By  William J. Rothwell, Angela Stopper, Leen Zaballero

Measuring and Addressing Talent Gaps Globally Cover

A global corporate mindset has become increasingly critical in today’s business environment. Yet managers and workers who have little or no exposure to other cultures may have a difficult time acknowledging that a talent development strategy with a global perspective is essential to their success.

In this TD at Work, you will:

  • Explore the need to think about talent gaps in a global context.
