Welcome to the second issue of the Talent Barometer. A barometer gauges the pressure of the atmosphere, indicating an area of high or low pressure, allowing us to forecast changes in the weather. The Talent Barometer aims to measure the pressure of the current talent market in Pakistan. It measures whether the opportunities for talent are entering a period of high pressure (more career opportunities) or low pressure (less career opportunities), as well as the confidence level of managers to obtain better career opportunities in the future.
Close to 500 managers from across all industries, functions and levels responded to our invitation to participate in the survey. They have given their opinion on personal career intentions, the available opportunities in the market and their confidence to find better jobs in the future.
The data collected also gives us insights into the ‘pressure levels’ in the talent market allowing us to determine which industries, functions and executive levels are ‘heating up’ or ‘cooling down’. This helps companies anticipate and plan their engagement and talent management strategies.
Engage Consulting is committed to supporting leaders and HR professionals with local talent and leadership related research data, whether it is through our Employee Engagement Surveys, Best Place to Work and Most Preferred Employer Study or through the Talent Barometer. Engage Consulting believes that we can add value to you and your company if we base our advice on genuine insights and research based facts.
I am confident that you will find the findings in this year’s issue of the Talent Barometer insightful and appreciate your continued support and participation in future issues of the Talent Barometer.
