New ‘war for talent’ is approaching

Posted: July 1st, 2014 | Filed under: News

According to a research of KPMG, a new battle for talent presents itself on the international labour market now that the global economy is recovering. The younger generation of talents is less likely to commit themselves to one company for the course of their entire professional lives. This results in a new war for talent, affecting both retention and recruitment. 60% of the HR managers say that they are looking for a fundamentally different way of recruitment and selection in order to be successful. This difficulty to fill jobs is also emphasized by ManpowerGroup’s Talent Shortage Survey 2014, that focuses on the many difficulties that employers have finding the right talent.

First Innovation Talk 2014 steers discussion on IP

Posted: June 25th, 2014 | Filed under: Events

The first Innovation Talk 2014 steers animated discussion on Intellectual Property Rights last week. Eric Lodder,  Chief Financial Officer of DSM China, states in his presentation that companies should focus on patenting their technologies. “Patent, patent, patent!”, exclaims the CFO steering a heated response from the audience, where some tech start-up entrepreneurs argue that IP is somewhat outdated and does not steer innovation especially in an open source environment. Other discussion topics are reversed innovation, innovation processes like scrum methodology and human capital with various expert speakers including Huw Andrews (PwC), Frederic Liberman (Yves Rocher Group), Liu Yan (AskLab) and Robin Young (Seedlink Technologies). The Innovation Talks is a new initiative from International Top Talent to mingle MNC’s, SME’s, Strategy Consultants and Start-ups to discuss on various innovation topics. The initiative is co-organised with Hult International Business School and the Innovation Platform of the Bencham. Next Talk will be scheduled in September 2014.

Chinese senior executives say they will boost R&D expenditures

Posted: June 20th, 2014 | Filed under: Uncategorized

KPMG’s 2014 Global Manufacturing Outlook (GMO) shows that Chinese senior executives in the manufacturing industry want to focus more on innovation and R&D. 83% of the Chinese manufacturers say they had spent 1% or less of total revenues on R&D, but they want to change that and double or even triple their R&D expenditures in the coming two years. This trend suits with China’s ambition to become more innovative, which is also shown by discussions on China being the next Silicon Valley. Everybody agrees that besides doubling R&D expenditures, good Chinese research talents are key in contributing to China’s ambition of becoming a new innovative power.
