Deloitte calls for participation in 2019 Human Capital Survey

Over 11,000 executives from 124 countries participated in the global survey last year.

Deloitte is calling for participation in this year’s Human Capital Trends Survey, which is now running for the seventh year and offers an opportunity for members of the global human capital ecosystem to share their perspectives and help drive the conversation about the workforce, the workplace, and the changing nature of work itself.

As members of the CHRO SA community, you can help drive the understanding of global human capital issues and trends by taking the 2019 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends survey, which provides a list of potential and emerging topics identified by our global Human Capital group, and asks you about the importance of each of these topics to your organisation, your readiness to deal with them, and your capabilities and plans to address priority areas. Deloitte has a policy ensuring responses will remain completely confidential and will not be directly associated with any individual or company in any way.

C-suite executives, business leaders and HR professionals from around the world are invited to participate in this research to add to the richness and authenticity of what is the largest and longest-running study of its kind. Last year, over 11,000 executives from 124 countries participated in the global survey, including 354 South African business and HR leaders, participated in the survey which, among many other things, revealed a shift towards a growing importance of social capital in shaping an organisation’s purpose, guiding its relationships with stakeholders and influencing its ultimate success or failure. 

In that report, South African HR leaders listed the hyper-connected workplace, people data and well-being as most important human capital issues, compared to 2017 when the top three trends, ranked by importance, were the organisation of the future, employee experience and talent acquisition.
