US recruiter ManpowerGroup will address key challenges hampering economic growth at the World Economic Forum 2013 in Davos this week. Regional leaders from the staffing company will look at the ongoing fiscal uncertainty in Europe, the “demographic decay” in Asia where skills gaps impact growth rates, and the lacklustre consumer demand in the Americas.
“Despite persistent levels of high unemployment globally, ManpowerGroup's 2012 Talent Shortage Survey reveals that one in three businesses continue to struggle to find the right staff. As the world's skills mismatch causes major pressures for businesses, it will continue to be a significant pressure point in the year ahead,” said Jonas Prising, president at ManpowerGroup.
He said that companies “everywhere” must prepare for uncertainty. “Agility and the ability to tap the right talent, which can navigate unpredictable challenges, will increasingly define business success and enable economic growth.”
ManpowerGroup will be involved in sessions running from Wednesday to Friday this week, looking at topics as diverse as Russia’s economic outlook, the Eurozone crisis, and equality gaps.
