    Headhunting in France

    France is a country with a strong work ethic and a rich history of entrepreneurship. However, there are some obstacles to finding employees in France that international companies expanding into the country should be aware of.

    The French government has very strict laws around hiring, which makes it difficult for companies to find qualified candidates.
