This is an interesting topic and one that sits close to the pulse of two businesses that I work with. I am happy to take a call to discuss this with you but here are my initial thoughts on their behalf.
1) have you brought in anyone overseas through the critical worker criteria from INZ – one x yes and one x no
2) Is your business able to find local skilled talents and do you feel the need to hire from someone overseas. Yes both my clients are 100% keen to hire overseas. They struggle to find talent which is holding back the performance of their companies. One has established an cadet academy which they are trying to promote around schools. The other is considering bringing on an academy to bring in school leaver talent
