FIDC recently held a workshop with Falkland Islands Chamber of Commerce members to discuss how the organisation could potentially assist businesses with labour force development issues.

The workshop included a review of relevant data from recent Business Climate Surveys, an overview of current FIG Strategies and information on what FIDC has been doing to support employers and the development of the labour force up to this point. An exercise then took place on reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of being an employer in the Falkland Islands followed by a discussion on what steps FIDC could take to assist the private sector and help alleviate recruitment and work force issues in the future. Useful feedback was received on how these support mechanisms could look.

Many thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for their support with the workshop.
