ManpowerGroup Prioritizes Mobile Talent as Essential Component of Employers' Workforce Strategies at World Economic Forum in India

India Emerges As Talent Destination For Mobile Workers

PR Newswire
Nov 11, 2011

MUMBAI, India, Nov. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions and World Economic Forum (WEF) strategic partner, will advise employers how to source the right talent within and across borders and scale their national workforce at the 13-14 Nov. WEF-India Economic Summit, which will be co-chaired by ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO Jeffrey A. Joerres.


At several key functions, Joerres will discuss the types of policies, public-private strategies and migration patterns that are driving greater sourcing opportunities across Asia's talent corridors. The world's borderless workforce – the migration of talent across and within national boundaries – is growing rapidly in size. Employers who take a sophisticated approach to managing talent supply and demand by including a mobile talent strategy in their overall approach to assemble the right skill sets will position themselves to win the escalating war for talent.

"Only by leveraging the strengths of its workforce will India continue to accelerate the pace of domestic growth over the long term and achieve superpower status," Joerres said. "The World Economic Forum has become a pivotal opportunity for enabling academia, industry and government to collectively address today's most significant workforce challenges in fast-growing markets such as India. ManpowerGroup's leading insight into the World of Work continues to enable India in aligning the right workers with the right work. With a flexible framework, its vibrantly young workforce, growing middle class and improved public-private sector collaboration, scaling the development of India's workforce is indeed humanly possible."

Joerres will participate in the summit's opening press conference and lunch with WEF Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab and the two following panel discussions. Tune in to the live Webcast at
