Recognizing the significance of the use of women resources, this research study clearly defined the term of 'talent' and presented related criteria as the first step to offer plans to strategically nurture female talent. The concept of "future female talent" based on the guidelines of government agencies' database includes not only first-line mangers with a potential capacity but also professionals with decision-making authority and capabilities. The notion of "future" is defined as the period of time that it takes women to be promoted from the position of low-level manager to the post of key manager.
According to the comparative analysis of the use of female talent and related issues by nation, Korea ranked 108th among 135 countries surveyed in terms of GGI (Gender Gap Index) issued by the World Economic Forum (2012). The proportion of female managers in Korea also stood at a low of 0.11%, showing a lower level of use of women resources than those of other OECD member nations. In advanced nations, the higher the level of education is, the higher the percentage of employed women is and the narrower the gap in employment between men and women is. However, Korea has yet to see such a norm. This signifies that Korea has a system where women find it hard to be employed regardless of their level of education. (The rest is omitted)
