An alarming trend has been going around in the working population that is affecting organizations around the world. According to Manpower Group’s Talent Shortage Survey, 38% of employers are having difficulty filling jobs in 2015 – a two percent rise from the previous year. The biggest factor is the lack of available applicant (or no applicants at all), next to other factors such as lack of technical competencies, lack of experience, lack of workplace experience, and looking for more pay than is offered. The consistent decline in the working population has forced organizations to select from a shrinking talent pool. On top of that, retention is also becoming a problem for the department of Human Resources.

Based on an effective mix of concept, discussion, analysis, and skills practice, the Certified Talent Economist aims to help organizations create a stronger strategic orientation to the boardroom and build a bridge between the changing needs of global business and an increasingly fluid labor force.
