HR transformation in the global business environment: The journey continues

18 key business drivers for transforming HR in a changing world


HR transformation in the global business environment



The global business environment is experiencing unprecedented change and human resources (HR) should develop new capabilities if it wants to remain relevant. Our world’s social and economic centre of gravity is steadily shifting from west to east. Many developing countries are facing a “new normal,” characterized by ongoing economic uncertainty, lingering underemployment, excessive debt, and stagnant consumer demand. At the same time, emerging countries are flourishing as their expanding populations and growing middle classes give rise to a new and powerful pool of consumers and workers. And all of this is happening against an unpredictable backdrop of natural disasters, political upheavals, dwindling global resources and wildly fluctuating commodity prices.


These forces have significant implications for the future of business and HR. And the future starts now.

Global-business-driven HR transformation is a crosscurrent of rapid changes in culture, technology, law and leading practices. There’s no such thing as an organization that’s arrived at its destination — there are only ones that keep evolving and ones content to stand still. In our new book, Global business driven HR transformation: The journey continues, Deloitte has mined the experience and vision of its leading field professionals to explore the many future trends that are shaping the way companies relate to their people.
