Bersin by Deloitte, a leading provider of research-based membership programs in human resources (HR), talent and learning, today announced new research that predicts that as businesses around the world expand in 2013, they will face a growing shortage of talent and leadership. This will drive an accelerated need for business agility, career development and talent mobility programs, leadership development and re-engagement of the workforce.
In Predictions for 2013: Corporate Talent, Leadership and HR—Nexus of Global Forces Drives New Models for Talent, the report points out that while compliance and core HR programs continue to be business-critical, they often do not add enough value in today’s global business environment. Chief HR officers (CHROs) and their teams who have found a way to automate, streamline and outsource such “non-strategic” parts of their operations and focus on more strategic initiatives will likely outperform their peers.
The 2013 report includes 15 predictions that highlight many of the sweeping changes underway in the economy and the workplace as they relate to three broad areas: business leadership and talent; HR technology, tools and markets; and HR organizations, strategy and leadership.
