Most organizations are recognizing the significant headwinds impacting their ability to find, maintain and grow the talent they need to meet future demand.

Worker demographics have reached a tipping point as millennials begin to replace baby boomers to make up the largest percentage of the workforce. Add on top of this a new administration in the U.S., a global wave of nationalism (as seen with Brexit), questions about trade policy and a protectionist mindset around jobs, and there are serious implications about how employers will need to evolve to survive (and even thrive). Talent technology must play a key role.
