With talent increasingly becoming the competitive differentiator for companies and countries, there needs to be a greater focus on inclusivity of women — who comprise half of potential labor pools — at a time of acute skills shortages. ManpowerGroup's 2013 Talent Shortage Survey, released last month, found that 35 percent of employers globally are having difficulty filling key positions. In the Asia-Pacific region, that total rises to 51 percent."In this environment, it is crucial to nurture the creative potential of individuals, including new approaches to better engage women — the greatest untapped source of labor in the world," added Matthews. "Revisiting work models and people practices to be more inclusive to women workers can give companies a significant advantage over competitors at a time of acute talent shortages."
