Welcome to Deloitte’s annual report examining significant trends in human capital. Each year we begin with a range of potential topics, then work with clients, vendor teams, academics, analysts, and Deloitte practitioners to refine and sharpen the list. We select the trends that may have the most potential business impact over the next 18 to 24 months.  This year’s theme, Crucial Conversations, explores seven critical human capital trends that leaders should be talking about today.

Thinking like an economist
Increasingly, many HR leaders have to answer questions that have an economic issue at their core—the allocation of a scarce resource called talent.

Robin Lissak, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Jonathan Ohm, Managing Director, Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC
Patricia Buckley, Director, Deloitte Services, LP


The open talent economy
Jump ahead to the year 2020. Half the people you rely on don’t actually work for you, and that’s a good thing—if you’re ready.

Andrew Liakopoulos, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Jeff Schwartz, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Lisa Barry, Partner, Deloitte Consulting LLP


Innovating the talent brand
Social media has erased whatever lines used to exist between the corporate brand and the talent brand. They’re two sides of the same coin.

Craig Gill, Director , Deloitte Services LP
Sarah Gretczko, Sr. Manager, Deloitte Services LP
Grant Luckey, Analyst, Deloitte Consulting LLP


Creating an elastic workplace
Workplace flexibility has become table stakes for attracting and retaining employees. Now companies must align their flexibility strategy with their core strategy to realize the benefits.  

Tracy Haugen, Director, Deloitte Consulting LLP

Finding the silver lining in the talent gap
Organizations can capitalize on shifting retirement patterns to help narrow their talent gap.

Karen Bowman Karen Bowman, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Jason Flynn, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Tim Geddes, Director, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Jeff Sumberg, Specialist Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP

Debunking the Superman Myth
Yesterday’s leadership theories are not keeping pace with the velocity of today’s disruptive marketplace. Organizations are seeking a new model for the age of agility.  

Bill Pelster, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Geoffrey Helt, Senior Manager, Deloitte Consulting LLP


The performance management puzzle
Some say traditional ways of managing employee performance are irrelevant in today’s fast-changing work environment. Others argue that these methods drive accountability and differentiated compensation. Both are right.  

Tom Hodson, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Erika Bogar King, Director, Deloitte Services LP
Daniel Roddy, Specialist Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP
