.
Armed with the strategy, IDM Südtirol – Alto Adige, the economic development agency of the region, will now reach for new heights and standards when working to improve the attractiveness of the region.
The South Tyrol region
South Tyrol is a real hidden gem, indeed in southern Europe, but at the very north of Italy. It rests between the Alps between Austria and Italy, being a bilingual region (German and Italian) that has managed to make the most of both worlds.
While it registers as a place to spend a holiday, during a warm summer sailing on the lakes or during winter skiing in the mountains, it has had to work hard to become top of mind for talents.
We met with South Tyrol’s economic development agency IDM Südtirol – Alto Adige at our annual TAMEU event in Berlin. A while later we were in sunny Bolzano – with incredible views and bicycle infrastructure in and outside the city – working intensely on their Talent Attraction Management strategy.
Half a year later, South Tyrol is working hard with its stakeholders, stronghold clusters like ICT and automotive industry (were obviously not mentioning tourism here), having carried through recruiting meetings between companies and talents at several career events. They were successful and companies are enthusiastic about the services and plattforms South Tyrol has begun to offer.
Preparations are on their way for South Tyrol to become a true career destination! Check out their talent section here.
