Global mobility – a competitive advantage for international business
Despite the stop/start nature of the global economic recovery, one thing that is perennially on the agenda of CEOs and HR leaders is the war for talent. McKinsey in their latest Quarterly Review (1) suggest that ‘progress towards globalisation’s new era will be uneven for economies and companies alike’. Knowledge in the new intangible assets world will certainly mean power. In the digital global age there will inevitably be a demand for new breeds of talent – emanating from both emerged and emerging countries.

This resonates with the findings of the Santa Fe 2014 Global Mobility Survey Report (3) that there was optimism about the growth in internationally mobile employees.
