Global firms in 2020: The next decade of change for organisations and workers is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The report’s quantitative findings come from a survey of 479 senior executives, conducted in June and July 2010. To supplement the quantitative survey results, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted in-depth interviews with 15 senior executives and industry experts.
Two hundred ten survey respondents were C-level executives and the remainder were senior vice-presidents, heads of business units and other senior managers. Eighty-nine respondents have human resources (HR) responsibilities at their organisation. Many of the firms for which they work are mid-sized to large: 265 respondents hailed from companies with annual revenue of at least US$500m.
Laura Moustakerski was the author of the report and Gilda Stahl was the editor. Mike Kenny was responsible for the design.
