People are our greatest asset. Wanna buy them?

Tuesday 07:00 GMT

Eastern Europe’s chronic labor shortage is feeding into corporate takeover activity, with some companies making acquisitions to snap up skilled workers or obtain expertise needed to expand their businesses.

While the practice represents just a small part of the region’s mergers and acquisitions market, it underlines concerns about the deepening labor crunch at a time of buoyant economic activity, advisors and executives said.
