It’s not just a brain drain anymore; it’s an international war for talent. Heidrick & Struggles, together with the Economist Intelligence Unit, compiled the Global Talent Index (GTI), a report that compared how countries were faring in this war.
Pleiades Media coordinated a number of functions where the findings of the GTI were presented to the CEOs of South Africa’s top companies and to key journalists. Renowned speakers highlighted the implications of the report for South Africa and the continent at large. The events also showcased Heidrick & Struggles’ expertise in the matter.
The GTI, and by extension Heidrick & Struggles, were featured in most of the country’s major newspapers and financial weeklies as well as in the online media, TV and radio. Heidrick & Struggles rapidly developed a reputation as the authority on international talent issues and executive leadership.
