How is global talent mobility helping to address or compound the talent shortage? If work is created, will talent move to that work? This is a complex issue according to Rebekah Kowalski, VP and Principal Consultant for Strategic Workforce Consulting at Right Management, a ManpowerGroup Company. There is a worldwide shortage of rightly skilled talent and a mismatch between what’s needed and what is actually being supplied. According to Kowalski, the solution is a long-term, multi-stakeholder investment in developing the workforce.
