KR's new report on Talent Mobility in Africa is the first of its kind.

It offers readers a unique overview of the impact of global talent mobility on Africa, and provides them with analysis, insights and recommendations to aid in moving talented employees to new locations rapidly and efficiently. The report details emigration and immigration patterns on the continent with a particular focus on six English-speaking countries that collectively account for 59% of continental GDP: Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia. It also details skills shortages in these countries; movements of highly skilled migrants; drivers of attracting and retaining top talent; and analysis of immigration regimes and work permit application procedures. In addition, it provides insights on managing and compensating expatriates in emerging markets. 

This report is an essential tool for strategic thinking around talent mobility that has become crucial for companies with multinational operations.
