CS Bern: Corporate Proile

  1. 1. CS Bern: Plug Into the Global Workforce™ CS Bern Plug Into the Global Workforce™ CS Bern Company Profile The global recession of 2009 fundamentally changed the worldwide economy. For the next decade, the global business market will be defined by the following: 1. Global hyper-competition from companies from companies in emerging market that have not previously competed in the global market place. 2. Continued financial pressure stemming from global economic instability forcing companies to do far more, faster and with fewer resources available. 3. A fundamental shift in workforce from traditional markets (North America and Western Europe) to emerging markets. 4. A global shortage of skilled talent on a scale never seen before. Most companies are already struggling with each of the above. Companies are delaying projects due to a lack of available skilled talent and, in many cases, are now finding it difficult to provide core offerings priced competitively against emerging global options. If these companies don’t embrace this new global era now, they risk quickly becoming obsolete. CS Bern was created to help you resolve these specific issues. We help companies plug into the global workforce and compete in the worldwide economy.
  2. 2. CS Bern: Plug Into the Global Workforce™ © 2013 CS Bern www.csbern.com Page 2 The Global Marketplace We have entered a new era where companies must aggressively compete globally against firms from markets never before considered a threat. We now have to do far more and do it faster for much less. Compounding the problem, we are now in the early phase of a global skilled talent shortage of a scale never before seen in history. Domestic talent in traditional markets (North America and Western Europe) is quickly drying up. Local talent consumption in emerging markets such as India and China is now making it difficult for companies to simply import foreign talent from those markets. This global skilled talent shortage is already having a material impact on companies. Over 90% of the Fortune 500™ report delayed projects due to a lack of skilled talent. In some industries (engineering, natural resources, high tech, biotechnology & pharmaceuticals), the problem is critical and companies in these industries are experiencing delays in large projects due to a lack of skilled personnel. This already significant problem is about to get much worse. The global labour pool is teetering on a precipice and even a relatively minor increase in talent demand will materially impact your ability to find the skills you need to deliver projects. The stabilization of Eurozone economies, an increase in emerging market consumer spending, a return to robust growth in the U.S economy will tip the demand for skilled talent over the cliff. Unless companies have changed the way they approach skilled labour resourcing and project delivery, they will not be prepared to compete for skilled labour. Options To compete in the new reality of skilled labour shortages, companies have two options: Pay a premium for talent. There will always be talent available if a company is willing to pay a premium. “Marshal Economics” theory dictates that as domestic talent pools continue to thin out, pricing will increase. This has already happened in most traditional markets and with most high end skills. The cost of skilled personnel has already risen to the point that companies can no longer be price competitive. A complete paradigm shift in project delivery and resourcing. This second option requires a fundamental change in how companies approach project delivery and project resourcing. Implementing a global delivery and resource framework allows you to find (and mobilize) the talent you need, when you need it. This new framework also has the potential for material cost savings over traditional domestic delivery and project resourcing models.
  3. 3. CS Bern: Plug Into the Global Workforce™ © 2013 CS Bern www.csbern.com Page 3 Paradigm Shift Companies that want to compete in the future global economy must change the way they approach both project resourcing and project delivery. This paradigm shift involves the implementations the following: Global Resourcing and Mobilization Framework. Companies need to implement a framework that effectively and efficiently allows them to find the best talent globally and then mobilizes these resources for projects anywhere in the world. Global Delivery Framework. Way too often, companies opt for domestic and in-house delivery models for major projects when talent cannot be easily sourced (or mobilized) locally. Companies need to implement a global delivery framework that allows them to utilize teams in remote markets effectively. In doing so, companies gain access to a new source of talent and can achieve a significant cost savings over local delivery options. This global delivery framework can include both outsourcing services and captive centers. Strategic Workforce Development. The best companies in the world are now preparing for the day where available skilled talent may simply be nonexistent. These companies are now implementing strategic workforce development programs in foreign countries to help create a large and tailor-made workforce. Having such programs can help a company avoid future project delays due to global skilled talent shortages. Global Resourcing and Mobilization. Global Delivery Framework.
