Does your global talent strategy rely on data you can trust?

Lightcast solutions can solve problems almost anywhere you can imagine. Our database has information on over 150 countries for reference and consulting, while our global software products come ready with data on 28.

Countries use all kinds of different names and definitions to understand their own labor markets, so we solve this disparity by using our own taxonomy that unifies titles between countries and helps everyone speak the same language. 

Having this broad view helps you compare markets across borders, determine where your company might expand, and understand the local skills landscape all over the world.
