PwC research predicts the number of workers taking on global assignments is set to increase by 50% in the next decade as companies re-think where their talent needs to be based to fulfil their growth ambitions.

PwC’s ‘Talent Mobility: 2020 and beyond’ report, based on data from over 900 global companies, reveals that companies will need to offer new forms of global mobility to respond to skills shortages, changing business needs and employee preferences.

Findings from the report:

  • Over two thirds of graduates want an overseas assignment during their career, but only 11% are willing to work in India and only 2% in mainland China
  • 15% of organisations were unable to achieve growth forecasts in overseas markets due to talent constraints
  • Females will make up over a quarter of all assignees by 2020
  • The traditional flow of talent from West to East will be reversed
