Press release

New York, NY, 2 June 2015 – Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) is pleased to announce that Kennedy has named Deloitte member firms (Deloitte) a global leader in talent management in their report entitled Talent Management Consulting 2015. The report covers the rapidly evolving marketplace with analysis aligned to specific trends, business and client challenges, regions, and industries.

The research examines the breadth and depth capabilities of 18 organizations assessed in the Kennedy Vanguard™ of Talent Management Consulting Providers and summarizes the service offerings of 14 more that specialize in one or more components of talent management. Discussing trends in this sector Kennedy notes, “There are numerous drivers of talent management consulting with global megatrends exerting the greatest pressure on today’s business landscape and the future of work – demographic shifts, shifts in global economic power, technological breakthroughs, and the increasing relevance of data analytics. These forces have reached a tipping point and business leaders recognize there is a real need to manage the workforce and the workplace differently.”

Specifically for Deloitte, Kennedy notes, “Deloitte brings to market unparalleled breadth and depth of talent service offerings and ecosystem relationships that can be uniquely configured to meet clients’ specific needs and price points.”

Jeff Schwartz, the DTTL global leader for talent strategies adds “that changing demographics and technology are rapidly changing how and where work is done – and as a result organizations are requiring different talent strategies to grow and compete. We are pleased that Kennedy had recognized Deloitte’s commitment to helping leaders navigate the complexity of leading in the new world of work.”
