The World Economic Forum and Mercer have collaborated on extensive global research on how effective talent mobility can spur economic growth. The just-issued report – Talent Mobility Good Practices – Collaboration at the Core of Driving Economic Growth – will be presented this week at the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland by Patricia A. Milligan, President of Mercer’s Talent, Rewards and Communication business.
In conjunction, Mercer has launched a new resources site – www.mercer.com/globaltalent – that offers advice and innovative ways to manage global talent and mobility challenges. It features:
- An animated three-minute video highlighting the key research findings
- An interactive version of the research report, plus a downloadable PDF of the full report
- A searchable library of the report’s 55 case studies
- Registration for Mercer’s upcoming Davos Debrief webcasts to be held in February
- An array of Mercer thought leadership to help organizations address their global talent issues
About the research
The World Economic Forum/Mercer research examined talent mobility practices among more than 500 organizations in 45 countries and found that talent mobility is not achieving its full potential. The 55 case studies included in the report reveal that collaboration among stakeholders on all sides of the employment equation – companies, governments, academic institutions, nonprofit entities and employees – is essential to successful talent mobility efforts. The research report outlines concrete actions that stakeholders around the world have implemented – and that others can emulate – to address their talent challenges.
“Our research shows that a variety of solutions for advancing effective talent mobility practices are already being implemented – and successfully,” said Ms. Milligan. “Through the report and our new resources site, we can share these good practices and allow others to benefit from it.”
Stakeholders with talent mobility good practices featured in the report include: ABB, Adecco, Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), BC Hydro, The Boston Consulting Group, the European Commission, HCL Technologies, Infosys, the International Labor Organization (ILO), INSEAD, LVMH, ManpowerGroup, Mercer, NASSCOM, Polish Confederation of Private Employers, PwC, Saudi Aramco, Standard Chartered, Toronto Financial Services Alliance and Wal-mart, among others.
