Global Human Capital Trends 2015

In today’s world, the barrier between work and life has all but disappeared, the balance of power in the employer-employee relationship has shifted, and Millennial demands are now driving much of workplace culture. HR and talent teams can’t afford to stay stuck on business as usual.


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

The Deloitte 2015 Global Human Capital Trends report makes the case for a new HR playbook — one that taps HR to be more agile, forward thinking, and bolder in its solutions. The report involved surveys and interviews with more than 3,300 business and HR leaders from 106 countries. Among the findings:


  • The gap is widening between what business leaders want and what HR is delivering.
  • Engagement and culture skyrocketed to the no. 1 issue around the world, with 87 percent of companies rating it important or very important vs. 79 percent last year.
  • Half the respondents rated their leadership shortfalls as "very important," while only 31 percent believe their leadership pipeline is “ready.”
  • Learning and development issues exploded, rising from the no. 8 to the no. 3 most important talent challenge in this year’s study, yet despite this demand, capabilities in learning dropped significantly.

The Deloitte Millennial Survey 2015

Findings from Deloitte's fourth annual Millennial Survey show that business, particularly in developed markets, will need to make significant changes to attract and retain the future workforce.


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

Deloitte surveyed 7,800 of tomorrow's leaders, from 29 countries, on effective leadership and how business operates and impacts society.


  • Millennials overwhelmingly believe (75 percent) businesses are focused on their own agendas rather than helping to improve society.
  • Only 28 percent of Millennials feel that their current organization is making full use of their skills.
  • More than half (53 percent) aspire to become the leader or most senior executive within their current organization, with a clear ambition gap between Millennials in emerging markets and developed markets.
  • Sixty-five percent of emerging-market based Millennials said they would like to achieve this goal, compared to only 38 percent in developed markets. This figure was also higher among men.
  • Additionally, the survey found large global businesses have less appeal for Millennials in developed markets (35 percent) compared to emerging markets (51 percent).
  • Developed-market based Millennials are also less inclined (11 percent) than Millennials in emerging markets (22 percent) to start their own business.

Millennials crave — and respond to — a good, positive coach, who can make all the difference in their success.

What do you offer in terms of coaching? Do you know how to coach well? Would be worth bringing it a coach to learn the process correctly.

Embracing the Millennials’ Mind-Set at Work

Embracing the Millennials’ Mind-Set at Work | Future of Work | Scoop.it

With its emphasis on free-flowing information, the millennial generation is highly innovative — and thus has much to offer to corporate culture.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

Excerpt from article: 


The book “Why Nations Fail,” by Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson, sheds light on why millennials are uniquely situated to take innovation to a new level. When a small, closed group of elites holds power, it tends to limit information and education and resist innovations that threaten its strength, the authors explain. By contrast, innovation thrives when information is unfettered, education is nurtured, people can readily form new groups, and decision-making is inclusive. These circumstances offset the strong tendency of those in power to resist change — in a country or at a company.
