ACROSS all sectors and industries, businesses are experiencing disruption in the form of new ideas, technologies and creative services in a rapid and unprecedented manner, resulting in increasing demands on employees.
To address this, we believe businesses need to constantly evolve and embrace new opportunities together with employees by inculcating a sense of ownership and empowering them to drive positive change. Investing in coaching and career development will help further motivate employees and enable them to see how their contributions will help the company succeed.
Existing people strategies need to be updated to reflect the rapid pace of change and achieve sustainable growth in talent.
