The talent hurdles of the future — the not-so-distant future — will be far different from what they are today. Deep shifts in the global marketplace are already reshaping the supply and demand for the best and the brightest. Faced with structural changes — economic realignment, advances in technology, globalization of markets, new customer needs and increased competition — organizations around the world are demanding new skills from their employees. We face a profound paradox though. Despite the estimated 40 million unemployed workers in the industrialized world, according to recent estimates by the International Labor Organization, executives and managers are struggling to find all the people with the proper skills to fill their vacancies.
Companies and their HR leaders must rise now to the challenge of managing the talent mismatch or the future will be at risk.
