As the top challenge for 2015, CEOs view Human Capital in all its forms—from dynamic leadership to a skilled and engaged workforce cadre—as the primary fuel that will drive the engines of growth within their organizations. Results from the 2015 CEO Challenge survey show CEOs are committed to high-quality, sustainable growth through a "grow-your-own" strategy of talent development. They are looking to human capital practitioners to improve leadership effectiveness and foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship—all while raising employee engagement and providing the skills training needed to create the workforce of the future.
This report is based on 943 responses from CEOs, presidents, and chairmen to The Conference Board CEO Challenge survey, distributed between September and October 2014.
