Talent Edge New Zealand 2013
Addressing worrisome gaps
Similar to our 2012 report, we again observe that “the global economic outlook remains murky” – deficits in the EU and US, slowing growth in China, pervasive budget challenges around the world, high employment in many markets, continued demographic pressures, market uncertainty, potential market bubbles, environmental challenges, political risks, and more. Amidst this murky economic outlook, Deloitte initiated our New Zealand survey to determine what sort of talent challenges NZ organisations are facing today, what impact is felt on business results, what types of talent are in short supply, what people management practices are most important to business success, and where are the gaps between what’s important and current effectiveness.
The gaps are significant and numerous and they will become more acute. Organisations that fail to understand and address them will not be successful and may not survive. The time to address these gaps is now.
