The quest to grow globally is more than an aspiration, it’s an economic necessity for businesses; an imperative that has taken on a critical, if not complicated dimension for multi-national companies.
As the world has progressed, it has become “flatter,” one where rapid technological advances have created both unprecedented opportunities and obstacles—the biggest of which will be finding and keeping top talent.
