Asia Pacific is in the midst of a period of significant expansion and growth. Globally recognized as the economic powerhouse of the world, one of the outcomes of this growth has been increased pressure on talent stocks across the region. Talent is scarce, in terms of availability and employability, remains mismatched with demand, and is increasingly difficult to find and engage.

Meanwhile, there is a diaspora, a dispersion of talent away from Asia Pacific as skilled workers move abroad to seek new opportunities. The numbers are significant; hundreds of thousands of highly qualified workers from Asia Pacific pursue their careers away from home.

Alexander Mann Solutions set out to engage with and survey these workers, to understand their intentions for international relocation--and for returning home--whilst also studying their habits and attitudes towards Asia Pacific.
