Once upon a time, companies achieved success by sourcing both talent and supplies locally, all in support of a homegrown niche market. Corporations became integral parts of their headquarters' locale, creating a symbiotic relationship of the business relying on the city, and the city on the business.
In the new millennium, that time is long past— and for good reasons! Now, due to both the internet and the ease of international travel, businesses can achieve both global reach and globalized talent development.
To remain vital and competitive on the international market, it's become imperative for corporations to source the best possible talent to support growth and success metrics. Purposeful global mobility (the ability to move talent around the world to match the very best people with the jobs they fill) is a key success factor in today's international marketplace.
