Human Capital Trends Survey 2019: Irish Insights

Leading the social enterprise: reinvent with a human focus

Amid rapid technological, economic and social change, the most important talent trends facing Irish organisations are learning, leadership and employee experience. This is based on findings from the Deloitte Human Capital Trends 2019 survey.

The survey tracks the top trends shaping the agenda for HR leaders and business leaders globally. Completed by nearly 10,000 respondents in 119 countries, and almost 90 respondents in Ireland, Deloitte’s ninth annual report, Leading the Social Enterprise, is the largest longitudinal survey of its kind.

This document outlines the findings from the survey respondents in Ireland. In order to be able to create value as a social enterprise in today’s dynamic and demanding environment, organisations must reinvent themselves - with a human focus - on three fronts: the workforce, the organisation, and HR.
