  • THE ‘ANTAL GLOBAL SNAPSHOT’ THE CURRENT PICTURE - Q1 2012 Winners and Losers - Regions As in the last edition published in December, the Snapshot once again shows just how much divergence there is in economic and employment fortunes around the world. The Philippines, for example, is registering a hugely impressive 97% of businesses recruiting managers and professionals, while Spain, at the other end of the spectrum has just 29% of respondents currently hiring. Although some of the more established economies are now registering improving levels activity, the busiest employment markets continue to be those in the developing economies of the Asia Pacific region. Winners and Losers - Sectors Across the globe the sectors with the highest current levels of recruitment at professional and managerial level were: 1. Shared Services 2. Luxury Goods 3. Fashion 4. Leisure 5. Accountancy The lowest was the agricultural products sector with only 24% of organisations questioned currently hiring.

  • THE ‘ANTAL GLOBAL SNAPSHOT’ THE OUTLOOK - Q2 2012 Winners and losers As in the last report in December, it seems that the most hiring activity over the coming quarter will take place in emerging markets and particularly in those of the Asia Pacific region with China, Vietnam and the Philippines all scoring highly. Sector focus looks likely to remain constant over the coming months. Luxury Goods, Fashion, Shared Services and Accountancy all look set to remain busy while the Agricultural sector will continue to languish at the bottom of the activity table.

  • THE ‘ANTAL GLOBAL SNAPSHOT’ CONCLUSIONA hint of stability?Let’s start with the bad news. Overall hiring across the more than 17,000 organisations taking part in this edition ofGlobal Snapshot is down since our last survey in December. The good news however, is that it is only down by 1%.And it seems that this level of activity will remain more or less constant over the coming quarter.So let us stick our corporate neck out and say that it appears a degree of stability has finally returned to the globalemployment market for managers and professionals.It will perhaps come as little surprise to hear that the overall global figure masks substantial variance in the fortunesof individual countries. Several of the Eurozone countries are still languishing in the doldrums. In Spain, for example,less than a third of businesses are recruiting, although, much against expectations, in Greece over 40% ofcompanies are hiring at professional level (although even more seem to be in the process of getting rid of people).And the most significant activity is still taking place in the fast growing economies of the developing world. In China,for example, more than 70% of businesses are currently seeking new staff, while in the Philippines the figure is inexcess of 90%.Surveys like the Antal Global Snapshot are valuable indicators of the levels of optimism or pessimism withinbusinesses in key markets around the world. However they need to be read in context, a context that we build upusing feedback from our consultants and managers in over 30 countries on five continents. And what they tell us isthat, whether an employment market is active or not, competition for the best talent at the professional andmanagerial level is consistently fierce. Why? Because the skills that companies need in conjunction with specifictechnical capabilities – such as effective people management and development, concise and clear oral and writtencommunication, commercial awareness, entrepreneurship and innovation – are always in short supply. And in aworld where businesses are having to change and adapt faster than at any other time in history to tackle bothopportunities and challenges that situation is not likely to improve. In fact it’s more likely to decline. As the lastannual survey of multi-national CEOs conducted by PwC neatly pointed out, it’s not just a question of being short oftalent, it’s being short of the right talent.
