My friend Brian Galbraith from Perth, Australia recently sent me a copy of a new report – published this month by IBM Global Business Services.
The report is called 'Unlocking the DNA of the Adaptable Workforce.'
There are 4 key isses to emerge for the future of workforce development - according to this worldwide research. The report was written after interviews with 400 Human Resources Executives in 40 countries
- Create an adaptable workforce – my take on that - encourage the frontliners who actually do the work
- Leadership Gap – my take - find inspiring leaders
- Talent – my take - find your talent and nurture it
- Workforce Analysis – my take - HR to use information to help transform business rather than simply gather and collate information for transactional purposes.
These 4 conclusions, needless to say, are music to my ears.
