What are executives’ major concerns these days? I was grateful to get a fresh insight recently when I obtained a copy of the Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends 2016 report. This gave me a wonderful opportunity to identify the trends and ascertain:
- What are executive management’s most pressing concerns?
- To what extent my ‘Every Individual Matters’ model meets those concerns?
And I am happy to report that the answers were extremely satisfying. The trends are a clear barometer of the way that organisations are changing. There was nothing surprising about them or the concerns that are driving them. They are clearly long-term changes and, as such, will reshape the organisation of the future. And my ‘Every Individual Matters’ Model goes a long way to addressing nearly all of them. Let me explain why I feel so positive about this.
Naturally you will first need to know what the trends are. The following chart from the report summarises them neatly.
As the report indicates, these trends are a direct response to the need to reshape the organisation itself, largely as a result of the changing nature of business and the need to keep on top of operations to respond rapidly and appropriately to market forces. Knowing the trends, however, does not automatically make the actions any easier to take. Especially, if you try to address them in isolation.
Fortunately the ‘Every Individual Matters’ Model provides a more integrated solution that offers you the capability of addressing many of these issues simultaneously. This is also best illustrated graphically and the following chart sums up why this is the case.
It is clear then: in the modern business world, every individual matters and the ‘Every Individual Matters’ model offers you a definite solution for meeting these most pressing human capital needs.
