2023 Global Human Capital Trends
New fundamentals for a boundaryless world
Deloitte’s 2023 Global Human Capital Trends survey polled 10,000 business and HR leaders across every industry, with 105 countries participating. The survey data is complemented by interviews with executives from some of today’s leading organizations. The insights shaped the trends in this report.
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. Organizations and workers must traverse this new landscape together, calling on a new set of fundamentals to navigate the boundaryless world.
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.

Leading in a boundaryless world
Your organization and its leaders are facing a pivotal reframing moment as business and societal shifts continue to change the trajectory of organizations’ human agendas. To thrive, leaders must evolve in tandem with their organizations and adopt a new set of fundamentals to mobilize workers and teams against new outcomes.
Leadership in a boundaryless world is less about formal authority and more about use of insight, personal accountability, connection to values, and action.
This means you
Leaders today can be anyone who mobilizes workers to get work done and is no longer contingent on position, hierarchy, or the number of direct reports.
The choice in front of you
This is your opportunity to take advantage of the lack of boundaries to reframe your role in creating the future of your organization.
