Global Talent Gap Highlighted by TRANSEARCH International Client Survey

- (1888PressRelease) December 15, 2010 - A recent Client Survey by leading global executive search firm TRANSEARCH International, highlights a surprising number of global business leaders believe they lack the executive talent and management bench strength to create, maintain or regain a competitive edge over the competition.
This, despite the overwhelming consensus that reveals 87 percent of respondents believe the performance of executives in their senior-most management roles will rank as the single biggest determinant of whether they meet corporate objectives or as one of the three biggest influences on enterprise goals over the next 12 months.
The TRANSEARCH International Global Survey was based on in-depth 2010 surveys of 600 global business leaders, mostly in the role of Chief Human Resources Officer, Vice President of Human Resources, HR Director, Group HR Manager and their functional equivalents. The survey participants were, at the time, employed by mostly large, global and regional corporations across a broad variety of industries and organisations based in Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and North America.
The Global Survey highlights how corporate Human Resources teams around the world are addressing management development, where global Human Resources officers and hiring managers currently see the biggest management talent gaps in their organisations, what the expectations are of externally recruited executives, and how Human Resources departments are working to measure organisational performance.
The survey also presents key metrics on how executive leadership performance will impact the realisation of business objectives, global talent management priorities, and how global companies feel about executive compensation.
