Deloitte Report Uncovers Seven Crucial Leadership Conversations
Workplace flexibility and addressing the growing talent gap are among the top trends detailed in report
NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 – Success in most organizations depends on the commitment and talent of its workforce. According to Deloitte’s third annual Human Capital Trends report, Leading Indicators, C-level executives need to take a critical look at how their company’s talent is driving its business and address seven specific issues in order to remain successful over the next 18 to 24 months.
“Our report provides human resources executives with the roadmap they can use to help them address critical talent issues that could directly impact an organization’s performance going forward,” said Barbara Adachi, national managing director, Human Capital, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Many companies are facing game-changing dynamics within the areas of technology, globalization, demographics and regulation. It is critical for executives to address these issues head-on and strategically, rather than waiting for a crisis moment to trigger a response that does not fit into the long-term growth of the company.”
The following seven Human Capital trends examined in the report offer leaders the opportunity to make more informed talent decisions going forward:
“Companies need to blend together their business and talent strategies to help stay ahead of the curve in today’s highly competitive talent marketplace,” said Michael Gretczko, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Seriously considering how these seven Human Capital trends could be integrated into an organization takes courage. Making changes within an organization can seem daunting, but we believe that those who do will reap the rewards that come with being a forward-thinking organization.”
