Zinnov, a leading Globalization and Market Expansion Advisory firm, released “Talent Outlook 2013”,a report that highlights a paradigm shift in HR trends this year.

Key Findings :

·  Organizations believe 25% of their current talent will become redundant in the next 3-5 years,while specialized skill sets in User Experience and Mobility see rising demand

The Silicon Valley continues to be an Innovation hub, with 80% of respondents to the Zinnov survey indicating that their organizations’ headcount will increase the highest in this region.
