PETAH TIKVA, Israel(Reuters) – Intel Corp (INTC.O) is investing heavily in “smart buildings” in Israel that will be full of perks to keep employees happy, helping the U.S. chipmaker compete for the country’s top professionals. Intel, one of the biggest employers and exporters in Israel, plans to invest $11 billion to build a manufacturing facility in the country, where some of its most advanced technologies have been hatched. Home to more startups per capita than any other nation thanks to its advanced military and government support, Israel is suffering from a shortage of talent. While multinationals like Intel, Apple and Google have snapped up local startups and set up research centers, competition is making it tough to find skilled workers.
