Are you a multinational looking for a workplace in Beirut and Amman? You’ll want to make the best decision, ones that are rational, profitable, and based on the facts on the ground.
Searching for corporate office space in any location presents a unique set of challenges: conflict of interests, cost saving, lack of transparency, anti-corruption measures and safety and security are just some of them.
But what happens when that search extends abroad to cities whose reputation is less than ideal?
Cities such as Beirut and Amman where the infrastructure is fragile, security and safety are tested regularly and whose transparency is vague. That unique set of challenges presented by most cities suddenly becomes greatly amplified.
This is why it is so important to touch base with an expert in workplace acquisition.
An expert who has in-depth knowledge of the local market, a deep understanding of the innerworkings of the said cities, and whose accredited skills can steer you through a tangle of red tape and away from many of the pitfalls.
