Talent 2020:

Surveying the talent paradox from the employee perspective


The economic turbulence of the past few years has created a talent paradox: amid stubbornly high unemploy­ment, employers still face challenges filling technical and skilled jobs. Deloitte first uncovered this modern contra­diction from the employer side in The talent paradox: Critical skills, recession, and the illusion of plenitude.1 In this Talent 2020 report, we turn our focus to the employee perspective on the talent paradox.


Talent 2020 is a longitudinal survey series conducted for Deloitte Consulting LLP by Forbes Insights exploring changing talent priorities in all industries, at large businesses worldwide in the Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The Talent 2020 series follows the Managing Talent in a Turbulent Economy series from 2009 and 2010.
