Write about the following topic.
Rich countries should allow jobs for skilled and knowledgeable employees who are from poor countries. Do you agree or disagree?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
You should write at least 250 words.
It is believed that developed countries ought to be more accepting employees from poorer countries, who are highly skilled and expert in their fields. I wholeheartedly agree with this suggestion. This essay will put forward two reasons to why these employees should be given opportunity to be a part of rich countries.
Firstly, if companies in developed countries recruit people from their counterparts, the company's workforce will undoubtedly increase culture diversity and equality, which makes employees feel included and help the companies to achieve higher productivity. For example, Melbourne has been recruitting many people from poor countries, such as India and China, because these people are known to be more expert in IT, accounting and finance, which Australian people seem to be lack of such skills.
Secondly, with more skilled and expert employees, these companies will achieve higher work performance as opposed to recruiting local people who have lower skills and expertise. By doing so, organisations will be able to boost their companies' productivity and gain higher profits. In addition, no matter what countries these employees come from, it will not have any negative effect on the success of the companies because they have real knowledge. In many companies in the United States and Australia, for instance, it has been statistically shown that the revenue earned in the last few centuries is becoming increasingly higher compared to the past, when US and Australia workforce consisted of local employees.
To conclude, I entirely support the idea of skilled and knowledgeable employees from poor countries working in richer countries as they bring about culture diversity and equality in workforce, and companies will be able to perform better with foreign workers with more expertise than local ones.
