2023 Global Human Capital Trends

New fundamentals for a boundaryless world

The boundaries that were once assumed to be the natural order of things are falling away as disruption and discontinuity challenge traditional models and assumptions about work. Organisations and workers must traverse this new landscape together, calling on a new set of fundamentals to navigate the boundaryless world.

New fundamentals for a boundaryless world

The 2023 Deloitte Human Capital Trends Report, New fundamentals for a boundaryless world, is clear: returning to the past way of doing business is not an option. Belgian respondents recognise that the boundaries that have traditionally governed the rules of work—the way jobs are organised, where work happens, and who qualifies for specific roles—are falling away. Global, economic, and societal trends call into question the very foundations of how, where, and why we work.

In a boundaryless world, work isn’t defined by jobs, the workplace isn’t a specific place, and many workers aren’t traditional employees. Those who partner with workers and experiment with what’s possible will create sustainable work models and elevated outcomes—making work better for humans and humans better at work!

Belgian insights of the 2023 Human Capital Trends

How do Belgian businesses forge a new path in this dynamic and boundaryless world?

Organisations need to set new fundamentals for this boundaryless world. In the near term, almost 60% of all Belgian executives report building new workforce models and approaches to navigate and lead through disruption. This includes adopting new workforce models and implementing new combinations of people and technology.

Belgian business leaders consider focusing on skills the top priority to unlock their workforce’s full potential and remain successful in a constantly evolving environment. Work today is still primarily defined by jobs and descriptions of specific tasks, but 86.6% of the Belgian executives surveyed believe that matching worker skills with organisational priorities is important or very important to their organisation’s success.
