The War Between Russia and Ukraine is Affecting Staff Augmentation

The Staff Augmentation business and the location of resources have been affected by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Mainly because the war between these countries has created an uncertain business environment.

Staff augmentation business and concern among clients

The humanitarian crisis derived from the military invasion in Ukraine has had a great impact on the Staff Augmentation business. At a time when Ukraine exports about 6.8 billion dollars in services of this type, according to the IT Ukraine Association. Even this nation, along with other neighbors, usually employs more than 750,000 business professionals under this technological concept.

Staff augmentation and location of resources amid a crisis

Within the conflict region and surrounding areas, impacts include business closures in strategic areas. The hostilities in these cities affect more than 100,000 employees of this type of service. We must bear in mind that there are three large centers of operations (Lviv, Kharkiv, and Kyiv), which have been affected. Not to mention the growing professional brain drain and economic isolation in Russia and Ukraine. All these teams are being moved or re-created in Latin America now, and this is a great opportunity for many companies. Especially here at at Techunting.

IT services in surrounding regions

Staff Augmentation business and resource placement may not be fully affected in nearby regions. For this reason, some companies have moved their companies to position themselves in Romania, Hungary, or Poland. This facilitates the exchange of services, although the operations are limited if the clients belong to the zones in conflict. For example, activities are still taking place in some western areas of Ukraine
