ATLANTA, Ga. and MELBOURNE, Australia – December 19, 2011 – Multinational Talent Management solutions provider, PageUp People, today announced the release of recent research entitled, “Into High Growth Markets: Defining Challenges for Multinational Corporations Operating in High Growth Markets,” authored by Sylvia Vorhauser-Smith, senior vice president of Research. While developed economies struggle with financial uncertainty and slow recovery, other emerging regions are undergoing rapid growth, creating opportunity and appeal for multinational corporations to expand operations into these high growth areas. This new research highlights the challenges multinational employers face when operating in high growth markets, as well as delivers practical human capital management insight for expansion into these regions.

Key highlights include:

  • Insight into the unique business environment for which MNCs must be prepared, including variable business governance, internet access and connectivity, and cross cultural communication challenges in high growth regions, such as China, India and Southeast Asia
