Talent is the number one challenge for Global Business Services
Attracting, retaining, and managing skilled talent will be the Number One concern facing most global companies for the foreseeable future, according to a recent KPMG study1.

Better utilization of techniques such as workforce analytics to identify and assess talent is needed. However, lacking adequate analytical skills, many organizations are unable to determine if untapped talent exists internally, resulting in efforts being focused on the more costly acquisition of external talent.
