The study, Adapt to Survive, for the first time analyses millions of interactions from LinkedIn’s network of 277 million professionals, and information on 2,600 employers from PwC’s Saratoga database, one of the world’s largest and most robust resources of people and performance metrics, to understand which countries are better at aligning talent with opportunity.

It examines five key talent behaviours within 11 markets and identifies two significant ‘costs’ which are based on the surveyed markets being as good at matching talent with the right opportunities as the Netherlands – the most adaptable market in the study.  When these costs are combined this could mean the economy is missing out on USD$150bn.
