Because most large companies have locations worldwide, the need to quickly access international employment levels and trends has never been greater. Worldwide employment rates vary greatly, so this information is vital for predicting high-potential locations for expansion and recruitment, allowing multinational companies to stay competitive in talent acquisition.
To accomplish this, PeopleScout partnered with HRO Today to produce a quarterly summary of international unemployment metrics for key countries in North America, Latin America, EMEA and APAC. This report also contains a section derived from observations contained in Measuring Human Capital: A Systematic Analysis of 195 Countries and Territories, 1990–2016. The study, conducted by the Institute for Health, Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, attempts to measure “human capital.” The report approximates the number of years an adult can be working at their peak for each of the 195 countries in its analysis.
