Research carried out by Experis and the ManpowerGroup over several years indicates that we have entered a new era, where business growth is driven by people, rather than technology or materials. We call it the Human Age.
Companies that are able to motivate their workforce and unlock the potential of their employees will win during the Human Age. Attracting and retaining talent is key - as employers compete for a limited supply of talent, we are likely to see a shift in power from companies to individuals. Skilled individuals will increasingly be able to dictate terms to employers, of how, where and when they work. They will naturally gravitate toward industries that offer the best career development options, display a commitment to corporate social responsibility and contribute to the communities where they are located.
