Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hewlett and Rashid make a powerful case that companies keen to recruit and develop these women should help them manage specific challenges they face, such as safety when travelling or responsibility for the care of ageing relatives… the book offers useful lessons in how big business can do better.” — BusinessDay

In Winning the War for Talent in Emerging Markets, [Sylvia Ann Hewlett and Ripa Rashid ] debunk the stereotypes of the oppressed Arab woman, the bikini-clad Brazilian, the Bollywood heroine, and the adoring Asian wife, and focus instead on well-educated women determined to achieve in their careers.” – Global Business and Organizational Excellence

“…this book is a fascinating examination of the lives of women in these very complex and fast-changing societies, and should appeal to anyone interested in attracting and keeping women employees who have different cultural and personal pulls than their male counterparts in every society.” – Jack Covert, 800 CEO READ

“I highly recommend the thought provoking and well researched book…to any business leaders who are actively recruiting and hiring talented employees in the developing world. This book demonstrates the competitive advantage that any company will discover by hiring and retaining the highly educated and ambitious women of the emerging economies.” – Wayne Hurlbert, Blog Business World

Great book that identifies the behind the scenes situations and challenges that females encounter in the Developing World with particular emphasis on Dubai where literature is still challenging to identify.

Studies are accuarte and reflect literary trends.

I'm fascinated by the impact women have on business, especially in the developing world.

All too often, I'm disappointed when I buy a text. This time I was thrilled. The book is full of helpful information as well as explanations for behavior.

Well worth a read for anyone interested in the BRIC countries.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book. Hewlett and Rashid have done a great job of synthesizing their vast qualitative and quantitative research program into concise, memorable, and useful descriptions and prescriptions. The writing is clear, their argument is compelling, and global corporations would be well advised to pay careful attention to their insights about how the war for talent will be won- or lost- in emerging markets.

Format: Hardcover
The prevailing stereotype of women in developing nations as victimized, submissive and unschooled is simply not true. In fact, women in Brazil, Russia, India, China (the BRIC nations) and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are graduating from universities in growing numbers that rival and often surpass those of men. These educated women represent a rich talent pool for businesses looking to expand in emerging markets. However, females continue to face societal pressure and organizational discrimination in their cultures. Multinationals that help these women overcome cultural restrictions and biases that thwart their aspirations will gain access to a wealth of talent. Economist Sylvia Ann Hewlett and management consultant Ripa Rashid make a strong case for nurturing this highly qualified female workforce. getAbstract finds their research essential reading for managers looking to hire and operate in emerging economies.
