Leaders in a Global Economy

2003 – 2008

Catalyst’s research series Leaders in a Global Economy explored the unprecedented challenges that require companies to address the talent management of their leaders. Global shifts in labor force participation rates of women, rapid changes in international competition, and demands for more inclusive workplaces have redefined what companies once described as “effective” talent management. This is especially true in different regions of Europe where companies face a host of evolving social, political, economic, and organizational forces that directly and indirectly impact the management of employees.
