Why are we falling behind?
According to a recent Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends report:
GLOBAL organizations today must navigate a “new world of work”—one that requires a dramatic change in strategies for leadership, talent, and human resources. In this new world of work, the barriers between work and life have been all but eliminated. Employees are “always on”—hyperconnected to their jobs through pervasive mobile technology.
- Organizations around the world are struggling to strengthen their leadership pipelines, yet over the past year businesses fell further behind, particularly in their ability to develop Millennial leaders.
- Eighty-six percent of all surveyed HR and business leaders cite leadership as one of their most important challenges.
- A focus on leadership at all levels, coupled with consistent year-over-year spending in this area, is key to building sustainable performance and engaging employees in the new world of work.
