Press Release

More than 200 Participants Discussed HR & Talent Acquisition Trends in Costa Rica

AUGUST 30th 2019

•    CINDE organized the fifth edition of the HR & Talent Acquisition Forum. International and local speakers discussed ideas about global trends in talent development, in the knowledge economy.
San José, Costa Rica. August 30th, 2019. More than 200 human talent managers, leaders of multinational companies attracted by CINDE, and specialists in human development participated during the two-day HR & Talent Acquisition Forum. International and local experts discussed global trends in human talent management.

Costa Rica has more than 300 multinational companies that create 106,000 direct jobs, that are under the highest international human resources standards. These companies need to constantly keep up with the latest HR trends in order to give Costa Ricans the best working conditions. 

The congress had speakers from Coursera, PwC, Microvention, Scotiabank, IBM, Mckinsey & Company, LinkedIn, and multiple national leaders that discussed topics such as: future skills and profile of the working force, labor challenges in the digital transformation, how to improve reskilling plans in the companies, trends in human management, retaining talent, diversity and inclusion, among others.

CINDE’s Managing Director, Jorge Sequeira, said that “year after year, this event has consolidated as a window of excellency to discuss the most innovative topics for human talent management and human attraction. The quality of the speakers and the talks have opened a high-level discussion among the representatives of multinational companies established in Costa Rica, which, last year, represented 31% of the country’s formal workforce.”

The venue of the event was at the Intercontinental Hotel, in San José, Costa Rica. The forum included plenary sessions, as well as workshops according to selected specialization areas. CINDE organizes this forum for fifth consecutive year. 


CINDE is a private, non-profit organization that has been committed to the sustainable development and social progress of Costa Rica for 37 years, by attracting direct foreign investment to high added-value manufacturing and service industries that create quality employment, knowledge transfer, and production chains. CINDE also works to strengthen the Costa Rican business climate, helping support growth in value activities for the country, improving training of local talent, generating employment, and helping provide better opportunities for Costa Rica's people in the country's different communities.
