The industrial sector has been hugely impacted by globalisation over the past ten years. This has had a significant effect on top talent.

The rise of China and the Asia-Pacific as the world’s factory, as well as the rapid evolution of the transportation and logistics sector has forced nearly all industries to quickly adapt their industrial footprints.

The fast growing BRIC markets have pushed industrial organisations to optimise their product portfolios and reorganise their distribution networks. Sourcing, off-shoring, near-shoring, outsourcing, setting up global supply chains, signing partnerships, transferring technologies, opening green-field sites and managing joint-ventures – all these activities have significantly impacted the talent pool. This same talent pool will also be needed to address challenges that will continue to emerge over the next decade.
