International Workforce

With an estimated 56,000 people employed in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sector, Ireland has become a prime location for international and local talent looking to further their career in the diverse and fast-paced sectors of BPO, Business and Data Process Management.

Proportionally Ireland has the 4th highest international workforce in the EU, with 380,000 non-Irish people employed in Ireland in 2019 (which equals 16.5% of total employment).  Ireland also ranks 1st globally for attracting and retaining international talent.

Ireland’s multicultural society, coupled with Irish companies having access to a labour pool of 250m people in the EU, gives Crios Group members an advantage in sourcing the right multilingual talent to service their clients global needs.

The latest Irish Census revealed that over 612,000 residents spoke a language other than English at home
