SHL Americas provides a unique, global perspective of how talent is measured in its Global Assessment Trends Report. The report presents the results of an online survey conducted in late 2012 with HR professionals from companies headquartered throughout the world. The authors were interested in examining differences between respondents in emerging economies and those in to provide relevant information for readers who may be creating assessment programs for organizations with global reach; one area of focus was on HR professionals’ response to two statements: “My organization views HR as a strategic function” and “My organization uses talent information to make business decisions.” The results are as follows:
