Global firms in 2020: The next decade of change for organisations and workers is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The Economist Intelligence Unit conducted the survey and analysis and wrote the report. The findings and views expressed in the report do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsor. The report’s quantitative findings come from a survey of 479 senior executives, conducted in June and July 2010. The Economist Intelligence Unit’s editorial team designed the survey. Laura Moustakerski was the author of the report and Gilda Stahl was the editor. Mike Kenny was responsible for the design.
To supplement the quantitative survey results, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted in-depth interviews with relevant experts. We would like to thank all interviewees for their time and insights
