Why?The role of IT in the world keeps growingWe need talented people to produce and innovateBut we don’t have enough people locally • Shortage of +/- 10.000 in Holland, 40.000 in Germany • Greying population • Beta studies are unpopular Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 4

The size of the global labor pool India: 200.000 new IT graduates per year India 2025: the proportion of young people going to university will grow from 12% at present to 30% And then when have China, Ukraine, Vietnam and the rest of the world… Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 9
How? Cultural differences• By empathizing, we can accept the differences• From there we can organize around the differences: collaboration• If we do not accept the differences, cooperating can lead to frustration Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 10
Indians can not say ‘no’Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 11
How? Mindset• The economic pie keeps growing• Seth Godin (Linchpin): ‘ If we enlarged the pie by bringing in the best programmers from around the world, it’s inevitable that tons of jobs would be created for local talent as well. It seems to me that your outlook is completely due to your worldview.’ Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 12
How? Mindset Mindset that is not favorable• Each job created in India means one job less in Holland• Fear of job loss among employeesImportant for managers to acknowledge Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 13
How? Relations• ‘Us’ versus ‘Them’• It is easier to blame someone we don’t see• Experienced nearshore manager quote‘I forbid myself to think/say ‘Those Romanians’’ Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 14
How? Tactics• Make them an integral part of your team• Use management instruments you also use locally: 360 feedback, team outings, weekly meetings, personal development plans Accenture case: Dutch manager can send profiles, picks his team members and invests in relationships Accentures’ client has a voice in the personal development of each team member and gives ratings Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 15
How? Tactics• Stimulate empathizing:among team members: invest in tripswith your company culture: mission, vision, valueswith your products: Who uses them? Why? How do we earn money? Bridge Global IT Staffing Hugo Messer 16
