As companies worldwide start to look beyond the recession of 2009, many business leaders are adjusting their talent and global mobility strategies to meet their new strategic priorities. Putting the right people in the right jobs in the right locations is the key to business success. Today, this often requires new people with new skills in new jobs in new places.

While the inclination may be to revert to strategies that served organisations well prior to the economic crisis, many are now recognising that the forces shaping future talent and mobility needs, such as globalisation and an aging workforce, continued to accelerate during the downturn and now require new talent and mobility strategies to position their companies for success.
