Global Talent Barometer Launches

How willing might a South African be to get a new job? What might entice an Australian employee to relocate for a job? A website called the “Global Talent Barometer” launching today gives you a glimpse into what motivates workers in different countries and what’ll drive them to move from one country to the next. Essentially, it’s just a set of pages showing the results of a survey — but a slick set.
The site  is being unveiled by a job-board group called The Network , along with a Dutch labor-market research agency called the Intelligence Group . It’s first available to Network customers and its partners such as Beyond.com, with access possibly opening up in 2012.
For an example of what’s up on the site, let’s take India. If you click on India, you can find out, among other things:
Like any survey results, these are only as good as the survey methodology. In this case, because many respondents to this online survey were job-board users, that’ll skew the source of hire a tad, and will include more candidates with bachelor and master degrees than the general population.
“The respondents are from job boards,” says Geert-Jan Waasdorp of the Intelligence Group, “so there is some bias. But we focus mainly on motives … we know in detail what drives people from country to country B and know how to reach them.”
