It’s time to trade in the rules, operating constructs, and proxies of the past. Reimagining boundaryless work amid these disruptions is no longer hypothetical—or optional. The old proxies previously relied upon to measure performance may no longer apply, and there’s no easy playbook to follow that will enable organizations to thrive in this new environment. So what’s next for organizations and workers? What steps can we take to create a future full of possibility and hope in the uncertainty of a boundaryless world?

Prioritizing human performance can help organizations make the leap into a boundaryless future. We define human performance as a mutually reinforcing cycle with compounding, shared value for workers, organizations, and society— (Human outcomes) x (Business outcomes) = Human performance.

Our 2024 Global Human Capital Trends research reveals that a focus on the human factor is emerging as the bridge between knowing what shifts are shaping the future of work and doing things to make real progress toward putting them into action to create positive outcomes.

Deloitte’s 2024 Global Human Capital Trends survey polled 14,000 business and human resources leaders across many industries and sectors in 95 countries. In addition to the broad, global survey that provides the foundational data for the Global Human Capital Trends report, Deloitte supplemented its research this year with worker- and executive-specific surveys to represent the workforce perspective and uncover where there may be gaps between leader perception and worker realities. The executive survey was done in collaboration with Oxford Economics to survey 1,000 global executives and board leaders in order to understand their perspectives on emerging human capital issues. The survey data is complemented by over a dozen interviews with executives from some of today’s leading organizations. These insights helped shape the trends in this report.
