A new Michael Page study shows that, far from being a management cliché, people really are an organisation’s most important resource. Recognition of this reality means HR leaders are placing a heightened focus on managing and retaining talent. In doing so, HR is increasing its own value to the business as an operational and strategic partner.
According to the study, which polled the views of over 2,500 HR leaders worldwide, the current top priorities for HR are: talent management, training & development and talent recruitment.
See our global infographic for an at-a-glance view of the study highlights.
What priorities have Swiss HR leaders set for the next 12 months? How will they respond to changes in the job market and the increased demands being placed on them? Do they have what it takes to guide the organisation and successfully develop its workforce? Is the issue of diversity & inclusion a hot topic in Switzerland – or are there other, more pressing, priorities?
How HR is at the Forefront of Business Growth and Transformation
Based on extensive data collected from across the globe, the Barometer reveals the changing role of HR in becoming key to business growth and its evolution into an operational and strategic business partner.
Michael Page’s Global HR Barometer is a comprehensive and unique study of HR leaders’ response to the changing, challenging role of HR.
The results are based on extensive data collected from over 2,500 HR managers in 65 countries, in organisations ranging from SMEs to blue-chip brands in a cross-section of industries. This broad sample means the study’s observations on the HR landscape are founded on solid data.
