The companies that make up this knowledge-based ecosystem face all kinds of challenges and lately they face

unexpected but tough competition.

Not between firms but

between organizations and individual talents who go out on their own to hunt business.

This Thursday, Luis Galeazzi, president of Argencon, which brings together companies, said it very clearly: "Companies have been able to develop

hundreds of thousands of high-quality professionals

who are recognized throughout the world and are the training environment par excellence where knowledge is enhanced by teamwork, under the supervision of expert leaders, "he released to mark differences with the new phenomenon they are encountering and which

raises the price of talent


"We have a high endemic cost,

higher than that of our international competition,"

Galeazzi said, noting that many of them are

going to work for companies that compete with Argentine firms abroad


"It is already a market loss problem."

Knowledge economy

This industry, which initially had the software law and recently the Knowledge economy law, became the

third largest exporter in Argentina

with US $ 5,650 million in 2020 and 420,000 jobs.

This volume of exports reflects, however, a drop from the peak of US $ 6.5 billion.


We have been falling for ten consecutive quarters," they


Another reproach of the companies is that these free talents were trained in the organizations themselves and

then took flight.

It is a trend that is repeated in other sectors with

young people who do not support corporate life

In the industry they highlight a kind of

unfair competition.


The companies have employer charges, taxes, pay export duties. All aggravated by the exchange gap oscillating between 40 and 80% with a blue dollar of $ 140 versus the official one at $ 92," Galeazzi insisted.

Thus they speak of a

parallel labor market.

  They argue that to the brain drain it is added that many of the free talents

operate in the dark, leveraged on “freelance platforms”

that provide the necessary instruments: the search for clients, the means of payment, contracts, offers and intermediation in the market. payment of services.


100 individuals temporarily hired for projects

do not have the same productive and creative capacity

as a company of 100 professionals acting organically within the permanent framework of continuous jobs," they said in a meeting with the press.

And they added that the training chain is broken.

"Individual work does not generate school," they

insisted on what seems like a workhorse for a fight that has just begun.
