Human Capital

Today’s business challenges present a new wave of HR, talent, and organization priorities. Deloitte’s Human Capital services leverage research, analytics, and industry insights to help design and execute critical programs from business driven HR to innovative talent, leadership, and change programs.

Activate workforce ecosystems

Organizations need to expand their definition of the workforce to include all workers who contribute value to an organization in a workforce ecosystem. By orchestrating their leadership, governance, technology and overall management and workforce practices well beyond their company’s own full-time employees, organizations can unlock trapped value and achieve some of their most pressing objectives.

Tech Trends 2022: A human capital perspective

Exploring the mutual acceleration of work and technology

Because the work humans do and the capabilities that technologies provide are so closely related, they share a trajectory—each shaping the other and propelling each other into the future. Dive into our human capital perspective on Deloitte’s Tech Trends 2022 report to discover how technology is enabling the shift from traditional talent models to workforce ecosystems.

Work toward net zero

As the world transitions to net zero, a new category of worker is evolving-the Green Collar workforce.

Today, more than 800 million jobs worldwide are highly vulnerable to climate extremes and the economic transition to net zero.

But with coordinated and rapid decarbonization and the right policies in place, more than 300 million additional Green Collar jobs can be created by 2050.

With so much to lose, and even more to gain. How do we make the workforce transition, work for all?

Fueling the AI transformation

Four key actions powering widespread value from AI, right now

If you’re like most of the 2,620 global business leaders we surveyed, you know AI is vital. In fact, most say it’s essential to driving outcomes, from cost reduction to entering new markets. But understanding AI’s value and achieving it are two different things. Our report takes a cross-industry look at AI deployments and outcomes achieved to reveal key actions every organization should be taking to gain widespread value from AI.

AI for work relationships may be a great untapped opportunity

AI can do more than make work better for humans—It can help make better humans for work.

You’re frustrated. Two functional leaders are pulling you into a nasty turf war when you need them to collaborate. You’re writing a frustrated reply, when a friend stops you. They recommend more appropriate wording, and that you ask the functional leaders to schedule a meeting to discuss conflicting priorities and come up with a solution. You take the recommendation and cool off. You would like to reach out and thank your friend and confidante, but you can’t because they’re an AI. With the help of current artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, this—and many other social capabilities—may already be possible with the tools that many organizations have access to.

Build trust in diversity, equity, and inclusion commitments

Sincere commitment and collaborative action advance successful DEI efforts in the workplace—and strengthen the bond with your workforce

Since the spring of 2020, many organizations have made public commitments to address societal disparity and injustice, and established or expanded diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives for their current and future workforce. After more than a year of accelerated efforts, the questions arise: Do workers trust their organizations’ commitment and efforts thus far? And how might this change going forward?
