  • More than ever before, the ability to tap the potential of people is becoming every organization’s key competitive advantage. At the same time, many organizations are finding it more difficult to attract the kind of talent they need, where and when they need it most. In this talent-driven era, companies also need to do business more flexibly on an increasingly global scale. Talent is the new “It,” and the race for talent is leading organizations to expand their talent acquisition horizons, from exploring opportunities for a virtual workforce to those in borderless talent solutions.

    In ManpowerGroup’s 2011 Borderless Workforce Survey of more than 25,000 employers from 39 countries and territories, about one-quarter of those surveyed said they’ve been looking outside their borders to find talent and solve their skills shortages. With increasing demands for niche skills in companies around the world, people are also becoming more mobile, willing to relocate to take advantage of new opportunities. Determining how to strategically migrate in-demand talent within and across countries is a growing business need – and those organizations that realize the importance of mobilizing their workforce will win in the Human Age.
