Ernst & Young LLP conducted an online survey among human resource, finance and risk management professionals, and C-suite executives from global Fortune 1000 companies. The aim of the survey was to provide further insight into how talent management programs and mobility assignments are being aligned and integrated across the enterprise.
Their survey findings are based on more than 340 responses representing a cross-section of some of the largest employers around the globe in a variety of industry sectors. Nearly one-third of respondents (32%) worked for companies headquartered in the United States. Roughly one-quarter (24%) worked for organizations based in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. 10% were headquartered in Australia; another 8% in individual countries like Canada, Brazil, and China; and 7% in Japan. Most respondents were senior operations, finance or HR executives. The survey was conducted from July to September 2009.
Although every organization is unique, the ideas and strategies outlined in this paper can help you and your teams develop a roadmap for balancing the needs of the company with those of its employees, as well as prepare you to address its human capital challenges in the years ahead.
