2020 Global Human Capital Trends

This year's report asks if organisations can remain distinctly human in a technology-driven world

In light of the unique challenges posed by COVID-19, the future of work has become a strong reality. Over the past few months, leaders have been compelled to make swift, bold choices in an effort to mitigate the shockwaves felt across the globe. Some of the results have been inspiring, with many leaders mobilising at rates previously unimaginable.

What’s next is critical; organisations across New Zealand have a unique opportunity to reimagine work itself, drawing on the lessons, practices, and goodwill built during the accelerated crisis response. 

2020 Global Human Capital Trends

Deloitte’s 2020 Global Human Capital Trends report offers business leaders’ a path forward to prepare for the future by embedding three attributes into the organisation’s core: purpose, potential, and perspective

  • Organisations that embrace purpose embed meaning into every aspect of work every day, playing to their workers’ complementary strengths in the service of a common goal
  • Organisations that embrace potential are designed to maximise what humans are capable of thinking, creating, and doing, enabling their people’s potential for long-term success in work
  • Organisations that embrace perspective see uncertainty as offering possibilities rather than threats, positioning themselves to take decisive action to shape an unknown future

This year’s report, our tenth annual, is the world’s largest longitudinal study of human resources (HR), talent, and related topics ever conducted. It draws on the insights of nearly 9,000 survey respondents from 119 countries including New Zealand and includes actionable strategies and stories from organisations at the forefront of reinvention.

Deloitte New Zealand hosted webinar sessions in which some of our Human Capital practice leaders and leading New Zealand organisations provided an in-depth perspective on each of this year’s trends.
