THE LAST WORD
The world we’re working in is changing rapidly. At a time when the only certainty appears to be uncertainty, the challenge for HR to stay ahead of the pack from a talent acquisition and retention perspective is considerable. In our last The Word report, these concerns were already being noted, with respondents beginning to restructure their organisations to respond to ever-changing digital advancements. Concerns then were being raised about the impact this could have upon brands and their ability to attract and retain talent.
This, our second report, carries on where our last global survey left off. It reveals that HR’s priority for finding and keeping talent is once again the top challenge (for 73 per cent of respondents). But â in a change of direction â if the 2018 findings were all about preparing for digital, the most recent results reveal the extent to which HRDs have reservations about it at a practical level in real-life recruitment and talent development scenarios.
