Your business is radically changing: In 1990, only one-third of S&P 500 revenue came from outside the United States; today it is half. By 2025, more than two-thirds of revenue will be international. During the past 40 years, developed countries' economic dependencies on the rest of the world have shifted to sales and consumption. Ninety-five percent of the world's consumers live outside the U.S., causing businesses to place a premium on globally savvy employees. While globalization yields significant challenges, it also offers potential for incredible reward. Leaders must position their organizations to leverage these opportunities. Expecting to hire foreign-born talent is unrealistic, especially in light of the current reverse brain drain. Are you ready?
