Employers will be challenged to re-engineer the workplace, rethink jobs and reshape the way to attract, engage and manage people if they are to drive business performance amidst a growing global economy in 2015, according to new research from Bersin by Deloitte.
The report, “Predictions for 2015: Redesigning the Organization for a Rapidly Changing World,” finds organizations should focus on bold, innovative strategies to develop leaders, engage employees and foster a healthy workplace culture.
“The global economic recovery, rapid growth of millennials in the global workforce, a 24/7 work environment, and technology-driven transparency everywhere are redefining the entire nature of work,” says Josh Bersin, the company’s principal.
In addition to predicting that companies will focus on global leadership development, engagement and culture, suggested directions for 2015 include:
>> Make performance management models more agile and transparent.
>> Take a hard look at the entire work environment, as more technology floods the work-place.
>> Realize that skills are now currency, and corporate learning is taking on increasing importance.
>> Invest, refocus and redesign talent acquisition by leveraging network recruiting, brand reach and new technologies.
