To fight the brain drain, Danish business executive Thomas Sillesen is planning to build for his workers a 250-house suburban development

To fight the brain drain, Danish business executive Thomas Sillesen is planning to build for his workers a 250-house suburban development three kilometers north of Odesa. “If you have a nice job, a nice house – why move?” asks Sillesen who now has 125 engineers working at the Odesa office of BIIR, his engineering and design company. The fight for skilled labor is so acute, he tells UBN, that a German company opened an office in Odesa, identified his workers through LinkedIn, and then “started systematically calling our employees.”
