The Borderless Workforce 2011 report by ManpowerGroup investigates how companies look for global talent to fill skills shortages.
Released last week was ManpowerGroup’s recent survey on a borderless workforce. It seeks to understand how 'organizations are using foreign talent to help ease talent shortages in their workforce'.
ManpowerGroup conducted research among nearly 25,000 employers across 39 different countries and territories. Key findings:
25% of employers who are facing skills shortages are looking to foreign talent to fill this.
Engineers, labourers and workers are the shortage areas that tend to most often be filled by foreign talent.
33% of employers are concerned about the impact of outward migration of talent from their home countries.
