Why a perennial issue?
For the third year in a row, leadership soared to become one of the most pressing talent challenges faced by global organisations. So, if nearly every company recognizes leadership as a critical talent problem, why are so few companies making any progress in addressing it?
Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report indicates a continuing lack of progress in addressing what has become a perennial organizational challenge: leadership. In today’s competitive business environment and rapidly evolving world of work, organisations should continuously develop a robust portfolio of leaders who are ready to engage employees, push forward growth strategies, drive innovation, and work directly with customers. Companies that fail to invest continuously in the leaders of tomorrow may find themselves falling behind their competitors.
