The Argentinean professional in systems, sciences and technologies is "good, good and cheap" due to the impact of the peso devaluation on salaries, as well as the online work options for foreign companies, according to different entrepreneurs in the sector.
The CEO of the Everis computing consulting firm, Pablo PereiroHe told the Telam agency that the company has increased its professional factory from 470 at the end of 2017 to 600 employees at the end of last year.
In that sense, he said that "we will continue to lead people, guys who want to pursue a career in technology, we have enough projects, including export." These include developments and services for the banking and industrial sector in Spain and the United States.
The forecast for 2019 is "to increase the permanent plant in Buenos Aires and we may need people in the interior", as in Tucumán.
Regarding the difficulties in finding qualified personnel, he indicated that "demand is greater than supply, not only in the technological area, everything is science or engineering".
Finally, Pereiro stressed that "the devaluation of the peso has caused the Argentine cost to fall and that is why the Argentine professional is now good, good and cheap."
The CEO of Farady Security coincided with this concept, Martin Tartarelli, who clarified that the Argentine professional is "good, good and cheap, but only for outside companies."
"Multinationals demand a lot of talent and put very competitive salaries, which makes it difficult to retain talent in the local context," he added. "On the other hand, there are companies headquartered in the United States," he continued, "which provide dollar wages to employees here, making the scenario more complex."
How much do they pay?
The owner of IT Polo in Buenos Aires, José María Louzao Andrade, said that "the impact of the devaluation of human capital in a recessive context is that companies producing for the domestic market can not retain their most qualified resources."
Louzao, owner of G & L, noted that "more than 10% of the resources work freelance abroad and charge via cards or payment platforms", which leads to "de-financing of solidarity systems".
In this regard, he said that these resources "charge from $ 20 to $ 30 per hour, meaning the salary is $ 120,000 to $ 180,000." If the current pace continues, "the risk is to increase concentration and informality," he said.
"Argentines have a skill profile that makes them very attractive to organizations of different cultures," said Alejandro Servide, director of professionals at Randstad Argentina.
He did not refer to technical skills, but to others such as "versatility, ability to make decisions, creativity in proposed solutions, handling of complex situations, good response in highly demanding environments and, especially, their adaptability to crisis situations."
According to Servide, "the Argentine is resilient by nature" and is sought as an "emergentologist" when operating in uncertain contexts.
He specified that migration today is led by the "young professionals segment, people between the ages of 25 and 30, usually without children," tempted by proposals from abroad that "combine career development with a strong currency salary, and many with follow- terms of housing, car, health plan, among other benefits.
