The CEO of a regional recruitment service recently expressed optimism about the future of labor relations in the country, if several initiatives the government has alluded to are able to be fulfilled.

Joseph Boll, Caribbean Employment Services Inc. CEO, said, “As an organization that is

dedicated to working with the best employers and providing resources, awareness and

education to help ensure the best possible outcomes for Caribbean workers, we’re always

delighted when new programmes are introduced or pledges made to help them get a foot up

in the world. The people of the Caribbean are undoubtedly skilled, and deserving of the

decent wages, fair treatment and equal access to opportunity that we hope to see them


Caribbean Employment Services Inc. is a market-leading digital talent acquisition service

that aims to connect the top talent from the Caribbean with hiring managers, HR

professionals and decision-makers in companies both within the Caribbean as well as

abroad. Further, it aims to provide the region’s jobseekers and those who are already

employed with news and resources related to Caribbean labor.

Boll was responding to comments made by Minister of Labour Saboto Caesar on the

occasion of International Labour Day, or May Day, which is observed in countries around the

world on May 1 of each year.

In official comments, Minister Caesar suggested developments in areas like work-abroad

opportunities, foreign labor from CARICOM Member States, upskilling programmes, blue

economic growth and fair compensation. The Caribbean Employment Services Inc. CEO said

all of these developments would be welcome and augur favorably for the St. Vincentian

populace as well as other skilled workers in CARICOM countries.

“We were delighted to see the Minister give detailed information about the labor agenda

rather than just a few empty words on this important day,” said Boll. “In particular, Caribbean

Employment has been closely monitoring increasing work-abroad opportunities, and

developments in sustainable employment like the blue and green economies. These are

certainly areas that St. Vincent can capitalize on and we hope to see related initiatives

succeed for the benefit of workers, businesses and the region alike in the future.”
