Oakland, Calif. — Jan. 8
Bersin by Deloitte, a provider of research-based membership programs in human resources, talent and learning, has announced new research that predicts that as businesses around the world expand in 2013 they will face a growing shortage of talent and leadership.
This will drive an accelerated need for business agility, career development and talent mobility programs, leadership development and re-engagement of the workforce. Bersin by Deloitte delivers its outlook in “Predictions for 2013: Corporate Talent, Leadership and HR — Nexus of Global Forces Drives New Models for Talent.”
The report points out that while compliance and core HR programs continue to be business-critical, they often do not add enough value in today’s global business environment. Chief HR officers and their teams that have found ways to automate, streamline and outsource “non-strategic” parts of their operations and focus on more strategic initiatives will likely outperform their peers.
Adding to this shift, the HR technology industry continues to undergo significant changes. Cloud-based HR systems, now available from many of the largest vendors in the market, integrate payroll, human resource management systems, talent management and analytics processing into a single service. Global spending on these complex systems is anticipated to grow 22 percent to nearly $4 billion in 2012-2013 — almost double the growth rate of 12 percent in 2011-2012.
In 2013, technology innovation is anticipated to accelerate as mobile tools and social recruiting systems make obsolete many of the HR systems in place. New tools will empower employees to find experts, share information, manage their careers and become more interlinked than ever.
