Global Talent Crisis

Despite the talent crisis in much of the Western world and across most of Europe, there is a surplus of supply in other geographies, for example, South Africa is suffering its highest adult unemployment at 35%. Egypt and Malaysia as well as LatAm also have available talent.

This event addressed the global talent crisis with an ultimate goal to develop a Global Heatmap highlighting areas of supply and demand for different skills. We took a look at the current talent situation across different geographies and propose solutions to the crisis not just by better balancing global supply and demand, but by:

  • accessing flexible resourcing, 
  • gig workers, 
  • open talent, 
  • impact sourcing, 
  • automation and other technologies 
  • and skills convergence programmes.
