PERFECT FIT JOBS

In fact, to understand how the current economic crisis has affected talent, Deloitte, has been conducting a longitudinal survey to gauge how top executives and talent managers across the global economy are reshaping their work forces as they confront the most challenging operating environment in generations.

With layoffs continuing to capture headlines and unemployment rates rising worldwide, it is not surprising that reducing headcount remains a significant focus for surveyed executives when it comes to managing talent.
Deloitte, study suggest that surveyed executives cannot predict with certainty when the recovery will take hold, there are clear indications that their companies are putting plans in place to capitalize when the recession ends. One significant development in the May survey was how executives expect to shift talent priorities over the next three months.
Looking forward to the coming quarter, surveyed executives and talent managers predict that employee development and training initiatives will rival headcount reductions as their top talent priority. When asked to anticipate their company’s talent priorities three months from now, 34% of survey participants rank reducing headcount first, closely followed by training and development at 31%.
As employee development efforts take on additional importance over the coming months, many surveyed executives are ramping up specific training programs within their companies. More than four in ten executives report they plan to increase training and development programs related to high-potential employee development (46%) and leadership/management development (42%), while 35% are expanding onboarding initiatives and 33% anticipate greater investments in regulatory, security, and risk training.
This renewed emphasis on developing employees can be seen most clearly when comparing May’s survey results with past surveys. Compared to March, the percentage of executives who anticipate an increase in leadership/ management development training jumped by 15 points (42% to 27%), with double-digit increases also occurring in high-potential employee development training (46% to 34%) and onboarding programs (35% to 25%).
As training programs ramp up, surveyed executives are also looking to add experience and leadership to the ranks of their work forces. While graduating college students, part-timers, contract hires, and outsourced hires can all expect the tight job market to continue, employees with experience and leadership are in demand at many of the surveyed companies.
