Economic Stability Leading to Uptick in Human Capital Investment

October 15, 2013 – Companies are once again investing in human capital for the long haul, owing to stabilizing economies in developed markets and escalating global market competitiveness across multiple industries, according to the quarterly Boyden Executive Outlook. “Until recently, companies were limiting hiring to C-level and critical senior roles and remained skittish in making long-term plans to expand management teams due to economic uncertainties,” said Trina Gordon, president and CEO of Boyden World Corporation. “With the global economies growing more stable, companies particularly in the U.S. and parts of Europe are investing more in hiring and talent development to ensure the right workforce for gaining a competitive market edge.” Toby Lapage-Norris, managing partner of Boyden U.K., also noted: “In the U.K., there has been a strengthening of confidence in the domestic market over the past quarter, whereas in recent years the focus was on emerging markets growth.”
