Why does planning for the future of work matter more than ever?
The talent landscape has been dynamic in recent years. Trends like the impact of an aging workforce and baby boomer retirements, and the many ways that technology has changed the work that people do and how they do it, have been at play across industries. But now we are in difficult and uncharted waters.
In the COVID-19 crisis, organizations are finding themselves in unfamiliar terrain. Those that take a systematic approach to workforce recovery starting now—rightsizing, allocating budgets, and understanding how to fill talent, role, and skills gaps—will emerge stronger and be better positioned for success in the new normal.
