27% of workers are more willing than before to relocate, due to economic conditions.
As companies struggle to find workers with the right mix of talents to fill their needs -- 34% of employers are having difficulty filling vacancies, according to ManpowerGroup – more workers say they are willing to relocate to get a job. That includes moving to another country, and, in many cases, doing so on a permanent basis. “Talent mobility is one proven way to address to the talent supply and demand imbalance that currently exists in the labor market," says Jeffrey A. Joerres, chairman and CEO of ManpowerGroup. "It is by no means the only answer and must form part of a multi-stakeholder response. But there is a critical need to expand the view of talent sources." You may be surprised to find out which nation is the most likely where you’ll find employees who are willing to move. (Hint: It’s not India or China.) Nearly 14,400 people in nine nations took part in the research. For more about this survey and others from ManpowerGroup regarding the state of employment today, click here.
