The research revealed that 94.1 per cent of respondents to a survey said that they had a shortage of quality leadership talent either right now or they expected it in the future. Steve Watson, international chairman of Stanton Chase, said: "These numbers indicate a critical need for talent that's forcing organisations to rethink their hiring and retention practices-or suffer the consequences."

Of the companies that were surveyed, two thirds said that they were concerned by the situation and nearly half of them said the skills shortage will have an affect at senior management level. Stanton Chase is a provider of executive search consulting services worldwide.
