Global Talent for Competitive Advantage

“Getting to the table sooner”

This first research report, written by Stacey Reynolds our Managing Director for the Middle East, examines the growing issue of the lack of global talent.

The research has been conducted in response to first-hand evidence of an acute global talent shortage and a seeming lack of strategic long-term responses to deal with the deficit between supply and demand.


The report draws upon current literature, case studies and primary research in 17 international organisations, across eight sectors and three continents alongside our experience in career and talent management.

The title choice: “Global Talent for Competitive Advantage: Getting to the table sooner” was selected as it is apparent that organisations who have already identified the demand supply imbalance and have implemented effective interventions are getting to the global talent management table earlier. These organisations are better placed to respond to changing international markets and establish competitive edge.
