2015 Global-Survery-Report

  1. 1. JUNE 2015 SENIOR MANAGEMENT GLOBAL SURVEY REPORT 0
  2. 2. CAN WE PLEASE MOVE ON? It seems we have to start every survey report with an economic lament. It’s been eight years now and we are still dealing with a curate’s egg of an economy – good in parts. EU disarray, a restless Russia, trading sanctions, emerging market slowdown, oil price collapse are all playing their part in making sure that only some of us sleep at night while others lie awake. 51% 34% 50% 34% 60% 30% 48% 33% 66% 32% 39% 43% See continued strong revenue growth Believe the global recession is over Will add to their workforce this year Believe leadership pipeline is healthy 2015 2014 2013 1
  3. 3. THE DATA BUSINESS EXPECTATIONS Growth Nothing like the bite of reality to temper forecasts, evidently. Respondents sharply modified the 2015 expectations that they gave a year ago, in keeping with a generally poorer view now of their immediate market outlook (see “Economic Recession”) However, when they looked forward to 2016, the optimism returned. That’s the great thing about tomorrows. In the table below, the data in 2015-1 shows expectations one year ago; the data in 2015-2 shows expectations in May of this year. Workforce For the third straight year, the number of respondents intending to hire has declined. Not long ago, this would be associated strongly with economic forecasting, but the duration of the downturn has given birth to new management strategies. These plan on increased per capita productivity enabled by technology, training and more inclusive employee management. 2% 29% 38% 31% 6% 17% 18% 28% 1% 18% 25% 24% Revenue decline 15% and over 8%-14% < 8% 2016 2015-2 (revised) 2015-1 (original) 28% 66% 34% 37% 56% 50% 52% 61% 72% 34% 66% 63% 44% 50% 48% 39% 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 NO/UNSURE YES 2
  4. 4. Economic Recession This year’s survey presents a remarkable change in attitude regarding local and global market conditions. Historically, we have seen much greater faith in local conditions countering a general scepticism over the global economic picture. This year we have the opposite. Although slightly more participants feel the global recession is over, almost twice as many as last year feel their local recession is not. 48% 36% 34% 30% 32% 31% 39% 41% 23% 22% 21% 25% 25% 47% 46% 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 IS OVER IS NOT OVER UNSURE 63% 50% 48% 25% 25% 34% 25% 45% 12% 16% 27% 30% 2012 2013 2014 2015 IS OVER IS NOT OVER UNSURE 3
  5. 5. TALENT DEVELOPMENT Development Over two-thirds feel employees at their firm are engaged and motivated, which is supported by the emergence of more inclusive human capital strategies. Firms with people management goals embedded in the corporate strategy grew from 50% a year ago to 63%. Likewise, more firms offer opportunities for advancement as well as feel their leadership pipelines are being well managed. Performance Measurement Although the 2015 survey report shows a decline in the numbers claiming a “sound talent review and measurement”, those who do are recognizing the importance of fully integrating such a program across the organization. The number with review programs restricted to departments has fallen significantly while the integrated programs increase. This may be recognition of the need to have universal human capital strategies that offer a leadership path regardless of skillset. 33% 39% 50% 42% 52% 63% Our leadership pipeline is healthy We offer opportunity for advancement Our People strategy is embedded 2015 2014 10% 43% 47% 62% 25% 32% 54% 55% We have no measurement program Our program is by department only Our program is integrated throughout the company We have sound talent review & measurement 2015 2014 4
  6. 6. Coaching More participating firms who employ coaching are recognizing its value on an ongoing basis. The popular use of coaching to date has been subject or situation specific. Applying coaching to resolve issues and weaknesses remains the biggest single reason for coaching but ongoing development, or continuous career coaching, now is implemented by one third of respondents, up from 24%. 34% 24% 50% 40% 35% 40% 33% 48% 23% 33% No program Ongoing development Resolve issues/weakness New position New hire (onboarding) 2015 2014 5
  7. 7. SEARCH & RECRUITMENT Recruiting Trends Most respondents feel that quality candidates are both harder to find and harder to hire than in the past. This reflects a growing scarcity of high-value candidates, especially with niche skills. This contributes to the empowerment of candidates who enter the review process with very specific expectations in both business and quality of life terms. The “Employer Brand” The new sophistication of recruiting has seen the emergence of the “Employer Brand”, an amalgam of the values that the hiring company wishes to project. A majority of those surveyed perceive a strong influence on candidate attitudes from the employer brand, which is in line with the increased focus of candidates to select the company that best fits their work expectations. 44% 33% 18% 5% Harder to find and harder to hire Harder to find, but easier to hire Easier to find, but harder to hire Easier to find, easier to hire Strong influence upon candidates, 59% No discernable influence, 38% Negative influence, 2% 6
  8. 8. GOVERNANCE Management Diversity One of the more interesting progressions revealed by these surveys has been the increasing involvement of women and ethnic minorities in the management and guidance of companies. Boards of Directors have been slower to accept either group but we have reached 50% of respondents having women directors while ethnic minority directors are on only 20% of Boards. These figures are lower than the previous year, suggesting a different mix of companies in the responses. Women occupy C-Level management positions in 80% of the firms surveyed, compared with 51% for minorities. Firms with the following representation: 43% 83% 51% 80% Minorities Manager/director Women Minorities C-level Women 32% 44% 72% 23% 55% 70% 38% 20% 50% 69% 32% We have ethnic minority Directors We have women Directors We have independent Directors We have an independent chairman 2015 2014 2013 N/A 7
