BOSTON, July 31, 2017 — Catalant Technologies, the global leader in connecting companies to the world’s best independent business talent, on demand, released today a significant study focused on how companies are finding the right talent to deliver on key business initiatives. Catalant commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct an interview of over 100 strategy, operations, marketing and sales professionals who were looking to augment their department’s personnel to tackle business critical projects.

Among the data to come out of the survey, 88% agree that specialized talent is essential to the long-term viability of their organization. Moreover, 66% agree that the primary barrier to their long-term success is having the right people. While finding the right talent is paramount to business success, according to the survey 55% of people believe they do not have the right talent in their internal workforce to get the job done.
