Irina offered the participants of the conference to discuss how to operate business under the conditions of staff shortage due to skilled employees relocation and general lack of manpower

Irina mentioned that business started to resolve the problem of staff shortage by maintaining contacts with prospective candidates and using civil contracts and hiring self-employed and retiring workers as an alternative.
