This year’s study gathered input from 400+ senior executives, 1,700+ HR professionals, and 5,400+ employees from 20 industries and 37 countries around the world. Technology advances are re-shaping value chains, making people and information more accessible, and re-defining how work gets done. At the same time, the changing demographic profile of employees and shifting expectations of the work experience are challenging the traditional model of what it means to “go to work.” An overarching theme of Empowerment in a Disruptive World permeates how business leaders, HR professionals, and employees are viewing the Future of Work. The four key trends the report deep-dives into are: Growth by design, a shift in what we value, a workplace for me and the quest for insights. The report then details 3 imperatives key for companies to leap forward, namely: attracting & retaining tomorrow’s workforce, building for an unknown future and cultivating a thriving workforce.
Key trends revealed in Mercer’s Talent Trends 2017 are:
- Growth By Design: Driving a bold change agenda
- A Shift In What We Value: A new rewards paradigm is needed
- A Workplace For Me: Personalization of the employee experience
- The Quest For Insight: Predictive analytics are still out of reach
