“Today, Mauritius faces a considerable lack of expertise. For example, in IT, highly specialized skills are required such as software developers, those specialized in programming language such as the Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) and in back end and front end, among others. In short, everything related to technology is a headache for employers who cannot find the skills they want, ” says Thierry Goder. Moreover, several companies are soliciting them, having exhausted all resources, specifies the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Alentaris.
In addition to IT, the digital and hospitality sectors are in deficit of local workforce. “The list of sectors is growing. Besides textiles and manufacturing, agriculture, transport, personal services and medicine lack skills, " said Pradeep Dursun, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Business Mauritius.
