Global immigration trends are shifting the landscape of today’s workforce. The labor shortage, for a start, is a worldwide issue. Across the globe, 40 percent of employers report having difficulty filling jobs within their companies and 42 percent say that a shortage in talent impacts their ability to serve clients, according to PwC’s annual survey.
On top of the labor shortage organizations are currently facing, expectations globalizing work forces are increasing. International assignments have increased by 25 percent over the last 10 years and are expected to double by 2020, and 71 percent of millennials want and expect an international assignment at some point in their careers, according to PwC.
