Formative Idea for Todays Session Your current and prospective workforce is now in control of when and how they access information during the purchase process. Gallup has discovered that having a good job is now the great global dream; its the number one social value for everyone. This is one of our most powerful findings ever. A good job is more important than having a family, more compelling than democracy and freedom, religion, peace and so on. Those are all very important but they are now subordinate to the almighty good job. So it follows that everything turns on delivering this ultimate need. 5. WE WONT TELL.. HOW OLD ARE YOU?

Why cant companies find the right talent despite the growing ranks of college-educated workers and the high unemployment in some of the best- educated markets? 12. THE TALENT ATTRACTION LANDSCAPE 1. Problems attracting critical-skill employees Desperate for workers, many companies will become more accepting of diverse employees, particularly older workers and women. 2. The talent market is increasingly global and mobile Economic development and greater integration across markets in the past few decades have caused many talented people to explore career opportunities overseas. 3. Employees gain more bargaining power The employer will no longer define the workplace; rather, employees priorities and preferences will dictate what the future workplace will look like, particularly now that technology makes it easier than ever to design a variety of flexible arrangements. Companies operating in aging societies will have to craft methods to engage or re-engage the experienced base of talent. Companies that fail to respond to this change and do not succeed in redefining their employee value proposition will fail to attract, retain or develop talent effectively. 13.
