The Global Cost of Talent

The cost of talent will always be a key factor in employment considerations. Achieving optimum talent attraction requires that you provide competitive wages, but you do not want to overpay. You have to match your employer branding and wages with the salary expectations of the country, market and individual wage earner.

Universum has conducted a global talent survey that can help you better understand the career expectations of your business and engineering workforce no matter where you operate. Knowing this data should provide you with invaluable insights on how to attract, recruit and retain talent.
