2017 Global Human Capital Trends: Rewriting the rules for the digital age

Organizations face a radically shifting context for the workforce, the workplace, and the world of work. These shifts have changed the rules for nearly every organizational people practice, from learning to management to the definition of work itself. This year, more than 10,400 business and HR leaders from 140 countries participated in our survey. Their responses, along with more in-depth interviews and experiences with clients, reveal 10 areas for businesses to focus on to better organize, manage, develop, and align people at work.

A call to action for HR and business leaders
A number of converging issues are driving the need to "rewrite the rules." First, technology is advancing at an unprecedented rate. Individuals are relatively quick to adapt to ongoing innovations, but organizations move at a slower pace. Many still retain industrial age structure and practices that are long outdated. Even slower moving are public policy issues, such as income inequality, unemployment, immigration, and trade.

It's these gaps among technology, individuals, businesses, and public policy that are creating a unique opportunity for HR to help leaders and organizations adapt to technology, help people adapt to new models of work and careers, and help the company as a whole adapt to and encourage changes in society, regulation, and public policy.
