The New Capitalism

The world is entering a new era, one requiring the redesign of business models, redefinition of value propositions and reinvention of social systems. This transformation is necessary with “Capitalism” shifting to “Talentism,” where it matters less if countries and companies can access the capital they need and more if they can attract the talent they need to win. Exponentially complicating matters, the demographic landscape dictates that talent— as capital once was—is becoming not only a scarce resource, but the key competitive differentiator.

Countries and companies will need to examine their business strategies and ensure they have an appropriate talent strategy in place to attract, retain and develop talent; unlocking the human potential they need to succeed.
