‘Talent is the fuel that drives the engine of the world economy’

‘Talent is the fuel that drives the engine of the world economy’ – that was the conclusion of a report by Mercer to the WEF at Davos earlier this year.

HR’s role is therefore critical – the human capital strategy must mirror, support and drive the business strategy whilst anticipating the challenges of working across multiple international markets with disparate growth rates.

However, in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, the difficulties of managing the people agenda across international borders have increased dramatically – demanding new approaches to international HR strategy that balance global objectives with local realities.

As global organisations intensify operations in areas of high potential growth, the competition for talent increases creating acute human capital challenges that threaten economic and business growth.

Join us to examine how the world’s leading organisations drive people strategy to support business objectives – and answer this key question:

How does HR maximize competitive advantage and strike the right balance between global and regional approaches?

Attend the Strategic HR Network’s International HR Conference on the 20th November to hear how leading organisations ate creating cost effective global HR that allows for regionalisation of business. View the full programme
