BPO INITIATIVES YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO CURRENTLY:
MarketMakers is working with several partners to improve the information available to both foreign investors interested in locating services operations in B&H and to the customers of service industry exporters. The heart of this work centres on establishing sustainable mechanisms for collecting and calculating factual information, as well as presenting and promoting end-data through appropriate channels.
MarketMakers has already worked in partnership with the Foreign Investors Council (FIC), Foreign Investment Promotion Agency (FIPA), SEEBA/Outsource 2 Europe, Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL), Manpower Group Serbia and Restart (BAFA). MarketMakers also supported establishment of Restart d.o.o.. If your agency wishes to collect and share credible data that presents a business case for service industry investment, please get in touch.
MarketMakers is partnering with both membership associations and alliances of local service industry companies to support the brokering of new contractor-subcontractor relationships with lead service industry companies outside of B&H.
Thus far, MarketMakers has teamed up with Architect Association of B&H in creating and promoting their Archlink platform for reaching out to foreign investors to utilize B&H architects. If you are working in a branch of the services industry and would like to come together with other companies in your sector to profile both your industry and company credentials targeting peer companies outside of B&H, get in touch with us!
MarketMakers is partnering with several companies in different branches of the services industry to offer highly-applied short training courses (e.g. 3 months) that help young people gain skills in high demand on the export market. The courses are offered through new academies within partner companies whereby students are taught by company employees ensuring curricula relevance. Financing plans are commonly available.
If your company works in a knowledge-intensive sector within the services industry and wishes to open a new training academy for young people, you might be eligible for MarketMakers investment. As of now, MarketMakers has supported Walter, inMotion, Austrian Institute and Dizart in running their academies. Get in touch with a business model demonstrating the academy’s financial sustainability and we’ll start talking!
Since early 2018, MarketMakers has been working with law firm CMS-RRH, and research institute CREDI, to create a strong evidence basis for policymakers to discuss service industry friendly amendments to both employment and higher education laws. A wealth of options and ex-ante impact analyses for specific reform scenarios have been generated and are now being shared with stakeholders.
