Welcome to the first Human Capital Center newsletter of 2019, intended to deliver trusted insights for you and your team on ‘What’s Ahead’. Each month, we’ll select a few insights from our latest research, let you know of new initiatives, provide opportunities to connect with peers and experts, and update you on thought leadership.
To get started, here is an insight from our annual flagship report, the C-Suite Challenge™ 2019: The Future-Ready Organization.
Developing the next generation of leaders is critical to future success. But is there enough emphasis on developing digital skills? Investments CEOs will make to get future leaders ready include improving the quality of formal training and offering more cross-functional rotational opportunities—sweet spots for millennials. But they may be missing a critical piece of the developmental puzzle—exposing leaders to digital experiences. Less than one-third chose providing this experience as one of their top three leadership development investments.
We are also delighted to be launching a new Learning and Development Council, open to senior executives responsible for Learning, People Development, or Corporate Universities. If you want to find out more about becoming a founding member, you can visit the council page here.
