Global Human Capital Trends 2016

The new organization: Different by design

Effective organizations today are built around highly empowered teams, driven by a new model of management, and led by a breed of globally diverse leaders. They are “different by design." More than 7,000 HR and business leaders from 130 countries responded to this year’s survey. From this research emerged 10 trends in organization design and culture; in learning, leadership, and workforce management; and within the HR function itself.

Is your organization ready?

Sweeping global forces are reshaping the workplace, the workforce, and work itself. After years of struggling to drive employee engagement and retention, improve leadership, and build a meaningful culture, executives see a need to redesign the organization.

Four powerful forces—from demographic upheavals and the rise of digital technology to rapid business-model innovation, and socially driven evolution in the employer-employee relationship—are driving change for both HR functions and the organizations they serve, creating talent challenges and potential solutions radically different from those faced by previous generations of leaders.

Human Capital Trends interactive dashboard

This powerful tool allows you to respond to this year’s 10 trends, establish a baseline for your current HC function, and compare your organization’s responses to the responses from this year’s sample of over 7,000 companies.

How it works

Use the dashboard to rate each trend in terms of its importance to your organization and your organization’s readiness to respond to it. You can also establish a baseline for the current state of your HC function and use the dashboard to specify the companies from this year’s sample you would like to compare your responses to, based on global region, country, organization size, and industry.

You can modify your responses and comparison samples as many times as you like, comparing your organization to similar organizations or to organizations in different geographies or industries, or of different sizes.
