Following a detailed analysis of the world's shifting trends and dynamics, Manpower Inc. has identified the following megatrends as critical to navigating the changing world of work:
The Demographics and Talent Mismatch. The pressure to find the right skills at the right time will increase as working age populations decline, economies rebound, emerging markets rise, and the nature of work shifts.
Individual Choice. Individuals are exercising their choice as they realize they have the power to opt for or against a given job, requiring companies to think differently about how they attract, retain and stay relevant to an ever select group of talented individuals.
Rising Customer Sophistication. The transparency and velocity of information exchange throughout the entire value chain is creating innovation and tension at every level within that chain.
Technological Revolutions. Having the power to change where, when and how we work, enabling organizations and individuals to be more agile and innovative, is happening on a daily basis and we've only seen the tip of the iceberg.
