The world is shocked by the war in Ukraine, with millions of people watching the horrific events unfold live on the news. This war will affect the people of Ukraine for generations to come.
UNDP, World Bank, and others are now forecasting that up to 70% of Ukrainians will be living in poverty by the end of 2022. Unless significant investments, grants, and other financial instruments are made available to Ukraine, the World Bank notes poverty will continue for years to come. Poverty rates in Ukraine will likely stay above 60% through 2025 if the war were to end today.
Although Ukraine has one of the highest tertiary education rates (83%) with an especially high STEM education rate, Ukrainians are still forced to face the need to provide for their families. High-value Ukrainian talent will leave the country as the war ends to provide for their families. We (the collective global community) need to help Ukrainians find jobs now that allow them to work remotely and continue to live in their home country.
We are working hard to place Ukrainians on remote contracts with Western companies. Further, we are placing dedicated teams of technology talent on contracts with US, UK, Canadian, and EU companies.
We understand this will not be enough, and many Western companies may not be in a position to hire a Ukrainian team on a remote basis. Please contact us if your company can sponsor an H1B (or similar work visa). We will provide in-country recruiting at no cost to help Ukrainians through these difficult times.
Over the years, we have been heavily involved in helping to develop the Ukrainian workforce and introducing Western companies to the potential of the people of Ukraine. As the war comes to an end, we will be involved in establishing collaborative workforce development programs in Ukraine, partnering Western companies with Ukrainian academia. We need your help in developing these programs as well. Contact us to find out how you can help rebuild the workforce in Ukraine after the war.
With 15 years of experience working in the country, the people of Ukraine stand out. There is a great reverence for academic pursuits within the country. Ukrainians celebrate their scientific, engineering, and technological achievements more than any other country we have worked in. Walking through the halls of the many Ukrainian universities, you meet a near-endless group of students that believe in their country and care greatly about proving they are among the best in the world.
Mozok (or ‘мозок’ in Ukrainian) is the word for the brain. We cannot think of a more fitting name to represent the people of Ukraine or the product we sell. We are the leaders in further developing the Ukrainian technology workforce and introducing this incredible talent to the world.
