Maximizing Returns on Recruitment Travel

20-minute Webinar on Tues, 10 February

As colleagues prepare to embark on recruitment travel this Spring, we encourage you to take advantage of trusted research to make the most of your time spent abroad. One valuable interactive map: The Global Metro Monitor from the Brookings Institute, which covers the world's 300 largest metropolitan economies that accounted for nearly half of global output in 2014. The map is especially helpful in identifying emerging market opportunities, based on rising incomes and standards of living. Special thanks to George Kacenga in NAFSA's IEM Forum for bringing it to our attention!
